The New York Café, Budapest

by Ian Topping

A highlight of any visit to the city must be a stop at the New York Café. We had heard the rumours of the fabulous food this place offered and had to explore for ourselves and discover how true the stories were.

We were not disappointed. As well as cakes to die for, we were able to soak up the magnificent décor and ambience of the place. As we savoured the opulent cakes we could sit back and enjoy the music from a classical quartet playing music by none other than the famous Hungarian composers, Franz Liszt and Béla Bartók.
