In the history of my travels, no other city turned out to be such a positive surprise as Budapest. While regular travelers focus on trying the local cuisine such as Hungarian goulash or leczo, I make it my mission to find a coffee shop I can fall in love with.

An ideal coffee shop has it all: lovely decor, delicious coffee and of course beautiful, mouth-watering pastries. If it happens to be a French boulangerie, say no more. I am in love!

First À Table coffee shop was founded in 2011 by two entrepreneurs: French man – Anthony Lecaudeand, and Hungarian – Peter Hajdu, who could not deal with the absence of French baguettes on the Budapest market. The concept of the authentic French Boulangerie serving freshly baked goods and delicious pâtisseries was received so enthusiastically by the Hungarians that three more À Table stores opened within only three years.

À Table`s interior makes you feel like you just traveled back in time. Hard chairs, dark wood tables, and shelves took me back to my granny’s kitchen. Above the counter, you can spot all kinds of pots, bowls, cooking spoons, sieves and ladles she would use for cooking and baking. The floor creaks at every step and walls are covered with old sepia and black & white photographs. 

Can it get more romantic than this? Shelves weighed down with À Table crispy croissants, yummy éclairs, quiches, le mille-feuilles, and tartes au citron. My heart skips a beat at the first glance.

À Table serves breakfast from 7 am utill 2 pm. In their offer, you find a great choice of sets, including toasted brioche with poached eggs, omelets and famous French sandwiches: Croque Madame and Croque Monsieur.

I could not resist their croissants aux amandes and pain au chocolat pistache. Attention, foodies! These pistachio and chocolate croissants are a piece of heaven, absolutely delicious and highly addictive. They are also really difficult to find anywhere else, but in À Table in Budapest: not even in France!
