The New York Café is a Must-See Stop in Budapest

Being a traveler is the most beautiful hobby a person can have. Visiting and learning about new countries, cities, streets, places, and all the charms they have to offer is a priceless experience. Every city in the world has its appeals, and one of Budapest’s and Europe’s most charming spots is – The New York Café.


The New York Café is in the heart of the New York Palace, a luxury hotel on the Grand Boulevard of Budapest’s Erzsébet körút. It was opened in 1894 and built-in an eclectic Italian Renaissance-style. At the turn of the 20th century, it was the most beautiful and the most beloved coffee house in Budapest.

It has preserved all the authentic decoration and flair that once made it an inspiration for the enquiring minds of Hungary’s cultural and intellectual community. It was a popular place among writers and editors of the most influential newspapers.
