A must see when you are in Budapest --- NEW YORK CAFE at the Boscolo Hotel. Be prepared to wait, there is a queue and it doesn't look like they take reservations.
The New York Cafe is a beautiful baroque cafe which must be experienced. This cafe was designed by Hauszmann, Korb and Giergl in 1894, and was housed on the ground floor of the NEW YORK PALACE. The Palace was severely damaged by the two world wars. In 2006, The New York Cafe reopened its doors to the new owners, Boscolo Hotel and since then it has become a part of the Boscolo Hotel in Budapest, Hungary.
The architecture and decor are just unbelievable . The design is simplyamazing. You must go to see this cafe which is more than 100 years old and the interior is just breathtaking... See the intricate detailing of the ceiling and bannisters. It is gorgeous! This is not a cafe! It is a palace.
