Known as the Pearl of the Danube, Budapest is a real gem of a city, where you can tour grand monuments in the morning, slip into a thermal bath in the afternoon and party in a world-famous ruin bar after sunset.
Travellers tend to forget there's more to Hungary than Budapest. While the capital continues to dazzle visitors with its art nouveau architecture, thermal baths and ruin pubs, it’s well worth taking a few day trips to get to know a bit more of the country.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that breakfast is the best part of the day, whether you’re an early bird eager to have your first bites by eight or a late riser needing your perfect pick-me-up brunch. From crispy croissants with warm melted cheese oozing out after the first bite to fluffy American pancakes soaked in maple syrup or a hearty Hungarian ratatouille, the options are endless in Budapest. And as all-day-breakfasts are common, you don’t even have to be a morning person. All aboard the brunch bandwagon, calling at seven of Budapest’s best brekkie spots that all tick the taste box.
