Budapest's first romkocsma (ruin pub), Szimpla Kert is firmly on the tourist trail but remains a landmark place for a drink. It's a huge complex with nooks filled with bric-a-brac, graffiti, art and all manner of unexpected items. Sit in an old Trabant car, watch a film in the open-air back courtyard, down shots or join in an acoustic jam session.

Brunch made with produce from the weekend farmers' market is served on the 1st floor from 9am to 2pm on Saturday (4000Ft) and Sunday (5000Ft).
