Venue Info

One of the few authentic Hungarian restaurants in New York, Budapest Cafe is a reminder of when Yorkville was once considered Little Budapest, back in the '80s. This slender cafe is serving up hearty dishes beloved in the motherland -- from sweet and savory palacsinta (Hungarian crepes) to chicken paprikash and stuffed cabbage. For dessert, there's strudel by the slice, chestnut purée with whipped cream, rolad, and more pastries. Like classic Hungarian cuisine should, these filling plates will stick to your ribs and warm you up on a brisk day. The brick walls adorned with knick-knacks, photos, and Hungarian wines will have you feeling cozy, too.
