Certainly there are few cities in Europe as beautiful as Budapest as certainly there are also few places in Budapest as beautiful as Grand Café Liberté.
Opened in 1902, the Grand Café Liberté is a cultural and intellectual landmark of the city of Budapest. Located in the best area of the prestigious 5th district of the capital, a few meters from Szabadság tér, specifically in Aulich utca 8, 1054 Budapest.
Since the early twentieth century, Grand Café Liberté has lived different times, the most interesting a first stage when the poet Endre Ady frequented the place in the company of intellectual friends of that so vivid moment that the city of Budapest lived.
Also interesting is the current moment, since three years the Grand Café has reopened its doors with a surprising bet: it has a decoration well furnished in Art Decor style, has excellent petit déjeuner from 9am to noon, an exquisite pressed coffee with a La Marzocco, has à la carte from noon every day of the week, brunch on weekends and attractive menus during the week with an unbeatable price for the area, which makes customers lunch there from Monday to Friday without hesitation.
The interior of the place is impressive, spacious, with different areas on different levels, all in harmony with the place, with its location, with its history… is a real pleasure to sit there and enjoy the imaginary.
With such amazing characteristics, it is not surprising that the Grand Café Liberté’s clientele is varied as a whole, from politicians or bankers to artists or local citizens, many curious tourists, film or theater actors, men and business women, all of them come together in a place where they find a common denominator: an intimate place to enjoy in the heart of the historical and cultural city of Budapest.
Grand Café Liberté has a traditional Hungarian style cuisine restated in a modern way with an enviable Hungarian wine list and more than 90 wines and champagnes from different parts of the world… without forgetting the specialness of their desserts, the coffees, the liquors, the ambiental music, the exotic light that the place has during the day and nights, makes this place so special, so interesting to go and try, and try again and again!
