+ 1 extra suggestion: the Cserpes Tejivó branch 

The milk bar (“tejivó” in Hungarian) is no new invention. Its history in Budapest dates back to the early 20th century. Such shops used to sell beverages made with milk, soft drinks and pastry. Some Hungarians still recall the exceptional atmosphere of these establishments, and the splendid feeling of sipping a steaming cup of coffee while eating a delicious croissant.
The menu is simple: cottage cheese pockets, cocoa rolls, croissants, scone, jam pocket, pastries mostly for breakfast or tea, complemented by sandwiches, salads and desserts. Regarding drinks, they offer milk, cocoa milk, latte, lemonade and tea.
