The Most Beautiful Cafe in the World - New York Cafe

Did you realize that you live in the city with the most beautiful cafe in the civilized world? According to U City Guides travelers judged the New York Cafe in Budapest to be the most beautiful.

Once upon a time it was a meeting place of 19th century literary giants in Budapest. It was then taken over by government, and as could be expected, became lifeless and dull. Then it was to be sold. For over a decade it sat in the middle of town surrounded by scaffolding while deals were being worked out by various principles.
This is how it looked way back when.

Finally the Italian chain of hotels Boscolo bought and remodeled the grand old dame (once the flagship of New York Insurance).

It is no longer grungy, smoky and certainly the staff no longer behaves with the the socialist standard of indifference. The Cafe is bright and shiny with a refined air.

Feel like giving yourself a treat and dream of days gone by? Stop by and sit for a while. Bring a book, a camera or a stack of post cards to write while enjoying your fragrant cafe and caloric treats. The New York Cafe is a beautiful marker in Budapest of an era that 'used to be'.
This is how the interior looks today.
