Blue Bird Cafe is a very interesting cafeteria and a temple for real coffee lovers.
Located at Budapest´s Gozsdu Court (Jewish Quarter) it has a really extensive coffee offer. You can choose from several hand made roasted beans from different regions such as Kenya, Brazil, Ethiopia, Mexico and Indonesia. A lot of colorful illustrations and storyboards on the wall show you the world of coffee-making.
Downstairs they have their own coffee lab and raw beans. Another highlight is that in addition to being a cafe, Blue Bird roasts their own coffee. This means they have the ability to offer a variety of espresso options at a time without sacrificing freshness and you can also buy some selected hand-roasted coffee beans to take home.
As for the interior décor it is fantastic, very creative and cozy. Different style furniture, blue colored origami birds, blankets in each seat and a parrot welcoming the guests. A simple menu printed on wooden boards offers hungry people a selection of delicious cakes and pastries (all home made), breakfast options, sandwiches and salads.
A little more expensive than some places but offers great coffee in an extraordinary atmosphere. Friendly staff and nice low volume music.
I you are a coffee lover with some free time this is a great option to discover new flavors. And if you are just visiting Budapest and looking for a cozy place to have tasty coffee, good breakfast or a delicious dessert then I´m sure you´ll enjoy this place.
