There I was, spending the month of October in Budapest, when I found that my apartment's coffee maker was broken. Foggy-headed with muddled thoughts (as any daily coffee-drinker will understand), I headed downstairs and to Caffè GianMario for some piping hot mental clarity. I was welcomed warmly and, though my Italian was rudimentary in the wake of my non-caffeinated thought process, it too was a pleasant surprise for the staff; this blue-eyed and freckled girl speaking their language.
I didn't mind that my coffee machine was broken in the proceeding weeks, as every morning I would go down to this café to see my new friends and grab an espresso. If you're looking for warm, welcoming service with a cultural flair, definitely give Caffè GianMario your business. It's a perfect option for lunch, dinner, drinks, or just a quick coffee to start your morning.
