One in five Budapest residents has a dog, so it’s no wonder the city infrastructure has adapted well to cater to their needs. In downtown green areas, it is not uncommon to see enclosed dog parks as well as playgrounds, special bins for dog owners’ use and, needless to say, lots of dog-friendly places where your pet is just as welcome as you are.
Madách Square is one of the most popular areas in Budapest. Whether it is a cup of coffee, a bite to eat or a pint of beer you are after, this is a great destination. Központ is a favourite meeting place for the younger crowd, and offers lavish breakfasts, coffees, teas and drinks if you head there. Four-legged guests are guaranteed to receive a warm welcome and a bowl of fresh water.
Just a few steps away, My Little Melbourne is one of the best new wave cafés in the city, with specially roasted coffees and excellent quality teas, juices and cakes to be sampled. All in the company of our little friend, needless to say.
If you would also like to have a taste of the ruin pub scene, Ellátó Kert on Kazinczy Street is open to visitors with dogs. The diverse musical selection, quality drinks and friendly staff guarantee that you will have a pleasant time. This is the place where residents of Budapest also tend to come with their pets in tow.
In the 13th District, La Mimosa is equally famous for its delicious desserts and its dog-friendly atmosphere. The same is true for Kino Café on Szent István Boulevard, where you can tuck into fantastic sandwiches and salads in the company if your furry friend. If you feel the need for a cup of exceptionally soul-soothing tea, Altair Tea House on Puskin Street probably has just the right thing for you, with 70 types of teas to choose from, as well as soft drinks and hookah pipes.
