California Coffee Company Budapest

Our cafés have been a part of Budapest’s cityscape for almost one and a half decades. We opened our first café in Teréz körút at a time when takeaway coffee was such a new idea that long queues were lining up in front of the shop.

Today, we have 6 cafés in Budapest and area, and we are a well-known brand among Hungarian café chains. We keep varying our selection to meet our customers’ tastes and looking for new flavors going back as far as the birthplace of Italian coffee culture, Sicily. Our goal is always to create a café atmosphere rooted in tradition, where we can offer a youthful and urban. peaceful and pleasant time to all our beloved customers from travellers dropping in to regular customers reading their daily papers next to their freshly brewed esresso. From young to old, from those in a hurry to those taking a break, from those getting their daily refreshments to businesspeople organizing their meetings, everyone can find the place, the café closest to them.

We hope to see you soon!

As responsible dog owners, we launched as a dog-friendly place at the very beginning, and we’ve never stopped hoping to see our four legged friends. We try to promote a healthy lifestyle as our part of our social involvement, and therefore our selection now includes paleo desserts and lactose-free milk alternatives.
