The Zsolnay Café’s selection of desserts is unmatched in Budapest, and many of the treats on offer are made without traditional sugar, using hazelnut and almond flour.

The Zsolnay Café is one of the most special places in Budapest. Some of our customers come for our delicious, hot food, while others are looking for a place to chat over a cup of coffee or tea, and some might simply fancy a mug of hot chocolate with home-made whipped cream while leafing through the daily newspapers. It’s the perfect venue for sitting down to congenial business lunches and suppers, holding inspiring company meetings, sharing a romantic bottle of champagne, or just enjoying an evening of cocktails with friends. Our customers tell us that we’re an oasis of calm on the busy Teréz körút stretch of the Grand Boulevard, where every member of our team works to make sure that everyone who walks through our door feels right at home.
Let’s meet again for a coffee, supper, or perhaps a drink. The main point is to have a good chat, and to enjoy a sociable, coffee-house experience!
The Café is on the ground floor of the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel, Budapest first opened in 1985, after the hotel was reconstructed. It took its name from the world-famous Zsolnay porcelain factory. Originally it was housed in the ceremonial hall on the first floor, but was later moved close to the street, so now you just have to walk through the main entrance to find your table. In keeping with tradition, for decades the coffee, tea and desserts have been served in Zsolnay cups and on Zsolnay dessert plates specially designed for the hotel.More...
In Budapest it’s a notable achievement for an old, venerable institution to have existed for a hundred years, especially having remained a hotel for all this time. The secret of survival for the Britannia, Béke and Radisson Blue was to carefully preserve traditions while constantly innovating and adapting.
The building located at Teréz körút 43, formerly known as the Britannia Hotel, first opened for business on 10 May 1913. Its first owner, the wealthy coffee merchant Henrik Fábri, based his new establishment on the English model. The hotel was fitted with the latest amenities: the rooms had running hot and cold water, steam and water-based central heating, and a central vacuum cleaning system were installed. Above the doors to the rooms special lights were fitted for calling room service.More...
"Nowadays cooking is all about kitchen technology. I am proud of being a real cooking chef; I love the smell of the kitchen, the humour of my colleagues, creativity in my job and our achievments. I beleive that everything is teamwotk in the kitchen, so I only claim from my colleagues that I personally can do. Zsolnay Café is a highly inspirative surrounding, the ideal place for phantasy as you can feel all the tradition of a 100 years old café but the everchanging environment pushes you towards a very cool gastronomy line. Lets the culture of 100 years return but let me give a little flick to it…"
„We offer the old Hungarian classics – Dobos Torte and Eszterházy Cake – as well as reinventions of the traditional sweets, such as a layered version of Somlói Galuska, or the completely new desserts conjured up by us, which cannot be tasted anywhere else, like the Szófia Míra.”
László Barna believes that his work can only be performed with total dedication, with heart and soul, because this is the only way of working the magic that goes into making a truly special dessert. He is a dedicated and energetic craftsman willing to learn every day. As a student and as pastry chef, he remains faithful to the traditions of his craft and the creative strength of his team.
There has always been a special place for art in our 106-year-old building, both during its days as the Britannia and later as the Béke Hotel, and of course in its present guise as the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel, Budapest. Our gallery has operated for years in the iconic first-floor Cupola Room designed by Jenő Haranghy. Every month temporary exhibitions are held in the Gallery, mainly displaying the works of contemporary artists and talented young newcomers. The exhibitions can be viewed every day between 09:00 and 19:00.
The beautiful Zsolnay porcelain and ceramic products are known and recognised the world over. Our coffee-house is named after the legendary porcelain maker. And in keeping with tradition, for decades the coffee, tea and desserts have been served in Zsolnay cups and on Zsolnay dessert plates specially designed for the Radisson Blu Béke Hotel, Budapest.
The unrivaled virtuoso experimentation technique and the special material make it possible to see through the depths of the soil and the rocks in the pictures of Mr. Tamás Felsmann and son, István Felsmann. After pouring and post-treatment of the resin and layering of the various materials, it gains its current plastic surface, thus achieving the unity of painting and sculpture. It becomes visible and feasible as the water looks for its way and as the light defeats dark, so the water can penetrate the solid material until it finds its way to the surface.
