Both Kálvin square and Astoria are quite busy spots of the city, and if you happen to be there hungry, then lucky for you, VegaCity is right between the two. It is a very friendly vegan restaurant, where there are different daily menus each day and tasty breakfast in the morning. You can have a hamburger, gluten- and sugar-free desserts here, sandwiches, or fresh juices and smoothies. Must-tries are the Gandaburi, which is a gluten free vegan hamburger, and the banana-date cookie, which I made from chick-pea flour.

Hokedli is located in one of the busiest parts of downtown Budapest. Here they will amaze you with locally made vegetarian, gluten- and lactose-free meals. Hokedli is very popular and well-loved, mainly because they allow animals inside, so if you’re craving a fresh soup but you’re out walking your dog, no worries: Hokedli is always there for you.

Hilda is named after the imaginary lover of one of the most significant Hungarian architects of the 19th century, József Hild. The interior design of HILDA gives off young and fresh vibes, yet it is still calm in the middle of the busy city. The gluten- and lactose-free, and vegetarian meals are affordable here, and all of them are made from organic ingredients.

Find Food is tiny, friendly and lactose-free, but they serve gluten free, vegetarian and vegan meals too. They mainly focus on sandwiches, soups, and pottages, but they have different daily menus and different cakes per day. We suggest trying their Italian Carraro coffees for our coffee lover readers and their breakfast sandwiches. Currently, there are chicken, avocado, chorizo or pulled pork sandwiches, but they all change according to season.
