“You are a wizard, Harry.” This is the moment young Harry Potter finds out that he is a magician and heads to Hogwarts where he meets Ron and Hermione, his best friends. If you did not receive a letter from an owl saying you got into the world’s most famous wizard school, do not worry, because Budapest can offer the same experience.
Sóbors reported that the first Harry Potter Café in Budapest, located in Óbuda, offers everything a true Harry Potter fan needs and dreams of. When you enter the café, you will find people sitting in the Gryffindor uniform. While drinking a cup of coffee, you can observe many objects from the world-famous books and movies.
Repülő Seprű (Flying Broom) is decorated with countless objects from Harry Potter: clothes, newspapers, dragons, owls, the magic wand of Dumbledore, and many more.
The café is the perfect place for children and adults as well because, besides ordering some coffee, you can also try out different kinds of activities, such as making a magic wand or trying out quidditch. Besides these, you can do quizzes and play board games, which makes the café even more joyful.
Even the foods and drinks on the menu were inspired by Harry Potter, as all of them have a name from the book. The café also serves main courses and desserts. All of them come at a reasonable price, ranging from 500 HUF to 2000 HUF (1-5 EUR).
