A gorgeous city with great food, awesome dessert, and a unique nightlife!
Oh Budapest! What a beautiful city with so much to see and so much to do! We were getting a little tired by this point in our trip which made it perfect timing for popping a squat with some dessert!
Gelarto Rosa 1051 Budapest, Szent István tér 3
This place is pretty touristy because it’s right next to St. Stephen’s Basilica which means it’s a perfect pit stop in the middle of your site seeing! While you can find an ice cream cone elsewhere that is probably cheaper, this place is really an experience. You choose 2, 3, or 4 flavors of ice cream or sorbet and they shape it into a rose. The ice cream is also very good quality!
Pomo D’Oro 1051 Budapest, Arany János utca 9
If you want to mix up the cuisine, try Pomo D’Oro. It has good Italian food with friendly and helpful service. I got a pizza with ham and mushrooms. While it was a little pricier than other meals we had, it was still reasonable for what you would have paid for the same meal in the US. They also offer gluten free pasta which my mom appreciated because she didn’t have to hunt for something on the menu.
