No more Zona Taxi at Ferihegy

For quite some years Zona Taxi has taken care of transporting tourists from Budapest airport, named Ferihegy, to their respective hotels and destinations all around Hungary.

Now the time when Zona Taxi ruled the airport is over and instead Fő Taxi is doing the job. The price level remains the same and I guess there will be no big changes. One thing is though that Zona Taxi had a style, a design and a certain quality on most of their cars and im not sure if Fő Taxi can compete with that… Time will show!

Kristály confectionary: Best Confectionary

This article is a part in our “Best of Budapest“-series, currently searching for the “best confectionary in Budapest“.

Kristály confectionary

1082 Budapest, József körút. 53.

Kristály confectionary is a cosy confectionary along the Great Boulevard, located next to where the boulevard hits the Baross Utca. Here you can buy cakes from a quite rich selection, and the prices are not at all high. The interior is nice, though we did not get the very „confectionary” feeling during our visit. Anyway, this is still a confectionary where the cakes tastes good, the service is okay, and the atmosphere is just fine. Not a very touristic place, rather a place where a Hungarian would go to grab a cake and a cup of coffee.

The confectionary is open from 10:00 – 18:00 during wintertime and from 10:00 – 20:00 during summertime.

Kristály confectionary score

Price vs. quality:9/10
Total average:29/40

Comments from the jury:
“The interior was just fine and it was easy to find a free table”
“I was very satisfied with the prices”
“During summertime they have a terrace for guests outside the confectionary”

New Friday’s and Starbucks in Budapest

Last weekend a new Starbucks opened in Mammut Budapest, the nice shoppingcenter on the Buda side. That means Budapest now has two Starbucks‘ and as we all know the third will open within shortly in Király Utca.

Not long ago a new Friday’s restaurant opened as well, which means Budapest now has four Friday’s restaurant. The latest Friday’s is located at the Deak Ferenc Square, somewhere between McDonalds and Coffee heaven (former localities of Il Patio)!

Next time you long for a taste of America, you know where to go!
