I don;t think I'd be scoffing at that soul for apple strudel exchange, Mr. S. Based on your deeply disturbing postings I think your soul may be a bit low on the exchange rate scale and that famous Hungarian apple strudel always ranks high in the taste dept. And the Devil may throw in an airport transfer?
Take the offer. Quick.


I always had a sort of half-disgusted fondness for the word Budapest. Especially when certain people pronouce it "Budapescht." You know, with saliva carefully resting under the tongue.


places to exchange above mentioned soul against desserts hardly pronounceable are:

Gerbeaud Cukrászda
Vörösmarty tér 7
(Inner Pest, metro: Vörösmarty tér)
Ruszwurm Cukrászda
Szentháromság utca 7
(Castle Hill, Buda, Right Bank, funicular: from Clark Ádám tér to Castle Hill)

rumour is they have bouncers to deal with customers will refuse to leave, an affliction that strikes many on their first visit.

a Strudel Temple of sorts is

Fiori (Inner Pest)
V. Oktober 6 út 6
metro: Vörösmarty tér
the ceremony is officiated continuously and in the open.

for a glimpse of what an imperial Café used to look like, one could stop at the

Central Kávéház
(Inner Pest, Left Bank)
V. Károlyi Mihály út 9
metro: Ferenciek tér
Café New York (Elizabeth Town)
VII. Erzsébet körút 9-11
metro: Blaha Lujza tér

here there are hopes the devils of the gulyás will be kind to you, sir.
