I had my friends over for my birthday which was this past weekend and in the spirit of celebration, we decided to add a brunch date into the mix.

Originally, we all planned to eat at another place, but as the forgetful girl that I am, I didn’t reserve places and we couldn’t get any spaces. It was then a friend suggested “cinnamon” to me.
I follow their Instagram page so I already knew the place was great with great brunch choices. I’m glad I  didn’t hesitate to host my birthday brunch there.

My first impression on arriving to the café was the ambiance. I’m a sucker for small cafes with pretty, minimalistic interior and this didn’t fail to amaze me.

Menu raid :

Cinnamon has a pretty decent menu with different types of food and drinks and even combinations you may want. From sweet to savory breakfast food, you may even get confused on what to eat if you study the menu too long.

Heck, we were all confused and changed our minds severally. Thankfully, the waitress was a sweetheart and was patient enough to change it as many times as we wanted.

We finally all settled on having a menu each.

As if I wasn’t already sold by the interior decor, the food was very satisfying! It was fresh from the kitchen, decently portioned and pretty delicious.

The latte was slightly cold but it’s probably because of all the confusion we went through while the barista had already made the coffee.

The orange juice was freshly made, which is a bonus because I realized that when I order orange juice in cafes, they usually turn out to be packaged juice which is poured into the glass and presented as freshly squeezed.

After the meal, it was very fun to sit and chat with my friends and take more pictures. It was a generally a cozy and fulfilling experience.

All together, the whole food cost about 20,000 Hungarian forints (about 65 euros) – of which some people may scream that its expensive but it was worth the money, and besides we did order a lot of food. I would definitely return there to have more meals.
