Animal lovers usually spend their time in a new city visiting zoos and natural history museums, but not in Budapest. The Hungarian capital is home to several animal-themed cafés where you can interact with or bring your own animals, and these three are worth a moment of your time.

Cat Café

One of the most popular themed cafés in Budapest, this purrfect, cozy spot is located just a short walk away from St. Stephen’s Basilica. It’s the best place in the entire city to have a warm cup of coffee or tea with adorable kitties by your side. You can also order dessert and buy a wide range of cat-themed souvenirs.

Zoo Café

Cat cafés are pretty common and pretty much every major city has one these days, so coffee shop owners in Budapest decided to up their game. The Hungarian capital is also home to Zoo Café, which houses all sorts of different animals, from rabbits and hamsters to lizards and snakes.

Dzsungel Café and Restaurant

This quirky café in Budapest is more jungle-themed than animal-themed, but that shouldn’t stop you from giving it a shot. In addition to delicious foods on its menu, this café will win you over with its tropical setting and countless aquariums it’s filled with.
