California Coffee Company’s second café is mainly visited by Hungarian and foreign students studying at universities nearby. They like coming to us, as they can learn in a good mood here, enjoying an aromatic coffee or meeting their friends and can join the Internet via free Wi-Fi at any time. The comfortable armchairs provide ideal places for dates or meeting friends and the rear tables offer a great opportunity to have a sandwich or coffee while working on your laptop.
