Service was great, usually there isn't a long line of people and coffee is made pretty fast. I mostly went there to study, there is a lot of places to sit, they also have second floor. There is many students studying and it is pretty quite there, which I liked the most. Prices are affordable and they make great coffee.... More

Went here for hot chocolate and cake as staying at nearby hotel and just wanted a walk out. Wish we hadn't! Cold hot chocolate and not nice muffins. The only plus thing was a lovely young waitress who came to clear away our cups and (paper) plates. I'd give this one a miss next time.

Decided to support the local chain rather than Barstucks. Nice coffee, well served and cheap. Great staff. Love the 70s looking logo and bought some mugs to take home.

Old, worn & torn disgusting couches with stains on them in the upstairs area. The place is nice and big with a good atmosphere. Sometimes it is so full of students that it's impossible to find a seat. Great for young students but not so great for people who want a classier experience. The cappuccino is very nice

Guess you know you are in trouble when ordering an americano and they ask you what size?? And then they serve you some weak dishwasher water without ever touching an actual espresso machine :(

I've been there a couple of times in the last two months. It's an ideal place for business meeting, however, there are sometimes no free tables in the evenings.

before going to national museum, I dropped by here for my breakfast.... after days of localized western breakfast, at least breakfast here is mostly alike to what I have everyday. bagels here is nice. but coffee is just okay.. so no complain.. I would say here the food is average, but extra credits to the Internet here... fast and stable..

The hot chocolate is a must have! It's so cheap and tastes so lovely! I've been having the Nutella muffins and they're the best out of them all (personally). This is a great place to stop for a chat and grab a coffee!

The california coffee is so beautiful place but the water's is not so kind because I saw they were so tired! Why have they work such a lot when if they work a litle bit fewer than they will be more kind with the guest! Hey Boss!

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.
