Volt Egyszer

“Volt egyszer” (literally meaning “Once Upon”) is Debrecen’s first take-away café, opened in the vicinity of the Reformed Great Church. Guests sitting behind the two huge windows of the café on Piac Street will have an excellent view of the continuously evolving city, including the ambient atmosphere of the Christmas market in the winter. The choice of name is not accidental, as the proprietors would like to bring back the friendly atmosphere, intimacy and attentive service of old cafés, while putting it in the context of our fast-paced world today. Accordingly, the store was designed with coffee lovers asking for their favourite beverage “to go” in a paper cup in mind, but of course, they also thought of those who would prefer to enjoy their coffee there, on one of the 25 chairs. “Volt Egyszer” café is the perfect choice for anyone looking for a venue for meetings, company events, birthdays, a chat after theater, or just sitting down somewhere nice for a cup of coffee.


What could be a better break during long sightseeing tours than a refreshing coffee or some delicious cake? There are many ambient cafes, pastry shops, and confectioneries in Debrecen, beckoning visitors to relax, engage in intimate conversations, or just enjoy “la dolce vita”. In addition to the famous "kurtosh kalach" (chimney cake), a registered Hungaricum, which is a cherished delicacy in Szeklerland, Transylvania and Hungary, in the local confectioneries and pastry shops you can also try one of the home-style stretched strudels, which has close links to the Hajdú-Bihar county and especially the Hajdúság region, or the "country's cake", selected from several contestants each year.
