Sunday Farmer's Breakfast!
Szimpla has always sought opportunities to be cosy, attractive, up-to-date and high quality, and renew from time to time, invent something new. Many of you might have heard about our Farmers' Market and Farmers' Café, where you can buy farm-to-table goods and we prepare food and drinks from products straight from farmers you can meet at the market. You might have heard about the farmers selling their high quality goods in Szimpla. Now we had the idea to bring these farmers even one step closer, and within the framework of the Sunday Market, in our Salon upstairs we offer our Szimpla brunch, where you can eat as much as you want from ingredients from our market, the highest quality farmers' cheese, mangalitza sausage, cottage cheese, honey and other delicacies. You might know Csósza Manufaktúra, who sell fresh fruit or the Nárcisz Cheese Workshop, where you can buy the best camembert, parmeggiano or mozarella types of cheese, and many other first class producers. We decided to select the best ingredients every Sunday morning for a delicious brunch, where you can eat as much as you wish with muesli, organic fruit juices, home-made cocoa, tea specialities and coffee. The brunch is open from 9 A.M. to noon, where Andi Béres and Dániel Orbán offers you the best Szimpla Brunch, the best products of our farmers' market on the first floor of Szimpla Kert, in our Salon.
