There are more and more hotels in Budapest that have a lot to offer not only to travelers but also to locals. Kempinski Hotel Corvinus Budapest is a great example with the culinary offerings at its ÉS and NOBU restaurants and with its signature brunch called the Benediction.
This brunch, available on Saturdays and Sundays at the Living Room, a stylish area that opens from the lobby, is an excellent option for those who are looking for a great culinary experience without the formal restaurant setting. After all, brunches are all about weekends and a slower pace, so the comfortable armchairs and couches will help you relax and focus on the exciting flavors.
The menu has a great selection of foods and the portions are not too big, so you can easily explore the different dishes, including salmon, oyster, or wiener schnitzel. However, the most exciting part of the menu is definitely the eggs benedict with no less than 7 different versions, all coming with the most perfect looking poached eggs. If you’re looking for a lighter version, go for the the one called Spring Garden, but if you want something more filling, then you’ll love the Debreceni.

Dessert on this brunch is a must, and luckily, the menu offers a great variety of both Hungarian and traditional American options, such as the Somlói (of course, with a twist) as well as waffles and pancakes. Check out our photos below of the Kempinksi Benediction Brunch.
