Starbucks has picked a location for its first store in Hungary – the WestEnd City Center. The big opening is scheduled for the end of May, beginning of June.
So, if you are hooked on Starbucks and have been delaying your trip to Budapest because there wasn’t one, it’s time to start packing your bags!
Update - Jun 17, 2010:
As of June 16th 2010, Starbucks Budapest is open and customers can enjoy their venti Caramel Frapuccinos in Hungary as well.
Update - Sep 19, 2010:
Only a few months ago there wasn't a single Starbucks in Hungary and now the second store is set to open soon in Budapest on the corner of Király utca and the Grand Boulevard. It looks like the first store, opened in June, is a success and I’m sure we will see even more Starbucks' in Budapest.
