a bit about Anett

What are you working on these days?

I’m the Marketing Director of a Hungarian online magazine called Uptostyle, a part-time photographer and barista in a lovely cafe.

What drives you mad these days?

Summer came too early and spring disappeared.

What makes you happy?

Little things, like making pretty latte art, waking up at 10 am or smiling people on the bus.

When was the last time you cried?

Last week (boarding a short flight with my brother).

What’s your latest musical obsession?

RHODES, Kodaline, Hillsong United, Mister and Mississippi.

What was the last movie you watched? Was it any good?

Batman vs. Superman. No. No. No. The only thing I loved was Clark’s glasses.

When it’s time for a new wardrobe, where do you go?

I love really different kinds of shops. If I want something basic and not that pricey, I usually go to Zara or Mango. But if I want some designer stuff, I visit Nanushka at Fashion Street.

What’s your go-to café in Budapest?

That’s a difficult decision. Probably I should say the cafe where I work, but no. Sorry Boss. My favourite is Fekete Cafe, a lovely place with professional baristas and good cookies.

What’s your favorite street or neighborhood to wander through?

Andrássy street is absolutely gorgeous, I enjoy every minute when I’m walking there.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in Budapest but never actually do?

Skating with an ice cream in my hand.

Who’s your hero (dead or alive) and where would you take them to show them a good time?

I don’t say that he is my hero, but Bear Grylls is a remarkable person because of his willing power. I would take him to Disznótoros, a restaurant full of meat. I’m sure he likes meat.

If it’s been raining outside for days and you’re sick of staying in – where would you go?

In a cozy cafe, like My Little Melbourne Cafe. It calms me to drink a cup of warm coffee, while watching the rain.

What’s that place in Budapest you feel like only you know about?

Szabó Ervin library. Obviously, it’s popular, but on the 4th floor there is only a few people and it’s absolutely stunning.

If tomorrow was your last day in Budapest before you left for good, how and where would you spend it?

I would start my day at Zoska, it’s the perfect place to have a delicious breakfast. Then grab a coffee to have enough energy and go up to the Normafa to have a long walk with stunning view. At the evening Király utca and its neighbourhood have a really great feeling, so I would have a dinner with my friends and the Hummus Bar.

Given the choice, mayor of which neighborhood would you be?

I would be at district 5, because of Kálvin square. There’s the best bagel in town.

What’s the spot in Budapest you wouldn’t be caught dead in?

At popular pubs where people are drunk and get crazy.

You’ve just received the best news ever. Where would you go to celebrate and with whom?

I would celebrate it with my boyfriend at our favourite restaurant, Castro, where we will have the best chicken salad ever.

What’s the thing you love doing that isn’t work, relationship or family related?

I love having long baths while reading books.

When you feel like a night out, what’s your go-to place and why?

AnKert is a pub in the centre of the city with delicious drinks and potato chips. It’s a huge place, the heart of many cultural events. I love the milieu of it, perfect place to have a night out with friends.
