    neither expensive nor cheap

    Hello,

    I'm wondering what adjective should I use if I need to describe a place (cafe, restaurant, hairdresser's etc) being neither too expensive nor cheap. Of course, I can say something like "with moderate / affordable prices", but I'd like to use an adjective.

    Is 'budget-friendly" a good (and understandable) one?
    What about 'moderately/reasonably/affordably priced"?
    Are there any other good words?

    Thank you in advance.

    Re: neither expensive nor cheap

    To me, "budget friendly" is a euphamism for "cheap."

    I think moderately priced or reasonably prices both work.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
