Nice selection of soups, dumplings and other local homemade fare in a canteen type environment. I had bigos, the wife had a beetroot soup (not bortsch). Then we shared a plate of pierogi. All told it came to about PLN25. Brilliant value.

Visit this place if you want real Polish, hearty food. Borscht was really filling and the dumplings with goulash really nice. Very cheap and keeps you filled for the day.
