I come here on regular basis, the atmosphere, the food, the service, all of this contributes to a very pleasant experience. If you're in Krakow, for any reason, don't miss it!

Came across this cafe by chance. Situated a small square near the palace of fine arts. Has an excellent range of homemade soups, sandwiches, paninis, etc. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Food looked and tasted fantastic! Reasonably priced too. Highly recommend!!!

Had a few breakfast here - great homemade breads, pastries and granola. On a weekend it gets busy within 10 minutes of opening, but there is lot's more seating downstairs if you don't mind that.
