This place was recommended by a local. Most of the folks eating there were locals as well. Wonderful Polish food, free soup with the meal, and large portions. We took home enough food for dinner the next night. They have beer on tap and in...More

As we passed by we saw locals sitting enjoying the food at this super little café. They have an English menu, but you have to ask for it at the counter. The food is basic but delicious and ‘cheap as chips’. The copious amount of...More

This place is a must! It's a hidden gem a short walk from the main square. On first glance it looks a little 'traditional' and very local, however this is all part of its charm. Food is cheap! We over ordered so we could try...More

Great value, we had 2 meals for £7 approx. It's simple Polish fare but very enjoyable. Sadly the lady taking the order is not the most cheerful.I don't think they are used to English customers as this place off the tourist trail

This is really a restaurant worth mentioning and I'd like to give it a short T/A review. We were in Krakow for three days and we ate there twice. It's just off where one of the entrances to the main square is and next to tram stops. It's where locals eat, very unpretentious, and the food is genuine Polish and very inexpensive—and delicious! There is an English menu so it's easy to choose what you want and to order it. The two times we were there, it wasn't crowded and there was no waiting. It was very peaceful and quiet and well ventilated. Well worth knowing about. There was a blog about it on your website.
