While the breakfast itself was quite good the service there is terrible. Waitress wouldn't write down our order so she asked us about it several times. I get my fried egg cold as she apparently forgot about bringing it to our table. I asked for salt few times and in the end I had to obtain it myself. I have... More

Small but a great place to spend and hour and watch the world go by. Had a croissant with almonds and apple filling - very filling.

Really nice place as you just come in the door lots of light flooding through. Unfortunately there were no seats upstairs and we had to go downstairs which was not as nice. We were a bit disappoint with the food, I had ordered the boiled egg and bread basket. The egg wasn't cooked as much as I would have liked... More

Charlotte team (3 ladies including 2 sisters) knows how to select places and specifically nice squares to install a terrace (such is the case in the 2 locations in Warsaw, as well as in Wroclaw and here in Cracow). So this Charlotte terrace is a very nice place to have your breakfast or snacks or late drinks in summer. Inside,... More

Surely most trendy breakfast place in Kraków. And rightly so. It has a great location and great atmosphere thanks to both interior concept and the staffs attitude. But what's most important the food is really good. Little overpriced (croissant costs 5 pln, whereas you pay up to 1 elsewhere ;) but in outstanding quality. Specially when fresh directly from the...

The Charlotte seems to be the top of the line hip cafe in Krakow, with high standards for food and medium-high standards for pastry. But the staff seem a bit full of themselves, the sort of kids who might be attracted to working at the coolest cafe in town. And the internet doesn't work downstairs in the main seating area....
