Even though the place is always full of people, there’s a very cosy, homely feel about the atmosphere of Charlotte. The breakfast options are fantastic, but I can also recommend visiting the place at night for a glass of wine and a fromage selection -...More

Don't think so, unless you go for something like granola. However, we passed several vegan speciality restaurants during our stay in Krakow. I believe one sells vegan pancakes.
