Krakow town centre.
We enjoyed delicious and great-value breakfasts while in Krakow. In my order of preference;
- Alchemia od Kuchny
- Wesola Café
- Moment Resto Bar & Music
We also had a fantastic dinner at Bianca, right off Krakow’s main square. All dishes were perfectly executed, but what really stole the show was their risotto with stewed beef cheeks, jerusalem artichoke puree, black truffle oil and Parmigiano Reggiano – hands down one of the best dishes I have ever tasted.
We enjoyed dinner at the traditional and highly atmospheric Pod Aniolami, which is located in the cellars of an 18th century building which hosted the workshops of Krakow’s goldsmiths for 300 years. I mainly visited to try their award-winning pierogi (the popular Polish stuffed dumplings) and they did not disappoint, although my wild boar steak was tougher than expected.
Rzeznia – Ribs on fire in Krakow serve up some solid ribs.
We also enjoyed a quick (very large) lunch at Moaburger in Krakow.
The ice cream chimney cakes from Chimney Cake Bakery in Krakow are delicious! Warning – eat these quickly!
We had to try the famous papal cake from Cukiernia Wadowice, which was surprisingly light.
There are plenty of excellent chocolatiers in Krakow to satisfy your cravings; we tried Karmello.
When in Zakopane, take the funicular up to Gubałówka Hill for a great view of the Tatras and various stalls selling food items and all kinds of other goods.
