The concept known by many foodies even from Warsaw is also in Kraków! You can eat here French croque madame, croque monsieur or croissant, drink aromatic coffee, but also feel the scent of freshly baked bread. However, not only breakfasts are served here – during the evenings, you can also taste French wines & tarts. The essence of every Charlotte place? Large and comfortable common table.
17/ WITH BEAUTIFUL GARDEN / PINO Garden / Na Błoniach 7
A huge garden in the very heart of Błonia, a varied menu card, cool service and a refined restaurant interior. Looking for additional culinary attractions in Krakow, especially desserts, we asked a casual passer-by, where to eat the sweetest thing. The person directed us to PINO and… this is definitely a good recommendation. Since this place is recommended by the locals… there must be something in it!
18/ FOODTRUCKS / JUDAH SQUARE / Kazimierz
