An Introduction: The Best Restaurants in Krakow
Good food is a big part of any holiday. When you come to Krakow, we want to make sure you taste the best. From home-cook favorites to international and exotic, Krakow has a booming culinary scene that’s sure to keep you satisfied.
Here are some of the best places:
Every good day starts with a good breakfast. And Zenit is one of the best places to get your early morning fill. The options are varied. Presently we suggest the French toast as it’s both filling and oh so delicious. Not to mention the fact that every plate comes out looking like something you’d see on Instagram. Add a great coffee and a buzzing atmosphere and you’ll probably find yourself spending a few hours here.
Ultimately if you’re looking for the best of Poland, Starka is the place to go. Just a short hop from the enchanting Corpus Christi Basilica, the restaurant serves up some of the finest staples of Polish cuisine. It includes sour rye soup, their own signature salads, pork sirloin, and some mighty fine tasting desserts.
Also, check out the homemade flavored vodkas they have if you want the night to include a bit of a buzz.
If Italian is your thing then Mamma Mia do it right. Book ahead if you want a good table as the place is often packed. That’s no surprise when you see the delicious range of pastas, pizzas and other snacks available at this place. In addition the wine list is equally as impressive. And the staff are on hand to ensure a good meal and a warm welcome to Krakow.
You can’t come to Krakow and not go for the authentic Polish milkbar experience. These were the canteens that used to feed workers day in and day out during socialist times. Think no frills surroundings and a simple-yet-tasty menu.
Today many milkbars have survived, and even thrived, sticking to the simple fair, but now attracting people from all walks of life along with plenty of tourists. Presently Milkbar Tomasza is one such place, hiding away in Krakow’s Old Town
However if you’d like to sip some fancy cocktails and take in the atmosphere around Szczepański Square, then Scandale Royal is the place for you. Other than the aforementioned beverages, the food is unpretentious and tasty (the breakfast comes particularly recommended) and the interior is cosy meets classy.
Finally, if Mediterranean is a must then check out Restauracja Pino. People rave about for its stylish comfy interior and the menu is full of tasty things like duck sous vide with sweet potato puree and ribs in tomato and honey sauce. Also being ever so slightly hip, this is also a great place to people watch the locals.
