Take a look at what’s around Warsaw’s most sensational plac.
Cafe Próżna (Próżna 12) The overdue renovation of the building might make for a loud and dusty afternoon coffee, but Próżna remains just about the cutest café for miles. Beautiful soups and an intensely artistic, almost Krakowian spirit.
Fotka (Pl. Grzybowski 2) With none of the airs and graces of neighboring spots, Fotka’s genius lies in its simplicity. A fun, familiar atmosphere in this café, great cakes, some niche beers and a photographic theme. Kosher Shop & Falafel Stand (Twarda 6) Snuck to the side of the synagogue, stock up on Kosher produce from the friendly store, before hitting up the falafel tent for, aside from the obvious, kosher ice cream.
Mercato (Próżna 7) A restaurant / delicatessen hybrid with a casual after-work buzz and a heavy Italian slant. The atmosphere of orchestrated chaos lends a lively atmosphere that’s tough to trump.
Pardon To, Tu (Pl. Grzybowski 12/16) Bar, concert space, home of Ykos (the pub dog) and purveyors of our favorite bruschetta anywhere in Warsaw – Pardon To, Tu is the central nexus of the local area.
Strefa (Próżna 9) Don’t, whatever you do, wear white – they’ll never see you. A pristine design, upmarket crowd, beautiful cocktails and – above all – the cooking of Jarosław Walczyk make Strefa a standout.
