My’o’my is easy to miss and quite easy to dismiss but you’ll be passing up quite a good opportunity to keep your taste buds happy should you do so. The space may be small but its kitchen is mighty and contributes to a perfect lunch-time break. It churns out tortillas stuffed to overflowing with all sorts of yummy fillings, and the same goes for their burgers… except they’re not so typical here, so don’t be surprised to find yours arriving on a bagel! Their smooth and creamy soup creations and spice teas come recommended for the colder months. It’s these simple yet satisfying food choices that definitely give my’o’my an extra dimension that most cafes in Warsaw lack.
Recently, we’ve discovered that behind most of the mouth-watering tarts and other baked goods that we always see in Warsaw’s cafes stands one brave girl – Zofia Różycka. Finally, my questions as to why they always look equally appetizing, no matter the place, have been answered. My’o’my is no worse off, Zofia is connected to them in two ways: through the oven and through her pen – her signature style can be recognized in the logo and the artful menus.
It’s easily the coziest place around, slightly rustic in design, with flower-patterned pillows, wooden panels painted white and winding stairs that lead to a charming second floor. Be sure to head upstairs if you’re looking for more privacy (an escape from the young and hip crowd that has chosen m’o’m as their go-to everything place – and justly so)… or if you happen to come in with a larger group of friends as the bottom floor may feel slightly claustrophobic.
