El Krepel

Going Out 15 April 2018 0

Warsaw’s always had a sweet tooth, the difference being that it’s only in the past few years that it’s really embraced desserts as something to be placed on a pretty little pedestal and treated with awe. El Krepel does just that, presenting a range of elegant temptations lined up...
Labour Cafe

Labour Cafe

Going Out 14 April 2018 0

Set inside one of the concrete towers at the top of Tamka, Labour Café’s clattery door crashes open onto a busy space that sets bare raw materials of steel, wood, concrete and brick against lashings of plant life and bursts of poster art. Crowded with creative types chatting to...

Stor

Going Out 30 March 2018 0

Sourcing their coffee from revered roasters such as Berlin’s Bonanza and Stockholm’s Drop Coffee, Stor have grown to become a giant presence on Warsaw’s café map. Visitors bask in natural light amid outbreaks of greenery and quirky design touches: time runs away here and before you know it hours...
Cophi

Cophi

Going Out 13 March 2018 0

So small is Cophi that you get the idea you could scoop it into the palm of your hand. The condensed size adds to the allure of being somewhere special, and indeed you are: everything here feels perfectly executed. Cophi  ul. Hoża 58/60, tel. 513 422 908, open 7:30-20:00; Sat-Sun 10:00-17:00
Forum

Forum

Going Out 19 February 2018 0

Blink and you’ll miss it – set through an inconspicuous doorway, Forum reveals itself as a dark, narrow space with a long counter in the middle and a smattering of seats usually occupied by cool looking design types. The big secret is seasonal, specialty coffees sourced from top European...
Resort

Resort

Going Out 6 October 2017 0

Originally known for their OTT recycling motif (shopping trolleys repurposed as seats, street signs as tables…), Resort have pared the design down replacing the old junk with a cool, caramel-colored look high on wood, plants and discreet retro accents. Craft beer, eco-friendly bites, clever cocktails and quality coffee contribute...

Coffee Desk

Going Out 5 October 2017 0

With Poznanska having reached critical mass, Wilcza now finds itself acting as a collection vessel catching the overspill. Actually, that’s a disservice. An attraction on it’s own merits, it’s a street that’s gathering steam in terms of ‘see and be seen’. Aiding that overall vibe is Coffee Desk, a...

Blog 10 September 2017 0

No blog for three weeks!? Sorry, it’s called being busy! Not too busy, however, to forget to take pics of the places I’ve visited – below, the highs (and lows) of those past missing weeks: Considerably more casual than their other ventures, the new Le Cedre Lounge has made a...
Etno

Etno

Reviews 7 August 2017 0

Having already made a big splash in Wrocław, Etno have found themselves surfacing in Warsaw with something of a reputation to uphold. This they do successfully thanks to pure Arabica sourced from the highlands of Abyssinia. Yet while Ethiopian coffee is perhaps the most prominent, the coffee of Kenya,...

Bily Konicek

Restaurants 14 July 2017 0

The State Ethnographic Museum is the rather unlikely setting for this cafe, a narrow space that announces itself in a jolt of color. Doubling up as a quirky gift store, the cafe arm of Bily makes a big deal of shining a spotlight on local / Polish brands, produce...
