This place is good, very good. They describe themselves as a French bistro/bakery but Być Może is much more than that. In a time when cafés are popping up like crazy and everything seems to have been done before, this comes as a nice breath of fresh air because... Read more

Going OutRestaurants 25 January 2014 0

As a self-confessed creature of habit, my January’s have something of a repetitive look: without fail they begin with a croaked yawn, a splash of Alka Seltzer and the steely intention to never drink again. As a rule such promises last about a week, sometimes even longer, before ending,... Read more

Varsovians are no stranger to the waffle. So it’s no surprise a café has popped up on the scene and dedicated its whole menu to the pancake that looks like it’s been walloped by a tennis racket! Whilst strolling through Old Town and soaking up the only light available... Read more

Square 5

Restaurants 11 January 2014 0

Square 5 comes as a pleasant surprise amidst the desert that is Pl. Bankowy. The intimate interiors are already visible from the street, through their floor to ceiling windows. The first thing I notice as I walk by, however, is their extensive menu, scrawled on a blackboard spanning three... Read more
Between us Bed & Breakfast
The name Between Us translates as Między Nami in Polish, and is a reference to the ground floor café that opened 19 years ago – the first cafe-restaurant-gallery to offer an alternative scene to the leftovers of communism. The café is still going strong, and the owners have also... Read more

Restaurants 17 December 2013 0

For me Saturday mornings in December conjure dread: there’s a tendency to wake up in hot sweats, panicking about the Christmas rush and longing for an alternative to that manic holiday pilgrimage to shopping malls. But after a visit to Targ Śniadaniowy I feel all that is about to... Read more
Niezłe Ziółko Cafe and Deli
After a dramatic period of openings and closings on Krucza the past few years, it seems that the street is slowly holding fast as a culinary mainstay. All within a few blocks, one can enjoy a decent cocktail, good pizza, peruse a meat lovers menu, be part of the... Read more

Shot therapy? Step in, for that’s what’s on offer in Warsaw’s strangest launch for quite some time. While theme bars are the rage in Asia (Hitler and toilets figure highly among other inappropriate motifs), in Poland they’ve never really taken off – and that’s fine with me. I like... Read more

The Harvest

Restaurants 4 November 2013 0

If one was to pen a history of fine dining in Warsaw it would make a light read. With a few notable exceptions, in the twenty years that followed the changes of ’89, it meant bow-tied waiters and platters of game. It meant men with moustaches and hunched, elf-like... Read more

***CLOSED*** A life-size cow with a menu chained around its neck stands outside as if to say: “turn back now, vegetarians.”  Looking sparky, fun and engaging the décor is composed of light woods and soft touches, not to mention blackboard slogans such as ‘Eat Meat’ and ‘Love Bacon’. The... Read more
