A new year inevitably brings new cafes, bars and restaurants in Wrocław. According to the popular food blog wroclawskiejedzenie.pl, an incredible 232 venues opened in Wrocław last year.
Here's a brief list of just a few places that have opened in the last month or so:
Described as a 'roastery, coffee bar & bakery', Paloma Coffee appears to be on a mission to woo hipsters and coffee snobs to its neat interior.
The pl.Solny cafe roasts its own fresh coffee and offers countless different options and varieties, including the likes of chemex, filter and drip.
This all comes at a premium though, so expect to pay over 10zł for a coffee.
The modernisation of the pubs and restaurants on Bogusławskiego street continues with the arrival of Zawsze.
The venue serves up traditional Polish dishes at modest prices, a format that is always popular provided the food is done right.
Despite being housed in Wrocław's Galeria Italiana, Zagrycha is another new place specialising in Polish food.
The prices at Zagrycha are also noticeably cheaper than its neighbours, bringing back memories of the old Cegielnia – a venue that used to be the go-to 'bread and butter' place for locals in Galeria Italiana. A small beer is just 4zł, while snacks and meals can be had for between 8-25zł.
Just around the corner from Renoma is Tortownia, a bakery specialising in all kinds of alluring looking cakes.
If that wasn't enough for the sweet toothed Wrocławian, they also have a wide offering of macaroons.
Tu i Teraz is a breakfast and lunch venue located on Orląt Lwowskich.
Presumably aimed at a business crowd seeking for somewhere to get a bite to eat out of the office, Tu i Teraz is open from 07.30-20.00. The cafe's lunch menu changes every weekday, with a mean meal costing either 15 or 18 złoty.
Last but not least is Curry House, which has taken over the Hare Krishna restaurant on Jedności Narodowej.
The new operators of the premises also run 3 restaurants in Warsaw, all of which seem to have gone down reasonably well.
Other places worth a mention:
- The latest place to try its luck making a sustainable restaurant on the Rynek is Steak N’ Roll, which specialises in meat sandwiches.
- Another cafe to open on pl.Solny recently is Kofeina By Incognito.
- The guys behind the Indian street-food business Monster Cook have now opened Papa Chili.
- Vegan diners now have yet another option in the shape of Warzywniak, located on pl.Grunwaldzki.
