We was here with husband in July, took Żurek with eggs, pork chop, schab and fried potatoes. The dishes are really huge, delicious and cheap in comparison with other cafes in the Old Town. Also I like the interior- it is home-like

We found it through a bad review of a different restaurant. Didn't expect much, but we were surprised by the cheap prices and large meals! We bought cold beet soup, potatoes, golonka (pork chop) and chicken liver.

You look at the menu, pick your meal and go up to the counter to get it. And order you drink here. Simple, tasty, homemade Polish food. We had pork with potatoes and a really lovely cabbage side. Two meals and two beers for under...More

If you want to try real polish food (without french fries) this is the place. Self serving and whiteout any waiting! The cabbage is great and we loved it!
