Visited this place twice in two during our short visit to Krakow. The restaurant is deceptively large because of the large downstairs area. We were upstairs where the main counter was. The staff were helpful and pleasant, we wanted a snack but also to get made up sandwich to go. The food is very nice and might be considered slightly... More

Came here as we had an early day trip booked and this was one of the cafe's that opened early enough for us to go. I ordered an omelette whilst my friend ordered the charlottes breakfast with a boiled egg, we also ordered two coffees. My friend was served her bread and spreads relatively quick. Unfortunately we had both been... More

Very nice presented and atmosphere is quite pleasant. They offered a selective menu and we ordered the home made Jam and Chocolate since this is their specialty. However we noticed that the Jars used for the jam is refilled and not newly done which left us perplexed. Jars are to big to be use just once. Disappointing

We were recommended this place to eat however we were slightly disappointed. We arrived early as had been told that it does get busy although there is a lot of tables. We ordered our food and although my bread/croissants/chocolate spread/ jam arrived we waited around half an hour for a boiled egg and omelette. We were annoyed when customers who... More

It is one of the most popular places that serve French style breakfast with freshly baked Croissants, Baguettes and home-made jams and spreads. The first time I went to Charlotte was actually in Warsaw (Zbawiciela Square) a couple years ago, before I knew there was a restaurant in my own back yard. As I mentioned it is quite popular and...

Charlotte's Café/coffee shop. Everyone understands English. Always busy with locals of all ages, provides welcome respite from sightseeing. Open dawn till dusk and very welcoming. Whatever you decide on: croissant, sandwich or pastry; coffee or wine, it’s delicious! Great place to people watch: there’s a gallery over the front of the shop, a breakfast bar through the back, and a... More

There is a small enterence and huge space at downstairs. Tables are so close to eachother but atmosphere is cool. Portions are small but it is ok when you compare with prices. And taste is also ok. Around 30-35 zloty 2 person can eat and drink somethings. So i would recommend.

Super cozy! It reminds me an old bakkery, with its cool industrial style, love it. The idea of serving a basket full of bread with homemade jams and chocolate spreadings is also amazing. Only one tip: i would include a sweet-savoury option, like bread with jams and ham-cheese plate. I asked for extra ham cheese with my beeakfast with bread... More

A very trendy bakery that serves some gorgeous lunches. We enjoyed it here so much on our 4 day city break we returned for a second time before our flight home. The service is on the slow side tho if you take an hour or so for lunch I would say this is one of the best around. The croque... More
