Stumbled on to this place in Warsaw old Town when frantically looking for a Wifi / lunch sort-of-place between meetings. This cafe is at the front of the building, I think the restaurant itself extends into some impressive rooms towards the back – I believe the venue is used for various cultural/musical initiatives which gives the place this air respectability and high-browedness.
Freta is really oldy-worldly, serene, the food is good and the space has this “time stood still” kind of feeling.
Zurek starowiejski Soup (potatoes, Polish sausage, egg, sourcream in photo)
Wild mushroom Soup
Pierogi (Dumplings here with potatoes and cottage cheese inside)
This was my first ever Zurek, so I guess I can’t compare it to other Zureks – all I know is that this soup had so much flavour and was massively delicious, especially with the touch of sour cream – I’m a Fan. Pierogi were delicious as was everything else. The Staff were really helpfull and attentive and the value for money is really impressive too. Highly recommended.
