I just like everything about this place, no matter who I come here with, and whether it's just a coffee, snack or the whole meal, it is always fresh, delicious and beautifully presented. The staff are attentive and most of them are friendly. When I visited Bydgoszcz with my family, this was the only "grownup" restaurant, where you could bring... More

This is a very good place for breakfast. There is a choice of sets, eggs and sandwiches. Coffee is good and you can order fresh juice as well. Everything is tasty and nicely served. Prices are OK.

The British and indeed most other countries i've visited don't do cafes like the polish. You can get just about anything sweet, at a good price and to an exceptionally high standard. I would give this 6 out of 5 if I could, as the many Cukiernia Sowa in Bydgoszcz are particularly excellent. We visited the Sowa in Focus Park,... More

Sowa is a big name in Bydgoszcz having established a very modern and high quality eaterie in the centre of Bydgoszcz. Many years ago when I visited Bydgoszcz he was just a high quality pastry maker and than he become a restaurateur opening this huge place in Stary Rynek. This is the place where I go at least a few... More

This is a very nice, busy and friendly grand-cafe, the food is tasty and there is a wide selection, it's great value-for-money, and the location is great.... Easy going for dinner or lunch on the middle of the week.

I visit Bydgoszcz once or twice a year and every trip includes at least one visit to Sowa, although to be honest it's most often to one of the cafés rather than the main restaurant. Sowa cafés can be relied on for great coffee, excellent traditional polish cakes and pastries and delicious ice creams. I always visit the branch in... More
