Chocolate Heaven!!!

We came to this original and historic E. Wedel location after having gone in in their Old Town Location. Apparently, this specific store location has been in business here for over 150 years. It’s much bigger and the lay-out is similar to Ladurée's at Champs-Élysées in Paris (if you happened to be... read more

Well, I was told about this place so much, about its heritage and quality ... regretfully it did not leave up to expectation. It is located in the very centre, which makes it convenient to pop in ... on the menu lots of things, mainly deserts . But you can have breakfast there too. Personally do not recommend... and coffee... More

After first trying Wedel chocolate in England I was delighted to discover that there are Wedel cafes spreaded around Warsaw and indeed all of Poland. I have been there twice and both times the drinks were amazing, the flavour as well as the presentation and at a fair price, the staff (even though I didn't understand them!) also seemed very...

Wedel is a famous Polish chocolate maker. On Szpitalna Street in Warsaw it has a nice shop with many delicious gift ideas and a beautiful café. There is much great stuff to try in the café -- hot chocolate is excellent, as well as many other Wedel specialties. Pralines are really worth looking over. My favorites flavors are champagne, raspberry... More

We went to this location hoping it would have better service than the one near the castle. Well, the service was much more friendly but that was it! Our party of 4 ordered 6 different things and each item came out 5-10 minutes apart! Each person was finished with their drink before the next person's drink arrived and we cancelled... More

I've been here 3 days in a row during my stay in Warsaw and this alone should be enough to say you have to try this. The place is gorgeous, the service is terrific and the food is great as well. There's also lots of choice, so even if you visit it multiple times you can always enjoy something different.... More

Whenever we bring our guests here, they are always impressed by the interior and the classical hot chocolate drink. They have packed more variations in the menu, but we always stick to the classical version. Some are surprised by how thick/dense the drink is - no liquidy hot cocoa here. You can also get cheesecakes and other Polish desserts. Wedel's... More
