Popped in for a hot chocolate on a Saturday afternoon. It has a deceptively large seating area inside downstairs with a charming interior design. Great service. Great prices.

We came in here when wet in Rynek Glowny and had good service. We had Tea, Pepsi Max and Donuts. Worth a visit when in the square.

Stopped off on our first night for beer and cocktails on our 1st night and ended up back every night we were in Krakow. Friendly staff and tasty desserts. Loved it.

To get out of the rain, we popped into this bar and was welcomed by the staff. We ordered a Blackberry Punch - delicious and a local beer, sadly not so good. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. But the sun came back out and we...headed back to the square!More

We came here twice during our visit as the cocktails were reasonably priced, especially for the central location, and very tasty. Highly recommend the pornstar martini. Waitresses both times were very nice. Lots of cakes and ice cream on offer too.

Cool....quite literally. The temperature outside was mid-upper 30s C! This is a cafe and cocktail bar that you pass through as you're leaving the Rynek Underground Museum which lies beneath the central square. The cafe also has a presence at ground level. The underground part...consists of a series of large brick vaulted alcoves amply supplied with super-comfortable easy chairs and sofas. The music....like the temperature...was cool and relaxing. Service was perhaps a little slow (how can they keep an eye on all of these hidden spaces?), but very friendly ,swift and sophisticated once you'd been spotted. It's a pity that they really only serve coffee, tea, cakes (which looked fabulous) and cocktails as it would also be a a great place for a wider range of light meals - but we had a very relaxing peppermint tea there after a visit to the museum. Didn't want to leave!More

The service is honestly the worst we received in Krakow! I have never in my life experienced such slow service and to say the staff were rude would be an understatement. Avoid! There are many lovely places to drink/eat in the market square don’t waste...your time waiting over 20 minutes for your order to be taken and to be served by obnoxious staff.More

After a cold lunch on the Market Square, we wanted a piping hot coffee or hot chocolate. Found this lovely cafe/cocktail bar on the West side of the Cloth Hall. Go in and follow stairs down to basement and settle down in some comfy chairs....Great menu, superb cocktails. Nice and peaceful, as out of the way, but with cool music playing that does not hinder conversation. There is a side room that can be hired exclusively. They do also serve food, but we did not eat here. Added bonus - follow the corridor past the toilets and arrive at the entrance to the wonderful Rynek Underground museum, showing the amazing finds from the excavations of the Market Square.More
