Quality of food and service was ok but the place is rather pricy. There are many other options around which are at least as good if not better.

I ordered an omelette thinking it would be small but it was a monster and pretty tasty too. I will come here again and try all the other items. It's nice to sit outside and watch the world go by but the road is noisy

Szpilka is a a pretty standard bisro. The kitchen serves some easy food from sandwitches and salads to chicken and vegetables, while at the bar you can order anything from coffee to beer to cocktails. The service is pretty friendly and speaks English. In the summer there is a garden, but it is placed next to a pretty busy street.

This was my go to option for breakfast since the waiters spoke english and have many options. The bread was hard for me (my preference)

There was a party, all night long party. And what usually happen after is that you're hungry! :-) At 4.30am we went to Szpilka hoping to have some breakfast. Those guys made the best scrambled eggs I ever had in my life! And all this at 4am :-) I know nothing about interior but staff was really nice, fully understanding... More

Had a morning to kill after long-haul bus from Vilnius, was pretty sleepy and hungry for food and a resting place before departing again for Modlin airport. I found this cafe on Tripadvisor (thanks) because its opened 24 hours. When I arrived at 6:45am there were customers drinking beer still; the waitress said they were closing at 7am for cleaning,...

we usually have breakfast there. the variety of menu and a swift service is highly appreciated by me in such venues. Since the place is open 24/7 often we eat next to people who are enjoying their after after party and that is a nuisance for sober people. Anyway I recommend the place 100%!

Szpilka was a hit several years ago when it was new and fashionable and had little competition in Warsaw. But those times are gone and they should try harder to make it special. The location is superb in the posh Pl. Trzech Krzyży and it's still a reliable place for lunch and breakfast, if well pricey. But for dinner? Unimpressive... More
