Description: Retro is a café with a soul, located in the Old Town of Gdansk and offering healthy, quality, home-made low-sugar cakes. We bake with real butter, locally sourced honey and free-range eggs. We use seasonal and local ingredients whenever possible. We offer loose leaf teas (over 30 kinds), excellent coffees, Italian hot chocolate and cocktails inspired by the 1930s and '40s. We serve dessert wines and several kinds of Polish beer. Retro's interior is warm and inviting from the wood floor and paneling through the old photographs on the walls to the quiet background music.

Reviewed January 24, 2013

Great place to start the day... coffee is great, the stuff is friendly and they speak good English. If you have a chance, try their pumpkin cake, it's delicious... Old items in the decoration are supposed to be cosy.
