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.

“Amazing breakfast & cakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2013

Retro Café was a place me and my girlfriend visited on our first morning in Gdansk and nothing after could not beat that experience. We both agreed that their mysli/granola was the best we've maybe ever had. Retros cakes were also amazing and staff spoke good English. Moody and romantic place that may not be the best place for large groups and families but for a smallbunch of friends an couples like us perfect investment. Something that pictures our love for Retro is that we were close to miss our plane 'cause we wanted to go for one more piece of cake before saing goodbye to Poland.

“Very special cafe”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

If you like a proper cup of coffee and interesting, not usual and ordinary desserts, you definitely should visit Retro Cafe. Cozy interior, perfect service, good cakes and coffee - all can be found there. Although the level of prices is a bit above Gdansk Old Town average. But the place is worth it!

“my new favorite cafe in gdansk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013 via mobile

i went to the cafe but felt immediately at home after settled into a comfortable chair. nice interior, good cakes. a glass of chadonnay was probably not the best but still good (i was often dissappointed at wine in polish restaurants.) this is my new favorite cafe in gdansk. i will go back and recommend it to anyone who wants to relax with a cup of coffee.

“Perfect coffee, tasty cakes and good service. What else do you need?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

Although it is placed in a really touristice environment, this cute cafe is worth a visit and helps you to relax and gain energy for your further trip. Very good quality coffee and delicious cakes, combined with professional service made it the best cafe in town we found so far.
