“Mmm.. fascinating history but now struck by Tourist Disease?”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

Yes quite a tale… founded 1910… entertained Lenin and entourage on and off for about two years to August 1914, when (in winter) he wasn’t cavorting on the ice skating rink (thank you “Inyourpocket”!)… and local Nazis during ww2… and occupies a fine location by the Cloth Hall, opposite the famous main church (St Mary’s). But the café fare is average coffee to drink, and sugar on steroids to eat, and is expensive for Krakow.

“Perfect location to admire the Mariacki Basilica”
Reviewed June 3, 2012

This cafe is a perfect location on the Main Market Square to admire the Basilica, the ongoing market in front and the people crossing the square in all directions.

We had breakfast here on a Saturday morning and an afternoon drink another day. It is usually very crowded with tourists, but it was lovely to spend half an hour there. We didnt have high expectations on such a frequented spot, which is probably better.

The breakfast was fine, but not unforgettable (in fact the only thing I recall three weeks later is that we wanted to combine two different ingredients in an omlette, but it wasnt possible...).

This place is really for the view and to check out the locals passing in front of you. Also, it has an interesting story, which is described in the menu.

“Super location, lousy service”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

The location is about as close to ideal as you could want--It's right in the middle of Rynek Głowny, Krakow's central market square. The bored and unhelpful waitress made it clear by her passive-aggressive behavior that she'd rather be somewhere, anywhere else. It wasn't long before we felt the same.

“Past its best”
Reviewed March 14, 2012

We stopped here at the Noworolski for a hot chocolate and a cake one afternoon as a break from sightseeing. it is really well located in the centre by the Cloth Hall but its glory days are gone. Nice building and a once-grand interior now very tired. However that wouldn't be a problem as it is a great place to sit by the window and watch the world go by. However the hot chocolate was the worst we had in Krakow, and very sickly. At 12 zloty it was also more expensive than the wonderful hot chocolate we later had at Karmello on Grodzka Street on the corner with Dominikanska street.
