We visited Cafe Camelot twice -- once for an al fresco nightcap, once for a spontaneous mid-morning snack. Though we enjoyed it on both occasions, the morning was a MUCH more pleasant time: much less crowded, much more peaceful, and much better service.
When we stopped by for dessert on a weeknight, we had some fanatastic home brewed iced tea with fruit slices -- probably the tastiest iced tea we've ever had -- but a so-so cheesecake that was perfectly okay but a bit too plain for our tastes. The street scene in the area was a steady distraction -- motor scooters zoomed by fairly often, and at a very lively bar just two doors away, lots of drinkers, smokers, and boisterous groups carried on constantly. With sidewalk tables packed in tightly at the cafe, it wasn't exactly a relaxed way to end the night.
In contrast, our visit on a weekday morning was delightful -- the nighttime crowds were gone, gentle music played inside, and we had a chance to sample the friendly atmosphere featuring mismatched chairs and tables, folk art on the wall, wall sconces, and other informal furnishings. The food and service were much better at that time of day, too -- our friendly server brought out some top notch cafe macchiatto and a gorgeous trio of mini croissants with blueberries and raspberries and strawberry jam almost right away.
If our experiences were an indicator, Cafe Camelot may be better at night for people who like crowds and noise and loud banter but better on a weekday morning for people looking for a bit of peace and quiet. In either case, we'd probably check this out again if we were back in Krakow. It's a fun place!
