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!

We ate at Camelot three times - once for a lunch and twice for breakfast. Loved the decor. Tables are a bit too tiny to accommodate all the plates and glasses so you may have to stack things up. We had the pierogis which we good and tried different teas, coffees and juices, all of which were excellent. The breakfast selection was good and although the portions did not look big, they were adequate. Be careful though - when you order oat porridge, it comes out as dried oats on yoghurt - nothing is cooked. We thought the waitress made a mistake the first time but the next day, got the same thing. On the weekend, this place is packed.

This little cafe really was amazing. We went to Poland for 4 nights and 3 of the days we went to cafe Camelot simply because it was so good. The staff were very friendly, the portions are generous and there is a lot of choice for vegetarians. I would recommend the tomato, leek and onion soups, the pretzels are very generous in size and the drinks are delicious. My boyfriend tried the hot vodka and I had the mulled wine - both delicious. The atmosphere in the cafe is very quaint and lovely. I felt so comfortable and cosy there. A definite if you are visiting Krakow and a great mix of local people and tourists.

Excellent breakfast, quirky but very welcoming setting with great prices. Real mix of locals and tourists in a very central setting.

I found this little cafe at the back of my hotel - it has a lovely atmosphere. The menu selection is great - how many ways can you have mulled wine or hot chocolate....... Try the hot cherry wine with cherries - yum!
