Poznań, a city on the Warta river in Western Poland, is famous for good universities and colourful Old Town. However, Poznań has some pretty dope restaurants, bistros and cafes which make the city extra attractive.
Here are top five places where you can try some of Poznań’s first-rate delicacies!
Situated in a townhouse on Roosevelta street, only few steps away from the Most Teatralny tram station, Sweet Surrender definitely isn’t your ordinary cafe! Decorated in a living room style, with old fashioned furniture and comfortable sofas and chairs, this cafe has a family-like atmosphere. All sweets are homemade, made and baked in the cafe, sometimes even before your eyes. Besides delicious cookies and cakes, they also have sandwiches, tortillas and salads in their offer. Small tip: try the blondies, you won’t regret it!
You can meet your family and friends here, or bring your laptop for a work session – you will feel like at home, I promise!
Różove, situated near Stary Rynek – Poznań Old Town – has a very pink look at the world! Make yourself comfortable on one of those wonderfully colourful chairs of theirs and watch them place your order before your eyes. They have an open kitchen, so you can observe the employees stir, knead, cook and bake various delicacies for the entire time you’re there. Their dishes are homemade, healthy, fresh and sometimes even gluten-free.
The walls are decorated with wooden shelves full of authentic gifts you can purchase in the cafe.
This is one of those places you will definitely have to come back to, because trying only one cake isn’t an option. I recommend you start with a fruit cake – that’s going to open your appetite right up!
Lavenda, a nicely decorated cafe that resembles a secret garden in the middle of the city, with tasty and fresh dishes. And while they have some pretty nice breakfast/lunch/dinner options, both vegetarian and vegan ones included, their delicacies are to die for! Choose between one of their homemade cakes or a delicious crumble – yum!
Stop by this beautiful cafe, situated near Stary Rynek, with your family, friends or alone – Lavenda makes for a lovely working space.
Restaurants Weranda is a family of three – Weranda Caffe, Zielona Weranda and Weranda lunch & wine, scattered around the town. The inside of Weranda is decorated in patio style, or a backyard, giving the place a somewhat rustic atmosphere. This hidden oasis of peace and greenery champions in various main and side dishes, however, their meringue cake isn’t something you should skip out on!
A super chill place near Stary Rynek where you can enjoy some quality time with your friends. You can even choose to take a seat on the floor on one of the comfortable cushions. Cacao Republika is ideal for coffee lovers who have a sweet tooth as well – you should try their chocolate cake, it’s to die for!
