BUŁKĘS 1470931840_restaurant1471791072_cerveza coctail

Pulled Pork and Pancakes! If you’re still not convinced then how about local micro-brewed craft beers on tap and in bottles, prosecco cocktails and homemade cakes. Still not convinced? Come find us on their urban terrace – we’ll be digging into yet another BBQ pork, bacon and blue cheese sandwich (we’re addicted already) and washing it down with a fruity Silesian Hajer IPA.

Sauté 1470931840_restaurant

Aged beef is slowly becoming something of a trend in Poland and Saute is Kato’s first potential specialist. As soon as you walk into the modern dining room you are greeted by the sight of several slabs of beef aging peacefully in a special fridge (21-25 days!). Pair your cut of choice with a glass of wine.

8 Stolików 1470931840_restaurant

Another great southside Kato cafe and bistro offering great breakfasts and lunches and exceptional Italian coffee, wine and desserts. Cozy up to one of the eight tables (not just a gimmick) and settle into the morning paper (IYP will do too!) with an exceptional cup of joe and tuck into a savoury chorizo scramble with fresh baked bread or one of their many homemade cakes and pies.

Tramontana 1470931840_restaurant

Many locals swear by Tramontana’s Italian brick oven thin crust creations, so we put their Tutti Verde pie to the test. The atypical ingredients of beets, broccoli, pumpkin seeds, goat cheese and figs melded and melted perfectly without weighing down the delicate crust. We quickly devoured the whole pie and washed it down with some prosecco. While we aren’t quite ready to hand them the Kato pizza crown we’ll be back to try another pie very soon.

3 Siostry Bajgiel i Kawa 1470931840_restaurant

This trendy and friendly cafe makes Montreal style bagels (a bit sweeter and thicker than their NYC counterparts) and serves them in a variety of savoury sandwich form (egg and bacon, philadelphia cream cheese with salmon and arugula etc.). Even better than the food and drink is the warm atmosphere and stylish design.

Cybermachina   1471791072_cerveza coctail

Classic Nintendo characters great you as you wander wide-eyed into this neon dream gaming lounge that offers all sorts of entertainment for hardcore gamers, pinball wizards, jenga junkies and the occasional Catan cartel. Order up a craft brew on tap or out of bottle or power up on one of their signature cocktail elixirs and shots.

Królestwo (The Kingdom) 1470931840_restaurant

In just under a year this new restaurant and music venue has turned a lot of heads and made a lot of noise. You’ll want to immediately check their FB page to see what upcoming concerts are on as they regularly feature the best local, national and international touring acts and DJs. 

W Międzyczasie 1470931840_restaurantcoctail

A comfy cafe with killer coffee and cake combos that transforms into a bustling bistro and pizzeria in the afternoon and then finishing off the night as a cocktail bar and lounge. Lest we not forget they also are a top notch cake shop where you can get delicious ready made cakes or special ordered designs any day of the week.
