The Best Pierogi in Krakow

St Mary's Basillica, Krakow

St Mary’s Basillica, Krakow 

There is plenty of opportunity to stuff yourself silly with pierogi and other Polish delights while staying in Krakow, however, if you want a truly home-cooked meal then you need to visit Kawiarnia “Hamlet”, Ul. Miodowa 9, 31-055 Krakow.  This rustic little place is filled with dark wooden tables, crochet tablecloths and cumbersome dressers, making you feel as if you are back in the home of your old Polish Babcia (Grandmother).

A veritable feast can be enjoyed at this small cafe/restaurant.  The meat pierogi and the Ruskie (cheese) pierogi (9 zloty for one portion), sprinkled with fried onions, are the most delicious I have ever consumed.  The restaurant is also famed for its soups which will warm your cockles on a chilly spring evening.  The best bit?  Your waitress and chef is indeed a Polish Grandmother.

Kawiarnia “Hamlet”, 31-055 Krakow, Ul Miodowa 9.

Tel: (4812) 422-12-11

For those living in Krakow it might be handy to know, Kawiarnia “Hamlet” also provide a catering service for parties and events.
