Breakfast in Kraków Old TownIf you're staying right in the Old Town there are some wonderful cafes that open early and offer proper breakfasts. Charlotte - a French bakery and cafe on picturesque Plac Szczepański - immediately jumps to mind, as does Bunkier with its enormous terrace on the Planty. Camelot also possesses a very Cracovian charm and artsy atmosphere that makes it a morning magnet. Nearby, Gossip was specifically created to fill the breakfast niche, but Wesoła Cafe and Mo-ja Cafe are probably the two best brunch spots in the Old Town; if you're the type to hashtag your food, we suggest you make the trip to one of the latter two. Although trucks making deliveries until 10:00 can kill the climate a bit, the market square is a marvellous place to enjoy the day's first meal; for breakfast directly on the Rynek, your best options are Europejska and Szara.
Breakfast in Kraków KazimierzIn Kazimierz, the adorable Ranny Ptaszek ('Early Bird') earns top billing for brunch, but note that space is extremely limited. If you can't score a seat, head to Alchemia od Kuchnia, which serves some awesome street food inspired breakfast options until 12:00. If you've missed that boat as well, you have until 13:00 to get to Moment (breakfast sets), or all day to enjoy bagel sandwiches in Bagelmama. For a true weekend brunch with friends, get yourself to Wschód, though a table may be hard to come by.
It's also worth noting that, though not in Kazimierz, Forum Przestrzenie - across the Grunwaldzki Bridge between Kaz and Podgórze - offers one of the best breakfasts in town: the mighty San Francisco, which includes sausages, bacon, a fried egg, grilled cheese sandwich, pancakes and more for under 25zł.
