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; grab a table on the sidewalk if you can, or downstairs if you're in a group. Camelot and their new sister venue Camelot Lulu also possess a very Cracovian charm and artsy atmosphere that make them morning magnets. Nearby, Gossip was specifically created to fill the breakfast niche, but Wesoła Cafe, NapNap Cafe and Mo-ja Cafe are probably the 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 three. For vegans, get thee to Karma on ul. Krupnicza - which also has the best coffee in town. 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 vegetarian 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, Poranki - which offers inventive sweet and savoury breakfasts, or Moment - which offers several breakfast sets; all three serve their early menus until about 13:00. If you managed to miss out there as well, 2 Okna serves until 18:00, and Bagelmama does bagel sandwiches all day. For great ambiance and stylish decor, you won't find better than Mak Bread & Coffee located in the PURO Kazimierz Hotel.
It's also worth noting that, though not in Kazimierz, Forum Przestrzenie - across the Grunwaldzki Bridge between Kaz and Podgórze - is an underrated brunch destination in the early afternoon when things are still quiet and peaceful. Choose from outstanding sweet and savoury breakfast sets for vegans and meat lovers.
