Purveying 'Hot Doughnuts' (as the name translates), pączki are so popular in PL that they have their own holiday, but this place keeps them coming fresh out of the oven every day of the year. Essentially a dense, deep-fried jelly doughnut, this sidewalk hatch on the Old Town's popular Szewska Street offers about a dozen different flavours of marmalade filling, including traditional rose jam, chocolate-cherry, raspberry, chocolate pudding, plum, pear, toffee, vanilla, sweet cheese and more. Though the prices are a bit rich at 4zł each, this place knows what it's doing and you simply won't find a better, fresher pastry. When it comes to trying local foods, this is one you can easily and joyfully cross off your list. If pączki aren't to your taste they now offer crepes, bubble waffles and more.
