Milkbar Tomasza

  ul. Św. Tomasza 24 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 422 17 06     more than a year ago

An Irishman's upgrade of the classic Polish cafeteria, Tom - the owner and chef - has created a popular, foreign-friendly 'Milk Bar' that offers tasty budget Polish slow food in clean, modern surroundings with a pleasant atmosphere (thus disqualifying it outright from being considered a proper milk bar). Hardly a reinvention of local cuisine, Milk Bar pays proper respect to its culinary roots (take our milky pickle soup with rice for example - only a Polish mind could conceive such a thing), swapping slippered grannies for a staff of cute students and institutional interiors for a bit of colour and wall-length windows. The daily special (18zł) includes soup and entree and gives you three options of each to choose from, or select from the set chalkboard menu of pierogi, potato pancakes, crepes, bagels and breakfast options. Comfort, cleanliness and taste are worth the extra 5zł in our opinion.

We found this place after watching Great Railway Journeys by Portillo. It was excellent, clean surroundings excellent food reminded me of the Polish food my father used to make for us.
What a gem ! Absolutely loved this place, superb food in lovely surroundings,friendly staff, great music and the best beetroot-soup! we ended up going back every day and always enjoyed it.Hope to return with my family next time.

A spotlessly clean reinvention of a communist-era Milk Bar. The four of us enjoyed breakfast here both mornings we were in Krakow. Scrambled eggs with bacon, toast, coffee and orange juice for about 20 zlotys per head. Highly recommended. Also serves cheap meals throughout the day and evening.

Great place to go for a quick bite, clean good service and Tom was helpful, I would recomend this place for a cheap alternative to spending a small fortune in some other places for a light bit to eat..

This very bad food.

We have just returned from a trip to Poland where we spent a few days in Krakow. We had breakfast here one morning and dinner one evening. It was delicious. I would agree completely, this place is great, the food is fantastic and the place is spotless. Dont miss out on it if you are in krakow, its just off a side street from the main square.

An excellent place to try Polish food. The potato pancakes with goulash was excellent and for 5 euro (including kompot - a fruit drink) also excellent value. The owner used to have Nic Nowego and the loss of that to greedy landlords is something that I will regret forever. While this is not a replacement and there is no alcohol licence, the food hits the same high standards of his previous venture. I would thoroughly recommend it.
