Take a seat in this local classic inside the Cloth Hall and breathe the hundred-years of Kraków's highs and lows since it opened in 1910. Famous as the place where Comrade Lenin would read the papers during his visits, WWII occupation later saw Noworolski become the top haunt of Nazi elites, before the family-owned business was taken away by the communist authorities, only to be returned in 1991. Things have changed little in terms of style and service since then, making Noworolski a creaky throwback favoured today by well-dressed locals in the autumn of their years, but the exquisite art nouveau interiors by Józef Mehoffer are among the most decadent in town and well worth a look. With live piano and a delightful market square patio, you can find cheaper and better coffee, but it won't be served against such an atmospheric backdrop.
