The definitive local dining experience. Join the queue and order big plates of piping hot food dished up from metal containers, before bussing your dishes to the wash-up window. Choose from the likes of cutlets with mashed potatoes, spinach or beet salad sides, soups, pierogi and other timeless classics. Far better than it looks or sounds, Polakowski is an editorial fave. Essentially an upmarket milk bar this place has gone the extra yard (or justified the extra złoty) by adding a toilet and English language menu. Also at ul. Mogilska 35 and in shopping malls M1 (Al. Pokoju 67) and Galeria Bronowice (ul. Stawowa 61).
