The little alleyway leading into the courtyard may not be the most attractive in Łódź, but Verte certainly is one of the quaintest cafes in town. Think of old local cafes in Vienna, Berlin or, if your imagination can take you there, a coffee house in pre-war Poland. Verte neatly avoids the 'repro' look of many venues which try to make links to the past. A true Aladdin's cave of old and beautifully crafted furniture, antique decor and adding a touch of decadence, a selection of framed Witkacy photographs from the 1920's-30's. The whole venue is also used for a programme of seriously arty photography exhibitions.
