To do Chatka Ech justice would take a couple of pages; touting the most unique design in town this place has a nutty cottage design that features teddy bears and prams, antiques and oddities and features a mural by Ryszard Paprocki (he's a big deal). If that wasn't enough, they even have Birch trees inside. To call it original would be an understatement, though peculiarities aside there’s a lot more to this place than meets the eye, including a machine that was used to make metal Solidarność stamps. This cycle friendly complex is home to book signings and readings, concerts and exhibitions and they even provide English and Italian language tours of Łódź (call for more info)! Every Thursday they even have piano evenings. To top it all off you’ll find an exhaustive selection of teas and coffee – both the expected and the exotic. An added bonus: they now serve wine and liquor as well!
