Some of the best buildings on Poznań’s Old Market Square are the old Merchant Houses and that’s exactly where you’ll find Pod Pręgierzem. For years this was Post Office Cafe, but a recent transformation has seen it aim towards those looking to grab a quick bite rather than a cup of coffee. The menu boasts plenty of breakfast options (from ‘Polish’ to ‘full English’) and traditional Poznań meals like ham hock and duck. Soft music, cheery staff, and walls decked out in photos paying homage to some of the city’s finest buildings make this a fine choice. There’s even a kid’s play area downstairs which kept us entertained while we were waiting for our soup.
