Sinking your teeth into Charlotte’s pain au chocolate you expect to hear La Seine bubbling past, but instead it’s your waitress bringing giant jars of jams, honey and chocolate spread to dig into – this doesn’t look like typical French portion control. This French bakery/bistro is already a popular breakfast spot, and a communal table in the centre of the restaurant is a genius solution for the many solo diners ducking in for a pastry and a latte. The service at this start-up is still spotty, but considering the crowds it’s also understandable. Charlotte is the ideal place to sip a Perrier and nibble a tart without feeling like le snob. Visit their other spots at ul. Próżna 7, Nowy Świat 6/12 and ul. Kieślowskiego 7.
