The reason everyone at Czekolady Wedel looks like they’re in a daze is because this is the mothership of chocolate cafes, ground zero for all things dark, milk and achingly sweet. Wedel is the country's longest established chocolate manufacturer and one of the best known brands in Poland. This classy venue, featuring comfortable seating in room after room of tables, is located in what was once the factory and cafe of the Wedel business. You'll still be able to taste the original chocolate creations of its founders which were so popular that Karol Wedel had to introduce a factory seal carrying his signature to combat the number of forged 'Wedel' products that were filling the market in the 1860s. The menu here is impressive in both its size and scope, covering every variety of chocolate drink, dessert, truffle and ice cream dish imaginable. Chocolate comas are inevitable.
