Kawiarnia Literatka

  Rynek 56/57 ,   Old Town          (+48) 882 70 03 04     06 Dec 2019
A splendid cafe/bar on the main square, patrons can be seen and seem book-smart under the outside awning in good weather, or retreat into the two-floor interior filled with framed portraits of literary luminaries and ceiling to floor shelves straining under the weight of Polish hardbacks. Decorated with dark wood furnishings, red drapes, chandeliers, and an illuminated globe, Literatka's artsy elegance outclasses most market square options, and has become a favourite place for puffers as it represents the last place on the market square where you can smoke since the ban. Shame that the music sometimes lets the show down, or we would spend most of our time there.

I really hope this establishment is more than it's beautiful location. I came here to have breakfast and work on my laptop. After sitting about ten minutes on their outdoor seating without getting a menu, I went into the cafe to ask for a menu. The staff (1 barman and 3 waitressess) were busy talking to each other at the bar. I got a menu and made sure they had WiFi by asking the waitress. After a while the waitress came out and took my order, a breakfast with a latte. I got the latte after 10 minutes. The latte looked more like a cappucino, A third of the glass was milkfoam, I have never tasted a coffee worse than this. It just tasted sour, like bad milk. Time went by and I tried to connect to their WiFi to get some job done, I asked another waitress to help me with the WiFi she said it didnt work today. After 30 mins I asked for my breakfast order whereupon I was told that I didn't order any breakfast, only a coffee. I fully understand that the waitress does not speak English fluently, that misunderstandings can arise because of it. However, what I cannot accept is that I did not even get an apology because of the missed order or the non- functioning WiFi or at least an offer for a discount on my coffee. It's not about the money, the latte was just 12 zl (3 USD, 3 €). It's all about service and expectations. Im sad to say this but the treatment I got today reminds me more of Eastern block Poland than a West European EU member state. I really hope this establishment is more than it's beautiful location.

This was a very cool place to hang out. I entered it one day and it was full of smoke so I left immediately but because it looked nice, I went back on another day. I was able to sit up on the 2nd floor and liked the atmosphere there. I had a very good piece of chocolate cake and the waitresses were very friendly and talkative. I usually find places on the main square to be touristy and not so good but this place was great.
