The Best Places to Eat in Wroclaw, Poland

Wroclaw is one of the most charming towns in Poland, and that goes for its restaurants, too. We stayed near the Old Town, so we really had our pick of dining experiences, as you’ll see. Here are the best ones we tried on our quick trip there!


This was the first place where we ate, and it set the bar pretty high. We hadn’t eaten since breakfast, and we’d been walking a lot, so we were pretty famished. Steve chose the “Proud Henry” Polish sausage, which was amazing. And I couldn’t resist the pierogi platter. I wanted to try them all, but I definitely underestimated just how large and hearty they would be. I may have shared with my husband!

Paloma Coffee

You know I’m a sucker for a local coffee shop. This one is located right on Salt Square, and it’s the most adorable little cafe, complete with flowers on the tables and cushy seats. The salted caramel cappuccino was a delight, and Steve and I both tried the hummus and avocado sandwich. It did not disappoint!

Who doesn’t need a warm, hearty soup for lunch on a chilly August day, right? We ended up here, just off the main square, partly for lunch and partly to get out of the rain. Their menu was actually quite overwhelming—I had no idea there were so many ways to make pierogis! But Steve and I both chose a soup instead. It was tomato-noodle for him, and a more traditional Polish Zurek for me, which included mushrooms, carrots, egg, and ham. 

Don’t worry, we did get dessert pierogis! It was my birthday at the time, so I got to pick. We enjoyed baked pierogis filled with strawberries, chocolate, and peanut butter, with a cream cheese dipping sauce. It was a winner!

Cafe de France

I know, it’s incongruous for me to choose a French restaurant while in Poland, but honestly, breakfast restaurant options were slim—many don’t open until 9:30 or 10:00am for breakfast, and we are generally hungry much earlier than that! We saw that this place was open and grabbed a table. 

Steve chose the ultra-indulgent pancake topped with vanilla ice cream and a cappuccino. I ordered a mocha and a ham and cheese sandwich. It was actually quite different than I expected—and smaller! I thought I was ordering the sandwich in the picture next to the description, but it turns out the picture actually went with something else!
