Directions to Zielone Tarasy
No trip to a fine old European city like Krakow is complete without a climb to the top of its highest towers to gaze out over the glittering rooftops and quaint narrow streets. Krakow is scattered with excellent vantage points for appreciating the city's storybook-like charm, but what better than to combine a feast for the eyes with a feast for the taste buds, and admire the city from the well-placed rooftop café, Zielone Tarasy. You can enjoy a tasty dish or a refreshing drink as you admire the cityscape at your leisure.
Zielone Tarasy is undoubtedly original, even for a city full of original cafés. It covers a wide terrace and former orangery on the roof one of the grand old buildings overlooking the wide avenues that ring Krakow's Old Town and its surrounding historic streets. True to its name, the terrace is alive with greenery, including pots of herbs which are destined to flavor the café's all-natural menu.
An unmissable view isn't the only delicacy to savour at Zielone Tarasy. The menu aims for both quality and originality in its carefully crafted dishes. Zielone Tarasy's credo is to create a healthy, seasonal cuisine, using only top-rate, ecologically produced ingredients, cooking without artificial flavouring, harmful chemicals or unhealthy products of any kind. From breakfast to dessert, guests can enjoy fresh, nutritious offerings such as yoghurt and muesli or a vegetable-laden omelet (made from free-range eggs); fresh-off-the-grill choices such as herbed fish, sundried tomato-stuffed chicken or duck in a cinnamon-apple red wine sauce; rich, colourful pasta dishes; and an exhaustive selection of pizzas decked out with imaginative combinations of cheeses, herbs and fresh vegetables. If you're after a sweet snack, choose from a selection of fruit-filled cakes, fancy ice creams, or fruit smoothies made with eco yoghurt.
Whether you're looking for a rejuvenating lunch break, a stop on a tour of the city sights or a quiet place to relax and take in the view, you'll enjoy Zielone Tarasy's uninterrupted panorama of Krakow's greatest treasures, from the spires of St. Mary's Church to the towers of Wawel Castle, to the majestic Kosciuszko Mound on its forested hill.
