Directions to Cafe Mlynek
When heading for Krakow's Kazimierz, one should be aware that Plac Nowy has a twin brother, slightly off its nightlife buzz: the quieter and less pretentious Plac Wolnica. In the northern corner of the square and in close proximity to the famous Corpus Christi Church, you will find restful Cafe Mlynek; and whether for food, drink or artistic events, it's favoured by locals and travellers.
Cafe Mlynek (Grinder Cafe) was launched seven years ago and its owners are especially particular about two facts. Firstly the food, whose quality and taste have been proven by our research. The place seems to be busy at breakfast/lunch time and while the menu is not too long or sophisticated it is in all probability its simplicity that makes it so appetizing. When it comes to the vegetarian board, which is its owner's cheval de bataille, you may feel well catered for. A fine selection of soups, with an exemplary Polish beetroot soup with croquette, options of quiche, varieties of pasta and again local signature 'pierogi' won't let you leave hungry. And finally, 'hummus', a complimentary element of Cafe Mlynek's menu. While it's always debatable whether it's of Jewish or Arab origin, 'hummus' in the menu refers to the Jewish neighbourhood, where Café Mlynek resides. And last but not least, it's the coffee you should try; it must taste great in a cafe called 'Grinder'.
Secondly, there's an impressive list of various events happening regularly in the café, so don't be surprised to see artistic souls come and enjoy the ambience of Cafe Mlynek. Photography, painting and even sculpture are exhibited in the cafe's gallery, and weekly events include jazz nights, poetry reading, dancing shows and live concerts. Finally: if you fancy out of the ordinary places with good music and would like to meet interesting people for a decent conversation, a bite or a drink at Café Mlynek is for you.
