Gehanowska Pod Sloncem
Situated on the sunny side of the Market Square, Gehnowska is located in a fine old 15th century building originally owned by the Gehans, a family of goldsmiths. In its current state it is both café and restaurant serving up a delicious range of coffees and tea as well as a competent international menu of food and drinks.
The café is on the ground floor with outdoor seating in the warmer weather and is a great place, seated inside or out, to watch the hustle and bustle go by. On a warm, sunny morning sitting here over a coffee, taking it all in, has to be one of city's most memorable experiences for any visitor.
Venture inside and you are welcomed by friendly staff in a light and airy setting of high ceilings and elegant furniture. The window seats are just the ticket for a read of the daily news and to get distracted by life outside. If you want something a little cozier, further back there is another room with a different feel altogether. Low-lit, snug and comfortable, this part of the café is a lot more private where you are sure of some peace and quiet as you chat over an espresso and a delicious dessert.
Go downstairs in a cool, air-conditioned cellar space that looks tastefully laid out and inviting. The menu is quite extensive and some though has gone into catering for different tastes even if it does look a tad predictable. The meat eaters have plenty to choose from, while the vegetarians do have less choice, they won't be disappointed. All the food is cooked to order and looks appetizing. What surprised us was the price - prime location it might be but heavy on the wallet Gehanowska is not.
