For breakfast in Krakow
Meaning: early bird. And you better wake up early if you want to eat delicious shakshouka, toasts with hummus or amazing, polish style pancakes with homemade jam. The place is run by a mum and daughter. It’s small but definitely worth visiting.
Even though it’s in Kazimierz, so quite touristic place. It’s one of not many with large breakfast and amazing coffee. You leave the place with full stomach and wallet because the price is super low – 25PLN per person for the whole breakfast.

Real Georgian restaurant with a Georgian chef. If you have never visited this beautiful Balkan country you will definitely feel its vibes with local staff and music. Coriander, garlic, lots of spices and nuts. Above all, the best wines ever and super strong vodka. Chinkali, Chaczapuri (Adżaruli) i Badridżani goes perfectly with Georgian alcohol. Again… booking is needed here.
We were in Italy and Georgia – now is time for Mexico! Colorful plates and dishes you can arrange yourself. Accompanied with tequilla shots you will not be disappointed. Interior of the restaurant puts you in a good mood and super friendly staff will help if it’s your first experience with Mexican cuisine. Above all Poco Loco are environmental friendly and less waste. Go for the venue in Kazimierz – it’s bigger and easier to get a table if you don’t have a booking.
For a beer or drink in Cracow
Very popular place but definitely a must during summer and perfect for stag groups. It’s outdoor so if there is no free sunbed you can literally sit on the sand and admire the view on the river. There are concerts and festivals held during the season. One minus – long queues to the bar.
Very popular chill out area with a lot of pubs and bars around. Place with a soul and wide selection of any kind of alcohol. There are places to eat and buy cigarettes as well. Actually there used to be cigarettes factory before. Dolne Młyny is called “city inside the city” – everyone will find something your himself.
To get to this hidden place you need to solve some riddles. It’s like an escape room outdoor. When you do find it you have a nice party with climatic music and relaxing interior. Original drinks a’la pop culture and super friendly staff. Prices are quite high as for Poland but it’s worth visiting as a before party for one drink and have fun even looking for this place, but shhh we cannot say anything else!
Perfect for our lovely French customers who are always looking for wines. As during pub crawl in Cracow there is not many places you can drink a good wine because as you may already know polish people are more for vodka and beer, this place is an exception. You can taste, buy and even get some fast training how to drink wine. Bottles from all around the world are unique and in affordable prices.
We tried to cover all places where to go for your stag do in Krakow, which are not so crowdy and popular and some quite touristic but definitely a must see.
