Spent 30 minutes walking around the area in the freezing cold and rain with our 86 year old grandma trying to find the cafe, then got there and it was closed even though it said it was open online. Really disappointed as we'd heard it...More

We're very sorry that You were not able to find us and the cafe was closed. All our team had Holiday break and it was written on our facebook page, as well as the changed opening hours, however this information rarely gets quickly updated on...More

Was here for a lunch. Took the lunch menu of the day. 2 dish lunch portions big enough to feel happy. Nice place, friendly staff, industrial interiors. Worth visiting while on your museum tour to Schindler's and Mocak's.

Great spot to relax and have a coffee. I stopped here between mueseum to refuel - the food looked fantastic too! And wifi was a bonus!

I'm a customary client of this stylish place located a few footsteps from the schindler museum and the mocak gallery. An everyday different menu welcomes customers just like a friendly and kind personal. The service works as in many others places in Kraków: customer has...More

Dear Guest, thank You for your elaborate opinion on BAL. We are constantly trying to improve our service and it is absolutely not our aim to continue socialist traditions. Quite on the contrary. As for the self-service it is and always was indicated in quite...More

Stopped in for a quick coffee and a bite before heading into Schindler's factory. Lots of children today because of a communion celebration, but still a very cool vibe. Chill music inside in a wide open industrial chic space. Friendly albeit a little slow service....More

Good decor in an open-plan environment. Nice little play corner for children and most delicious pastrami sandwich ever. The paintings on the wall were well chosen and the staff were incredibly friendly. Though referred to by some as 'Hipster', there were no beards on view...More

We couldn't find it at first, because we thought we weren't allowed walk on the premises. So a bit hidden, but a very nice, relaxed and friendly place. We had eggs, espresso and water, which was an excellent start of the day. From here you...More
