“Pleasant surprise”
Reviewed 15 April 2014 via mobile

I found this place by accident while taking a short walk from my hotel, Sofitel Victoria. What caught my attention was a long line of young people waiting to get in. A quick glance at the menu displayed in the window indicated this place could be called "All about Crepes".

After 20 minutes of wait I was seated in a very trendy, chic place packed with young crowd of 30 and under.

Waitress spoke good English and was able to make several recommendations. I ended up ordering a spicy burrito.

It took about 20 minutes to be served - the place was packed and the Crepes were made from scratch. I did not mind waiting.

The food was good and spicy. Not "oh my gosh this is fantastic" experience, but good. I asked for bill and waitress came back quickly and processed my old fashioned "must swipe and sign" US Visa credit card in no time.

I enjoyed the place and will return next time I'm in Warsaw on business.

“Cheap and decent”
Reviewed 22 January 2014

Been here twice. The first time we arrived around 5:30, waited for 30min for a table and then another 30 for our food which was tasty but really after waiting all that time I was little annoyed, especially w/2 kids anxious to eat. 2nd time we came for a late lunch, no wait and again the food was filling and flavorful. Huge menu and good desserts. It's not haute cuisine but it's tasty and cheap, which is why the restaurant is primarily populated with students/younger crowd. I only live a few minutes away and while it's not groundbreaking food, I would likely go back for breakfast to give it a try.

Come at an "off" time in order to reduce your wait time.

“Cheap,tasty, but slowly”
Reviewed 9 January 2014 via mobile

More or less close to the Centrum bus/metro station. Nice cafe, but always full of people. Waitresses look tired, some of them, but those who are just studying, nice and friendly. In order to be served fast, do not hesitate and just come directly to them to make an order) small lifehack)

“Excellent food,bad service”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

If you searching for a quality way to satisfy your hunger,here is what you will get in great prices and quantity.However,the service is incredibly slow(15 min to order,7 min waiting to pay) and on a waitress case,not customer-friendly.Smile was missing and the menu catalogues just thrown on the table.(N) Soups are great.

“Nice place but the food needs some "oopmh"”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

Really nice place to eat in Warsaw, friendly atmosphere, cool design and really good prices. Although the food lacks a bit of something extra, decent but not memorable.
