“best cioccolateria in town”
Reviewed 2 December 2013

E. Wedel is the most famous Polish chocolate brand. And this chocolate cafe serves one of the best local chocolates in Warsaw. The ambiance is like a chic Parisienne patisserie and yet the prices are reasonable. I can't remember its name but I tried something that includes three small pieces of melted chocolate (one bitter, one white and one regular). I didn't like the milky one since it was too sweet. Bitter and regular ones were great.

“E. Wedel cafe(s) should post multiple addresses”
Reviewed 27 November 2013

This review comprises the impressions from a different location - and that is one situated in Zlote Tarasy near Central Dworzec (Centralny) Train Station.

It is located on the first floor that is not so visible as one in e.g. Szpitalna Street but the service is very nice - pleasant as well as the choice of menu items.
Although I like chocolate, I recommend trying the smoothies and fruit desserts with raspberries, white chocolate than chocolate based ones as it is quite rich. The choices were excellent during the summertime and although I checked the menu now, e.g. on E. Wedel website as in http://www.wedelpijalnie.pl/pl/oferta/sklep-w-pijalni/pralinki
those fantastic deserts are not on current menu.

It is comparable to Godiva chocolates and the fact that one can purchase E. Wedel chocolate bars, etc. in "Pijalnia" is great, however do not expect the selection as it is in the main "hub" - Szpitalna Street.

“Chocolate heaven”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

A lovely stylish cafe with a huge array of chocolate. Hot chocolate is the drink to have rather than coffee, there is a large array of lovely desserts as well. Very much the sort of place you can sit reading the newspaper for ages without anyone bothering you to move on.

Well worth a visit.

“Worth Visiting”
Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Chocolate everything. Do go earlier for full menu - I went late afternoon and many choices were unavailable.. Dishes were well prepared and tasty. Nice decor and good service. If you like chocolate you won't be disappointed!

“Delicious Dessert”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I came for dessert, and can high recommend starting with the flight of drinking chocolates, then move on to one of their sundays. All delicious, and from a US point of view an amazing bargain.
