  1. Pretty much any Bar Mleczny around, except maybe the one that’s actually called “Milk Bar.” Take “Flisak” as an example. It’s located near Most Dębnicki (Dębnicki bridge), or opposite the “Jubilat” department store. Choose the thick and delicious grochowa z kiełbasą (pea soup with kiełbasa) for PLN 4.50, pierogi ruskie (potato and white cheese filling) or, if you have a sweet tooth, pierogi z serem i śmietaną (sweet cheese and cream filling) for around PLN 4. With their fruit kompot of satisfying quality you should close in at around 10 złoty. I choose the place for my right-after-work dinches (or linners) quite frequently because it’s cheap, quick and easy, although, admittedly, the brittle, disposable plastic cutlery and sometimes less than pleasant clientele may not be to everyone’s liking.

  2. “Żaczek”, Czarnowiejska street. Soup + second plate (traditional food) not more than 8-10zl. The food is very tasty and fresh. I eat there every day 🙂
