Great snacks, tasty open sandwiches (roast-beef, smoked salmon, etc.) and cakes. The croques (madame and monsieur) and the croissants are just ok. Nice fresh juices and good coffee. Relaxed ambiance, small tables and big table to share. Staff are nice, but a bit slow and sometimes seem to avoid you

Popular place. You are lucky if you get a seat. Love the breakfast. Good service. Nice sitting outside and have a drink in the evening.

I come here on regular basis, the atmosphere, the food, the service, all of this contributes to a very pleasant experience. If you're in Krakow, for any reason, don't miss it!

Very popular split level cafe with some outdoor seating. Good selection of hot drinks and wine etc. Recommended for breakfast - their bread looked good. Family friendly.

A friend of mine introduced me to this cafe/restaurant while I was in Krakow. I was told we'd find no place if we didn't hurry. Once you get here is when you'll realise what the fuss is all about. This place offers amazing food at great prices (good for budget travellers as well). The vibe is great--it's very relaxed, the... More

Charlotte is one of the popular places in Krakow. I have been here for two times and every time I was very delighted. The place is big and light; the atmosphere is warm and cosy. The food and coffee is good. The service is quite good, but it also depends on the quantity of customers. I recommend it!

The place is very popular, so you may struggle finding a seat on weekends. But it is a great choice during the week. Perfect for breakfast or brunch, but also lunch or something else...there's a wide choice of sweet and savoury french inspired food through all day, don't worry. The breakfast set is a must: home-made bread, jams and chocolate... More

Came across this cafe by chance. Situated a small square near the palace of fine arts. Has an excellent range of homemade soups, sandwiches, paninis, etc. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Food looked and tasted fantastic! Reasonably priced too. Highly recommend!!!

We visited Bistro Charlotte for breakfast on a midweek morning in April. On arriving at about 10am it was already completely full and we were just ready to go elsewhere when we spotted a couple that were leaving. We waited about 10 minutes for the table to be cleared and about another 10 to receive the menus plus at least... More

Had a few breakfast here - great homemade breads, pastries and granola. On a weekend it gets busy within 10 minutes of opening, but there is lot's more seating downstairs if you don't mind that.
