Each region of Poland is famous for its specialties. Warsaw is no exception …. “Pyzy” from Różyca Market (Praga), pork Warsaw style, hot chocolate at Wedel, W-Z cake and of course, divine, legendary donuts “Pączki”…

POLISH PHENOMENON – the “MILK BARS”

Bar Mleczny – (literal “Milk Bar”) is a Polish phenomenon – you do not need recommendation. Milk bars have been in the capital since 1896, although they are associated mainly with the communist times of the People’s Republic of Poland. The first milk bar in the capital was “Nadświdrzańska Mleczarnia”. It does not exist anymore, but the existing ones are still very popular among Warsaw residents and tourists – also from abroad.

Milk Bar – nor is it elegant, nor fancy, nor sofisticated… but it is a good place to eat good, fast, cheap and tasty.  You will meet rich and poor people here. Many of the Milk Bars have modern decor, however, in some of theme time stopped about 40 years ago, so it can be an experience of time travel straight to Communist times…
