Wilcza Street is one of our favourite streets in Warsaw. With a beautiful, eclectic mixture of pre-war and postwar modernistic architecture. It may be a bit rundown, but thanks to it – not so much gentrificated. It has its own unique character.
Syrena, an anarchistic collective, has its headquarters and Kryzys cafe here. You can also find here Oh My Pho and Kuchnia Konfliktu, Znajomi Znajomych, the Lokal_30 gallery, and the newly opened Miss Mellow patisserie.
It was created by Ala Gabillaud and Krzysztof Kowalski, founders of the Super Salon bookstore. Ala inherited the passion for sweets from her French family and for several years she has been running her own patisserie. She does not overdo, she offers classic flavours with a modern twist. You can have here sweet or salt breakfast (a total hit are freshly baked brioches available on daily basis, peaches&cream toast, warm sandwiches with egg spread), drink homemade soda or excellent coffee, order a cake.
Elegant, minimalistic interior bring to our mind similar patisseries in Barcelona or New York. But it is nostalgic and feels like home thanks to childhood flavours and such details like the logo of “bar kawowy” (coffee bar), preserved in a shop window.
