We are currently enjoying stunning autumn in Warsaw, and Stalowa Street in Praga takes us back to the times of cobblestones, tenement houses, bricks, and beautiful yet not renovated shop window displays. This is where Rano, one of the most popular craft bakeries, is located. Is this location a random choice? We are asking Weronika Nogańska and Mateusz Karkoszka, the founders of Rano.
“We lived in Targowa Street and we have just fallen in love with Stalowa. A year ago after the Easter holidays, we saw a rental ad. I was the first one who called and we just got it!”, recalls Weronika.
Weronika and Mateusz, have been working in gastronomy since they remember. She specialises in pastries and polished her skills at Lokal Bakery in Katowice. “We have three different types of bread in our regular offer: wheat, wheat with oats, rye with linseed and sunflower seeds but on Saturday we additionally sell 100% rye bread. We make our products from flour from the Babalskis and Ciechanów but we also cooperate with Polski Młyn since we need flour on time and with different companies, timely delivery turns out to be problematic sometimes “, says Weronika.
Last week they have added coffee to their offer. The place was renovated by Mateusz with help from Weronika’s father. Everything turned out perfect. The interior is simple yet cozy. “What we like most is contact with people. We already have our regulars”, says Mateusz. And indeed, there are a lot of customers. We recommend visiting this place early in the morning. The bakery opens at 8 AM.
In the cafe section, you can eat sourdough chocolate cake, bostocks, brioches with pearl sugar and hopefully soon, Chausson aux Pommes, which is in the test phase. With time Rano wants to expend its offer adding sandwiches and various types of egg dishes. Anyone who remembers Mateusz Karkoszka from Kieliszki na Próżnej knows that it will be something simple yet excellent. We just can’t wait!
