Hawelka: "Hawelka - Traditional Cuisine" Hawelka Tip by mightywease

Hawelka, Krakow: 5 reviews and 3 photos

  Rynek Glowny
by mightywease

Hawelka restaurant on Rynek Glowney has been serving food to Cracovians and visitors since the 19th Century when Antoni Hawelka opened a breakfast room in his shop.
The ambience is European old style elegance, muted lighting, wooden partitions, crisp white napkins and tablecloths. It appeared a bit forbidding when we first entered, however, first impression are not always the full story as we found the service to be friendly and efficient (our waiter looked disturbingly like a good friend of ours!) and the atmosphere relaxed.
As for the food is was good, solid, traditional and well cooked. Something you can get your teeth into, as my husband put it! And though not the cheapest meal we had in Krakow it was still very good value.
