New Year’s Day in Krakow - Best Brunches for Hangovers

After a night of epic partying on New Year’s Eve, known in Poland as Sylwester, you might be feeling rough on New Year’s Day morning. Great news is, Krakow is full of cafes, breakfast bars and bakeries serving up slap-up breakfasts that will jump-start you into feeling like yourself again.


For a hearty breakfast on a budget, Krakow is famous for its abundance of milk bars, or Bar Mleczny, serving up wholesome and filling food. These cafeteria-style places offer eggs and omlettes, baked goods, and of course, milk. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Bar Mleczny Centralny – First opened in the 1950s, this is one of the city’s most authentic milk bars. If you’re looking for something quick and filling, grab a table and join the queue! 
  • Bar Mleczny ‘Poludniowy – Located on the market square, this milk bar will give you a great meal for only a couple of euros. You can enjoy omlettes and minced meat cutlets, as well as good coffee and milk. 
  • Bar Targowy – open from 8am every morning, Bar Tagowy has a cosy feel, and welcoming staff. Serving plenty of Pierogi dumplings in lots of varieties, with plenty of coffee, this is the place to be for a great breakfast or brunch. 


Breakfast Bars

A cooked breakfast and a steaming cup of coffee is just the thing to settle the stomach after a night out you may or may not remember! Krakow is full of quirky cafes with menus you’ll want to come back to again and again. Take a look at some of our favourites below.
