I really like this area – Old Podgórze – and I really enjoy wandering around there, discovering new places each time. For the past few years, it has been quite a popular district and, after years of negligence, it has finally been renovated which makes it a nice alternative to the more crowded parts of Krakow.
Cafe Rękawka is located on the way from the Jewish district – Kazimierz, to Kopiec Kraka (just behind Bernatka’s footbidge) – a route I frequently take on sunny days. I like stopping into places like this. Little charming cafe, serving coffees from all over the world. Coffee is also brewed here, which makes it fresh and more intense. The deliberate, intimate atmosphere of this place is just perfect for a morning coffee and one of their various cakes, which are served here (I especially recommend apple pie).
There are two small, quiet rooms inside the cafe, which you can choose during colder days, or a few tables outside, which are a nice idea for warm days.
Apart from the cafe, Rękawka is also a little shop, where you can buy different types of coffees, so if you’re a fan of coffee – just like me – this is an ideal place for you.
