I have a tradition on Sunday evenings in Warsaw: after lunch, I meet with my friends to have a coffee in the centre or in the river “gauche” (meaning the left side of the Vistula river) and have desert.
Warsaw definitely has a very large cheesecake tradition: lovers of this kind of sweets will find their paradise here in Poland, not to mention the apple pie, perhaps one of the symbols of Polish cuisine.
With those friends I personally like to hit Lukullus. Once a small pastry business, they now have several spots around the Polish capital without losing their charm from growing too quickly.
My favorite Lukullus is the one that stands on the left side of the Vistula river. Their Marakuja cheesecake and Orinoco chocolate cake is an explosion of taste and a delight to have with coffee on dark, winter afternoons. The decoration is also nice and the colorful furniture, combined with a fascination for old fashion, will make any guest feel like they’re in modern-day ’50s Paris.
Have a break while exploring Warsaw and charge your batteries with coffee and cake.
