Once upon a time there was a small bistro close to Warsaw’s university library.
The lady that used to manage the bar was really into revisiting Polish cuisine and offering guests traditional ingredients with a touch of modernity. After the first experiment, she decided to close “Przystanek Powisle” in order to rebuild it with a spectacular window to the district. Now it is back and I’m very happy that I can visit one of my favorite spots again.
The location is very easy to reach and on a sunny day it is possible to sit outside. I would say that the most interesting thing is the green colors, not only in the graphics decorating the place, but also out of the windows and the dishes they serve.
In fact, they serve their goat cheese with chicory and the pate is made with beans, parsley, lentils, red peppers, carrots and other vegetables or legumes.
Their desserts are also really tasty – the frozen mousse was something I’d never tried before.
The prices are very affordable and the staff is friendly and always ready to help guests. It’s the perfect spot for a slow afternoon or a sunny Sunday after a bike ride.
