Prochownia Żoliborz – Cakes and aperol

I was invited to Prochownia by a friend of mine who lives nearby. I was not aware of the fact that there are such relaxed, green places to have a coffee in this part of town. Of course, there are Żywiciel and Głodomory but Prochownia has a sweeter environment (tables and boxes outside, surrounded by brick walls, lots of green and monuments). The drinks and food are lovely (check their delicious m&m’s chocolate cheesecake) and reasonably priced (aperol spritz for 15 PLN in town is a good price indeed).

Prochownia is a small cafe / snack restaurant situated in Żeromski Park, designed in 1932 by Polish architects Leon Danielewicz and Stanisław Zadora-Życieński. The park uses former military buildings in the area, like Cytadela.

Prochownia seems to be children-friendly, dog-friendly and generally friendly towards all people coming to visit. The lovely surroundings (walls of military fortifications and lots of green) make it a great place to rest & relax.

There is a lot of fuss about Prochownia, whose rent agreement was supposed to end in 2019. After the protests of visitors and friends, the agreement was prolonged.
