I hesitated even stopping for coffee since we got a rather late start to the day, but I’m glad we did, for I found a great little café in the heart of Krakow.

Wesoła is located on a quiet side street in the middle of the city and rather plain looking from the outside. But inside, great coffee awaits…and pastries, breakfast, and lunch as well if you are so inclined.
Most importantly, the coffee was excellent…I had a flat white and my friend had a cappuccino. On a crisp, cold day it really hit the spot.
The dining area includes tables several indoor tables, but there is an even larger terrace that was pleasant enough when I was there and I bet is lovely during the warmer months.
I did order a second cup before we left…
Jumping ahead to the following day, we found our flight from Krakow to Chicago delayed. With an unexpected extra three hours at the airport and rental car already returned, I used my flight delay meal voucher for a cup of coffee at Boccone Trattoria.

The coffee menu was nice, the machine was nice enough, but perhaps the barista was inexperienced because the flat white came out…flat and was served far too hot. I mention it, though, because it was good quality coffee and I would certainly give this place another try, with the hope that the baritsa has sharpened her skills over the last several months.
Wesoła Cafe was such a treat and a pleasant balance to what a very sobering day.
My coffee posts are never meant to be exhaustive, but posts from which I hope to build upon as I return to a place. I will certainly return to both of these coffee shops, but I always welcome your recommendations for other great coffee in Krakow.
