We called in for evening meal on Sunday. The diner was not too busy with lots of tables free. Staff did not understand much English and the menu was in Polish but we managed to order our food. The portions are not massive but for...the price it was okay. Very tasty and authentic.More

Nice quick lunch, with hearty portions. Very authentic food at a great price, particularly given the area. Would eat here again!

Mleczny Bar are traditional cheap restaurants in Poland. So this one is one of the best in town! The food is great!

My husband and I spent the last two weeks of December in Krakow. On our first day there, we decided to just walk around, explore and see what intrigues us. We were getting hungry and we came upon Bar Mleczny. I explained to my husband...what a milk bar is and he agreed to start our adventure with eating breakfast there. Not only were the prices affordable, but the food and portions were wonderful! The staff was helpful to us (two older non-speaking Polish Americans). It was a great experience to start our trip with!More

Ridiculously cheap, very genuine. Humble staple foods of the polish, nothing posh here, share a table and get down to some serious eating. Dumplings, soups, salads, just fit in with the locals.

Great milk bar, in the centre of Krakow. Canteen style. Traditional polish fayre. Absolutely delicious and such good value. Menu written in English too.

I had lunch in this canteen/restaurant, where you can find a really wide menu, with typical dishes offered at a very low price. If you are looking for something cheap but quite good from the point of view of the quality this place is perfect...for you. For the dishes in the picture attached in this review (1 pierogi, 1 main course with meat and potatoes, the salad is included and 1 dessert) I spent around 36 zloti (€9,00).More

This is a very good experience to try local polish cuisine. The price is cheap and the food quality is ok. However, we cannot complain it at all with this budget price.

Having read about the milk bars, I was keen to try one out. I was really pleased I did, as it was really basic, but worth the experience of trying a taste of what real Poland may have been like once. Food menu was simple...but that was fine and price was very cheap. I had a white Borch soup with potato and sausage, which was great for a light mid day warm filler. Perhaps you need to order an additional option if you are feeling hungary. Highly recommend this if your in Krakow.More
