Where To Hang Out While In Nowy Sacz - Kawiarnia Prowincjonalna

Dearest hearts,

If ever you will be near Nowy Sacz you need to have a short - few hour breakfast/lunch/dinner - break and have some traditional mouth-watering pierogi and some sweet and delicious hot chocolate with whipped cream ;) It's a MUST!  The pierogi you can find at the restaurant at the back of the Town Hall Tower and about the best hot choco in Nowy Sacz I will tell you about today.
You need to find Piastowska 3 (róg Pijarskiej), Nowy Sacz - this street is quite easy to find as it is near the Main Square - second biggest Main Square in Poland, if I may add ;) Once at the Tower Hall, in the West side - in its back, you will see a small street: go straight and then you will get to the Cafe house, which will be visible on your left hand-side.
Though it is not listed on Tripadvisor you can find it on Facebook - where it has over 3,700 likes and 400 reviews, grading 4,6 out of the 5 stars. The Facebook Page is quite active and displays the latest information about discounts in the menu but also events that the local hosts. The place is just magical and I love how not one table and not one chair are the same. It has this antique / old fashioned feeling about it, that makes one feel quite at home and at peace :)
The methods of payment are various - from cash to card, be it Visa / Maestro / Mastercard. You can even pay using blik - a new method using the phone instead of the card. Even if the place has a 1800s feeling about it, they do keep in contact with the latest technology.
The Cafe house is self service so you need to check the menu - which can also be downloaded online here - and choose your treat. Unfortunately the menu is just in Polish so that may be a minus for non-polish speakers. But don't worry, the place is filled with young people so you can always ask for help.
The walls are covered with old photos and replicas of posters that I love :)

The prices are very nice and you can have some awesome hot choco with fresh whipped cream for under 10 zloty - 6 zloty the hot chocolatte + 1 zloty for the whipped cream + 1,5 zloty for the syrup in the hot choco (I like mine with cinnamon or mint!). Tea can be between 4 and 11 zloty - 11 zloty for a huge one of 1 litre. The sweets/cakes - homemade - are around 5 zloty a piece. But I recommend you the hot choco that is very dense and sweet - may cause toothaches ;p - but I think you need to give it a go at least once in your life! I know I would like to have it again - though I may ask for a glass of water as well ;)))

** This post was made out of love for hot choco. I was not repayed in any way and all the opinions are my very own, straight from the heart! ** 

Yours truly,
A LadyBug That Enjoyed Nowy Sacz & its awesome #hotchoco
