TriBeCa Coffee - #492 of 970 Restaurants in Krakow

Dearest friends,

Guess what I was reading recently... It seems that "Coffee contains lots of antioxidants (it's the biggest source of antioxidants in an average Western diet!) that help the body fight chemicals called “free radicals.” As a result, coffee drinkers are at a lower risk of diseases such as Parkinson’s Disease, Type II Diabetes, and Heart Disease. Here’s the thing, though: coffee drinkers are also more likely to have unhealthy habits such as smoking cigarettes, drinking alcohol heavily, and eating red meat, so the study shown above has been adjusted to show what could happen if these other factors weren’t in effect."
My awesome Husband, along with my amazing Mum & Granny simply love coffee. They cannot make do without it. The first thing they do, when they get up early in the morning, is put the kettle on and reach for the coffee. My lovely ladies combine it usually with chocolate but Marek prefers it simple, with the morning smoke. I guess that is their guilty pleasure :) But when you look at the statistics and see that actually coffee is good for you, but in reasonable amounts and not the 3-in-1 version, I start to think maybe I should try it as well?...
Several studies have shown that coffee drinkers are up to 65% less likely to get Alzheimer’s Disease, which is a leading cause of dementia (source)
We love finding new places to hang out and drink our cofee - Marek / tea - me :) One day, as we were wondering about the Galeria Krakowska, looking at one of the exhibitions it seasonally hosts, Marek offered to get some coffee. We usually go to Coffee Heaven as they have delicious combinations even I try, even if they are coffee related. This time we too a shot at the TriBeCa Coffee on the ground floor - right in front of the Empik Store, on the side with the children stores. I had some lovely tea with sernik (Polish cheesecake) & Marek has his regular dark coffee with a sweet called Dekadencja ;))) lovely name, is it not?!
“It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.” ― Dave Barry
The cheesecake was yummy and it had fruit pieces within and a thing layer of wild fruit liquid on the lower side. Add some chocolate layer on the top as well and you got yourself a caloric bomb ;))) Dekadencja, according to my awesome other half, raised to its dedicated name. It was made out of vanilla + chocolate and mint + chocolate + advocat liqueur (typical Polish) + whipped cream + salty caramel... now try and stop yourself from drooling ;))) 

PRICES:
Sernik = cheesecake = 9 zloty
Dekadencja = Marek's ice-cream delight = 14 zloty
Tea can be between 7 and 10 zloty, according to the type - green / black / red - and flavors

What I truly loved: The ambiance, the music... the lovely tea cups and the smell of the tea raising up in the air. 
What could have been better: Loved the taste of the cheesecake but I found it a bit too dry for my taste.
