Krakow - Mo-Ja Cafe - The Pancakes

Dearest hearts,

You might remember me telling you about a place in Kraków where they serve breakfast at any hour, you may even remember my post about the best 7 places to have breakfast in the Old Town. If you do, then for sure it won't come as a surprise the name Mo-Ja Cafe :) Mo-Ja Cafe is located on Starowislna 14, Kazimierz region (Jewish district), very close to the city center (less than 10 min brisk walk) and with a lot of tram stops in the area. Mo-Ja Cafe serves breakfast ALL DAY! Yes, you read that right and you can also read that on their menu and on their Facebook page ;) warm eggs daily! And at any hour of the day! Heaven!

This place is just adorable and so cozy you just wanna come back to it again and again. This time I came for some late breakfast (after 1 pm ;) as breakfast is always good, at any hour!) for some fried eggs with bacon. The usual portion  is of 2 eggs with bacon so I asked for the 3rd egg added - for each extra egg you pay only 1 zloty extra. The eggs are yummy and free range and you can get extra ones as many as you would wish - 1 egg = 1 zloty, perfect for when you are very hungry (and/or pregnant). It comes on the same big plate with a small but tasty salad & toast with butter. I always like to pair it up with some John Lemon lemonade - Polish product - if possible the "pigwa" (= quince) version as it is soft and smooth, not sparkly. Due to the last review the pretty and very nice owner of Mo-Ja Cafe invited me to the complimentary pancake - who can say no to that?!

I was wondering how the pancakes would look like, what style they would be: more European or more USA style? I always loved the USA fluffy style better ;) and they ended up to be just like that! I was asked what version I would like: fruits or jam and I went for the fruits version - the light one, healthy for the baby ;) and it was a treat! They smelled so good, that for a long while I was just sitting and enjoying the fresh smell of pancakes. They did not have any whipped cream over it - which was perfect as many do that and over burden the already good pancakes. But the plate was filled with 5 small sized fluffy pancakes that were well done, not burned. Over it there were thin slices of apple, squares of yellow melon, slices of banana and a handful of blueberries. The pancakes were hot so the banana and melon were melting a bit and adding their juices nicely to the pancakes - it was a real treat! ;)

I must say that Mo-Ja Cafe surprises me each time with a more and more fresh view. Their Facebook page and Instagram account is very active - also due to the lively owner who loves and understands that social media is a friend for the coffee shop. I love their open mindedness and their view over life. I love that they understand that breakfasts should not have barriers and that if I want a breakfast at 4 pm I can have one! I love how they listen to their customers and how they change the place in order to fit it's customers better. The are is a very artistic one... so the latest thing in Mo-Ja Cafe is the fact that they hang pictures/paintings made by local artists - paintings that you can also buy ;) I love how they support and encourage the local community. Kudos for Mo-Ja Cafe! I can hardly wait to see what their next move will be and for sure I will come again for another breakfast & some of those yummy, filling and natural ingredients based pancakes - so should you! Put it on your #bucketlist for Kraków! Trust me, you won't regret it!

The prices:
- fried eggs with bacon (2 eggs) + bread, butter and salad = 13 zloty
- pancakes with seasonal fruits / maple syrup = 13 zloty
- John Lemon lemonade = 9 zloty
P.S. All pictures were taken with the Samsung Galaxy S4 camera, a present from my awesome hubby.

** This post was made out of love for Polish places to eat good breakfast. I was not repayed in any way and all the opinions are my very own, straight from the heart! **
