Cafe and Ice Cream Bar in Mokotow

Café society is just as much a part of Warsaw daily life as in any major European city. Elegant tearooms in the downtown area offer a genteel yet chic atmosphere, while up and coming Praga across the river specialises in edgy alternative cafés.

Ice cream is very popular, and Polish ice cream is very good. In the summer, especially, expect to see long queues outside the most popular ice cream takeaways – a preferred option might be to sit down in one of the dedicated ice cream parlours that can be found in every neighbourhood.
