Ministerstwo Kawy Know your techniques

Gourmet coffee aficionados, your ears should be pricking up right about now… Why? Because Ministerstwo Kawy (translation: Ministry of coffee) needs to be at the top of your list of haunts in Warsaw, lest you be derided as nothing but a green-beaned pretender. Here, behind the white-tiled and wood-topped bar, some of the most experienced baristas in town expertly brew caffeinated concoctions using one of three techniques: Drip, Chemex and Aeropress (and they’ll be happy to elucidate the specifics of each). Once you’ve been hooked up, you can sink into a suede-covered sofa, perch on a stool in the window or commandeer yourself one of the thin-legged tables, and rest in the knowledge that you’re sipping on some of the city’s finest.

Dyspensa Seasonally superb

Dyspensa’s calling card is quality. The highest echelons of quality to be precise. Decorated sedately with white tablecloths and walls—vibrant blue paintings hung throughout provide injections of color— the attention falls firmly on the food here, and rightly so. The seasonal menu (think plump wild mushrooms in autumn and crisp asparagus come spring/summer) oozes class, with dishes such as stewed veal leg, fried cod tenderloin on spinach with garlic, and their classic gourmet go-to steak tartare. Be warned: Some belt loosening is almost certainly required. In fact, their sweet take on the Polish staple ‘Pierogi’, garnished with forest berries, demands it.
