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.

Risky The topsy-turvy world of fashion

Taking the humble grey hoodie—a bona fide 21st century fashion classic if ever there was one—and reinventing it season upon season, Warsaw label Risk is in a class of its own when it comes to casual-comfort wear in the Polish capital. And Risky is their street-level base of operations. Inside, the hoodies share the light and airy store space with the progeny that they’ve inspired (jackets, shirts, sweats and tees), hanging from white piping that meanders its way around the walls. And they’re equal opportunities creators of comfort too; packing lines for men, women, kids, home and even a Jewish collection—you had me at Shalom… A lot of designer dress for one store you’d think? Well that ain’t a problem for Risky—they’ve stuck their wares to the roof as well. So if you ever find yourself outfoxing the earth’s gravitational field, you could quite literally shop ’til you drop here.
