Bar Mleczny Krakow Reviews
Polish experience from communist times Mar 12, 2011
Literally meaning "milk bar" in Polish, these cafeterias dates back to the communist days. They were subsidized by the government, offering cheap meals to workers during that time. They were called milk bars, because they served mainly dairy products.
Now considered a relic, these cafeterias are disappearing, as they face tough competition. But if you can find one, this is a great place to get a cheap meal.
When you enter, you pick the dishes on display, or the food you want. Then just pay at the end. Very simple, and the food is not bad either, although it may not appear that way. Very filling, and for a cheap place. And to experience something from the communist past.
If you are in Krakow, there is one on Grodzka Street, which is off the Main Market Square in Old Town.
