Dearest expat friends,
Having a piece of chocolate a day keeps your heart in great condition, did you know that?! Well that is why I want to present you today a place that focuses on the magical properties of CHOCOLATE! E. Wedel, known as Cadbury-Wedel Polska between 1999 and 2010, is a famous Polish confectionery company, producing many varieties of high-quality chocolates, cakes, and snacks. Wedel is also a well-recognized brand of candy in Poland, considered to be the “Polish national chocolate brand” in that market, and is the leading candy brand among Polish producers with about 14% of the Polish market in 2005 and 11.7% in 2007. In all the bigger cities in Poland you can find the specialty shops where you can buy their products but also enjoy them slowly… while sitting down and having a laugh with your friends 🙂
Where: Rynek Główny 46 (Main Square Cracow) but you can also find Pijalnia Czekolady WEDEL in Galeria Krakowska.
When: From 9 am to 10 pm and in Galeria Krakowska it is open until the closing hours (around 9-10 pm). In the weekends though, it’s open even up to midnight!
The menu: Chocolate inspired sweets that will melt your heart 😉 If you have a sweet tooth, this is the place to be!
The prices: 18 zloty for 2 pancakes with strawberry mousse = 280 grams – very filling! I recommend you to have it with some lemonade or still water with slices of lemon. I am not a huge sweets eater 😉
Whom to take with you: Someone who appreciates sweets as much as you do, but also has a lot of patience as the serving will take a while…
Tips and tricks: Serving will take you a while and there will probably be a queue to get you seated. Then you will wait around 15 min or more for the menu to be brought… then you have to wait for the goodies to be received by you; do when you get the goodies maybe it’s best to ask for the check as well as that will take some time as well. Try to decide fast and not come here hungry as a wolf 😉 Also, the bathroom is at the end of the room, between the 2 columns – just so you know! Also during weekends it may be better if you would make a reservation as it tends to get very crowded and you can sit in the line for half an hour at least…
