Krakow's Bunkier Sztuki modern art gallery is known for two things: hosting the best exhibitions of contemporary art by national and international artists, and their cafe. Summer or winter, rain or shine, you can sit "outside" in this cafe in the Planty and observe passersby while sipping a cappuccino or a glass of wine. In the summer, the clear plastic coverings are removed and the cafe is truly open, while in the winter the cafe is wrapped in protective plastic and the many heaters ensure that the elements can't get to you. The cafe hosts frequent film screenings and other special events as well.

And there, in Szwagier's review, you have the problem in a nutshell... It's not the servers' fault, it's the customers' fault for wanting service! Doh!

Great place. The reason it's difficult to catch the eye of the staff is because they're *busy*. They don't slack at all. If you're rude to them, they'll be rude to you.

All fine, but the service is just awfull! I was shocked and felt totally offended when the waiter gave me the bill and screamed at me to be faster in paying because she "had to hours left and felt tired!" WTF?!! I felt like a shieeet! Try to avoid it!

The wait staff don't hesitate to let you know that you're an inconvenience. One waitress walked into me as i was entering, spilled coffee on me and gave me a sarcastic "dzien dobry" as she walked off in a huff. Avoid.

Beware of the pickpockets and laid back bar staff! Bunkier Café was always my favourite place for coffee and a newspaper. Unfortunately, I had to change my mind when my friend was recently pick pocketed by the guy who sat next to us and looked very drunk. When we reported this incident to the staff they admitted he had looked very drunk and had been swapping tables without ordering anything for approx. 3 hours before we arrived. There was even a security guy inside the café who was sitting quietly in the corner that took no action whatsoever ! The note at the entrance door says beware of pick pockets and so the customers should stay alert and mind their valuables. But allowing the strangers to hang out in the bar especially when they generate no income and look suspicious is simply a neglect. Beware of the laid back staff in this bar.

Great atmosphere but terrible service.

Chilled out place, good wi-fi, but wish it was all non-smoking. As now the non-smoking part is small and cold and smoking part is always crammed and so smoky you can barely see. Great cakes and coffees.

I think this is the place we went to but it looks very grim here in the pic! Still, a great place!
Carter from United Kingdom Reply
Lovely chilled out place. Recommend the Hot Chocolate with Rum, and cherry vodka! Also agree with the point about catching the staffs eye, but worth the wait!

atmospheric cafe next to bunkier sztuki which does a roaring trade. Yeah a little bit pricier than most, and getting waiters eye can be tricky. still iconic plasticky pavilion overlooking the planty... can't beat that

Not the cheapest place in the city, but the location can't be beat, and the selection of teas and cakes is superb.
