Mlynek has a classic Kazimierz ambiance. It's the kind of place where you'd expect to find a poet wrestling with some particularly mischievous vowels. The location's slightly removed from hip hubs such as Plac Nowy, but in reality, Mlynek's all the better for it. Besides being a supreme spot to polish your poem over a cup of coffee, Mlynek's got some gastronomic tricks up its sleeve. It's all vegetarian here, but with tasty dishes such as Pierogi Ruskie and a ravishing range of toasts and salads, you won't be complaining. Prices are very reasonable, so peckish backpackers won't be left out in the cold.

A cozy, creative environment, artistic. Food is creative as well, excellent cream of onion soup, delicious pastas and grilled sandwiches. Owners are wonderful. All vegetarian with a lot of vegan options. Ongoing art exhibits from local artists and sometimes live music playing. A classic.
Delicious, hearty, satisfying, vegetarian Jewish-style food in and friendly atmosphere. The owners are warm, welcoming and skilled at what they do. The neighborhood is new and changing year by year, but Cafe Mlynek remains a corner stone. You can also sleep in their cozy B&B and enjoy the best breakfast in Krakow! I ALWAYS return to Cafe Mlynek on my annual visits to Poland... and bring my friends! Love the place!
i chose to walk almost 40 minutes to get to this place. It was well worth it. The onion soup that awaited me warmed these old bones. The crispity crunchady potato pancakes (with a delish mushroom sauce) were just right. They can prepare almost everything as vegan or with a dairy base... Where is the 11? I can only seem to rate this place a 10/10. How limiting! :0P Enjoy!
What a wonderful place! Friendly staff, lovely and relaxed atmosphere and brilliant food. Me being the only vegetarian in our group of four, I was a little worried taking my friends somewhere they might be restricted but even full on meat eaters came away from here beaming and happy! I just wish I could eat there more often! Me and my friends all miss those honey lattes... so so gooooood. I highly recommend this place, still can't get over how cheap it was too!
Had a lovely birthday meal here. Nicest of the vegetarian restaurants that we tried in Krakow. Large portions, menu in Polish and English, beer on tap! Spinach dumplings were divine, as was the grilled Camembert with cranberries and garlic bread. Very cheap when coming from the UK!
Whilst Mylnek doesn't have as large a menu as some of the other vegetarian cafes it more than makes up for this in the quality of the food and the atmosphere of the surroundings. Plus, if you're like me and enjoy a drink with your meal, then you'll like the fact that you can grab a beer from the bar or order a bottle of wine.
The food is really superb, too. The onion soup is the best I've ever had and the dumplings are divine. Highly recommended.
We really enjoyed this small, laid back cafe / restaurant. My girlfriend is a vegetarian, so it was great to find a menu with lots of choice. Top marks in particular for the onion soup, the beetroot soup and the mushroom dumplings. Delicate flavours,nice staff, cosy candelit tables and, like most places in this area, excellent value.
