Krupnicza street has a multitude of restaurants and cafes worth checking out and Karma is surely one of those places. It should actually be right at the top of your list if you love clean and healthy comfort food. Due to its increasing popularity, this hole in the wall restaurant tends to get a bit crowded during lunch hour. It has received a lot of praise for its organic and fair-trade coffee (apparently the best in Krakow). Their gluten-free and vegan baked goods are surely the best thing to munch on whilst sipping on your freshly brewed cup. However, if you're not in the area, you can still get your daily dose of caffeine from their other coffee joint located on Św. Wawrzyńca street in the Kazimierz district.

Best coffee in Krakow and very good vegetarian food!

Lovely place, but food was, frankly, rather tasteless. I had a beetroot soup with potato to start (this was actually quite OK), but my main course of roast pumpkin with a few seeds and berries thrown over it was completely bland. It needed some seasoning or a dressing of some sort to salvage it. And as a main course it cost 25 PLN which seemed a lot for what I got. Overall, disappointing.

Hi Jeff, same thing - my coffee was just luke warm. Maybe there is a problem with their machine?
Mike from United Kingdom Reply
Hmmmmm.... I heard good things so was expecting better. My coffee was not cold, it was fine. I had some sort of quiche though that was kinda boring.

Their coffee has ideal temperature. Those complaining about it being too cold, should know that the serving temperature for cappuccinos and lattes is 60 degrees Celsius. You got used to hot coffee at Starbucks and now you complain?! showing your ignorance. The drip coffees they make also present themselves best at around 60 degrees. so you should actually wait before you can judge its taste until it cools down a bit. Sometimes ignorance is not a bless it is just ignorance. the selection of cakes and hot foods is more than enough for me. And everything is always super fresh.

With all due respect, Zoe, you did not drink my coffee, so you have no idea what temperature it was. Put it this way - it was the sort of temperature you might happily bathe a baby in! Also, stop being a snob and putting down Starbucks. Not that I am a great fan of theirs, but with respect I guess they know a hell of a lot more about making coffee than Karma

Really nothing special. Some boring veggie food and lukewarm coffee. The interior was pleasant enough. I'm from Boston and I've seen a lot better. Shame, as I read good reviews....

Different from most Krakow cafes, which is a good thing.
Good things - nice setting, pleasant staff, freshly made food. Bad things - cold coffee ( not always, but often), expensive.Overall quite good
Expat hangout. Overrated.

Agree with Mario that the coffee they serve here is not always hot. But the place is OK.
Dark from United Kingdom Reply

A great place with mouth watering cakes, curries and many yummy freshly made vegetarian/vegan/gluten free dishes...Be carefull though, as there must be some invisible magnet installed in this cafe, pulling you in every day :))

Super place to eat. Coffee is excellent, but not the cheapest in town! Lots of fresh-backed pastries, pies and tarts to choose from. Always a big expat crowd, and with large shared tables and friendly atmosphere, its a great place to strike up a conversation.
