So we are sitting in the E. Wedel in Krakow enjoying there wonderful double milk chocolate drink. Here is what occurs to me. On the back of the chairs is this guy riding a zebra holding what appears to be two solar panels (later I found out they were chocolate bars). My question is a Zebra? I don't get a Zebra. What is the significance, chocolate came from the Yucatan, not Africa?

Very good and delicious chocolate. It is a very light chocolate, so you would never feel full of having that.

We visited the location in Krakow June 2011. The best chocolates ever. Brought several home, but wished we bought more. Where can I place an order.

I went to the Wedels's over Praga way the other week and that was great too. Not cheap, but then again the chocolate drinks and chocolates are amazing.

Love their chocolates. My hotel was just a block away from the factory but alas, I did not have time to go there... next time

I visited this place in the summer and they do great light lunches too, as well as offering all the great chocolates and drinks.

Best chocolates ever!!! Especially the lavender ones. Or the balls with raspberry taste.. or actually just all of them. Just LOVE them
betty b from United States Reply
yes i have to agree there is a bit too much overly-sweet chocolate treats - ask for some bitter, dark chocolate. the hot chocolate is indeed delicious :)

Ptasie Mleczko is horrible! It's just crappy milk chocolate covering a marshmallow. I have no idea how it became so popular in Poland. Anyway Wedel has some really top notch chocolate... try the chocolate drink! Yum!

I agree with Brenda - saw the cnn spot and the picture here doesn't do the place justice. i also can't wait to see it in person.
Brenda Schmidt from United States Reply
I saw this in CNN - the interior looks amazing! We can't wait to stop in when in town over Christmas Holiday. It's our first time to Poland.

I like to think that Wedel gives a little insight into the gracious world of prewar Warsaw. Very very classy and great chocolate to boot!

Chocolate Paradise that makes Ghiradelli back in the States look like Ringling Bros. Ever since my Grandmother on my mother's side of the family brought some of their cakes from New York's Eastern European shops on her visit to California when my sister and I were very young, I was always looking forward to visiting a place in Poland that specialized in the E. Wedel classics. This is the best way of sampling the E. Wedel Chocolate tradition without actually going to the factory. On my first ever visit to Poland and the store a few weeks ago I enjoyed my glass of Mint Hot Chocolate and Chocolate Mousse. To top it off, I brought and sent home several wafer packages. If only grandmother and grandfather could see me now......Dziekuje bardzo.....

I took some American college students to this place....it was excellent...made our trip to Warsaw. A wonderful selection of desserts in the Salon. Highly recommended. We took home a wondeful box of truffles, too. Beats anything in the US.
