Editor's review

Currently there are already sixteen cafes in the entire country under the name "Pijalnie Czekolady E. Wedel" The tradition goes back to 160 years ago when Karol Wedel started manufacturing best chocolate ever.

The first chocolate cafe Pijalnia Czekolady E.Wedel was opened in 1851 on Szpitalna street in Warsaw and it is open until today.

E. Wedel chocolate cafes are famous for their excellent hot beverages and handmade chocolate pralines. It is because of this that these cafes are often considered as a romantic anniversary gift idea for her and him. They offer dozens of flavors of drinking chocolate, served in many different ways: hot, cold and in the form of delicious desserts. It is bitter, milk and white chocolate. Although wide range of products is there, new ones are continuously introduced to meet the tastes of the most demanding customers.

Handmade chocolate pralines are full of flavors and sensations and also a great idea for an extraordinary gift.

Chocolate connoisseurs will not only find unique and magical atmosphere in E.Wedel chocolate cafes but also a wide range of portfolio brands, among which there is a gift offer - hand decorated cake with dedication according to customers' wish.

Each visit to the chocolate cafe E.Wedel is a pleasant and sweet memory.

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.

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!

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 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.
