If you ever come to Warsaw and you want to drink a good coffee then Relaks is just the place you’re looking for. It’s probably my favorite cafe in the capital city of Poland. A place where I feel really comfortable and where I like to come back now and then.
OK, my best friend works there, but that’s just another reason for me to visit Relaks every time I’m in Warsaw. The cafe is situated in Stary Mokotow, not far away from the city center, but far enough so that you can avoid the traffic and all the noise of a big city. There are few nice old villas in the neighborhood, some old apartment houses and few pretty parks. Each time I’m there I forget for a second about the metropolitan rush, it’s as if the time slowed down for a moment.
Relaks offers you the best coffee in the city and they really know what they’re doing (it’s not only my opinion, cause I’m not a coffee expert). You can also get a piece of vegan or vegetarian cake, muffins, cookies, other sweets, delicious sandwiches and few other drinks. Nice decor and frequently changing posters exhibition, pleasant music and good atmosphere. It gets hot in the summer, but you can always go outside, sit on the bench and enjoy your cold drip or frappe. Besides, the place is dog and bike friendly.
