Charlotte is a fantastic new cafe that recently opened up in the center of Warsaw on Plac Zbawiciela. It is similar to Au Pain Quotidien as it serves French style bread and pastries and has a giant wooden communal table. The food is pretty good--their 'breakfast menus'(served all day)include yummy house jam, homemade nutella, white chocolate spread, and lavender honey. I've had better coffee and croissants but they are both quite alright. The prices are pretty moderate for the center of Warsaw (the breakfast with a croissant, jams and coffee cost 11 zloty) and there is a nice terrace to sit outside and people watch. At night, the main table in the center is raised and Warsaw's trendsetters come to hang out and sip some wine. Service is terribly slow but I think the staff is just getting the hang out it. Definitely recommended.
