Warszawa Wschodnia is the city’s favourite 24/7 eatery, located east of the river (as the name suggests: ‘wschodnia’ means east) in one of the hip Soho Factory’s post-industrial buildings. Headed by celebrity chef Mateusz Gessler, it offers traditional Polish cuisine with a French twist, at affordable prices. Warszawa Wschodnia serves the best schabowy (Polish schnitzel) and pierogi (dumplings) at 4 am. Perch atop the counter seating to watch skilled chefs prepare your dish.

Ćma

Bar, Polish, Tapas, $$$

Mateusz Gessler’s newest culinary venture, Ćma, also serves patrons all night. It’s located in the newly opened Koszyki dining and shopping complex in the city’s central Śródmieście district. Perfect after a night out in one of Warsaw’s central clubs and bars, Ćma offers everything from Polish classics, such as beef tartare, dumplings and borscht (beetroot soup), to heartwarming breakfasts.

Burakowska 14

Market, Fusion

Located in two massive post-industrial buildings, Burakowska 14 combines a day food market, a night street food market, a barbershop, and a gallery and event space – all under one roof. The new venue is a hit with local hipsters and is open every weekend from 9am until 2am.

Zorza

Bistro, Cocktail Bar, Restaurant, European, Pub Grub, $$$

For late-evening snacks and drinks, head to the trendy Zorza bistro – named after the Slavic goddesses of dawn. Here, the kitchen stays open until 1am daily and serves delicious burgers, sweet potato chips and salads. The pan-fried schnitzel is a standout. Make sure to also try one of Zorza’s amazing craft cocktails, such as Warsaw Autumn (citrus tequila, plum and vanilla) or the creamy Opaline Hill (pear vodka, almond and walnut orgeat).

Shipudei Berek

Restaurant, Israeli, $$$

Open daily until midnight, Shipudei Berek is a great casual restaurant for authentic Israeli food, such as shakshouka (eggs poached in tomatoes, chilli peppers and onions), houmous, falafel and meze – perfect for sharing with friends.

Efes and Sapko Kebab

If you’re on a budget and craving kebab, the no-frills Efes and Sapko Kebab are your go-to spots. Efes is located in the residential Saska Kępa district, east of the river, while Sapko Kebab is only a few minutes away by taxi from the Palace of Science and Culture in the city centre. Testament to their popularity, both places are always full of people – both tourists and regulars.
