is a popular tourist town in the summer months on Poland’s Baltic Coast. For those who rise and shine early here, the feast of a sunrise and the joy of a tranquil beach will greet you. The town is a party capital, and in Sopot’s bars,
most of the youngsters stop partying at 6 a.m. and barely awaken before the midday suns rears its head. Time to take advantage and check out Sopot’s breakfast and brunch treats. While options are not huge, as some venues don’t even open until 11 a.m., this list should be perfect for the early risers.
Restaurant, Bar, Polish, $$$
Dwie Zmiany opens at 9 a.m. and has perhaps the most peculiar appeal of all the bars in Sopot. The reason being, it feels like a bar, a pub, a café and an art gallery all in one, and the atmosphere can transform from morning to evening! The pub’s name translates as “two changes,” but takes this name from a beer brewed in Poland’s Warmia region. As well as a super breakfast and brunch venue, it makes a great stop off on a pub crawl, or on route to the beach.
Pijalnia Czekolady E.Wedel
Cafe, Dessert, Polish, $$$
For a breakfast or brunch with a difference and for those with a “sweet tooth,” Pijalnia Czekolady E.Wedel is the place to be. The Wedel chocolate brand
has been a part of Polish culture since 1851 and is famous for having the best chocolate in the country. These days, the brand has opened a number of upmarket and stylish cafés all over Poland. Here in Sopot, you will be able to try their signature hot chocolates right on the main strip. The extravagant menu includes delicious waffles, ice cream, pancakes, and many other chocolate-themed options. It’s worth splashing out some extra cash to really enjoy yourself here.
Restaurant, Bar, Cafe, European, Polish, $$$
Cafe Ferber is a firm favorite for locals and tourists alike with its consistent menu. Acting almost as a café, restaurant, and bar all in one, in keeping with the vibe of Sopot, it somehow manages to fulfill its niche in all three markets. Great breakfasts and coffee are served from 9 a.m. and brunches bring delight with good soup and meat dishes.
Restaurant, Cafe, Polish, $$$
Kava is a cool venue which beats the others on this list due to its early opening time of 7 a.m. The restaurant’s name translates appropriately as “coffee” in Polish yet is deliberately spelled in the English way—it should be “kawa.” It is located on the ground floor of a department store on Sopot’s famous Ulica Bohaterow Monte Cassino. As well as being one of the best coffee venues in Sopot, there’s a choice of breakfast from early morning and a concise but impressive selection of main courses for lunch and dinner, including tasty salads, pasta, and burgers.
Restauracja Wave is one of the rare Sopot venues that is open mostly for breakfast only. It is part of the Sheraton Hotel but welcomes visitors too. The best things about Restauracja Wave is its location on Sopot seafront and the fact that it opens at 6:30 a.m. Higher prices are to be expected but worth spending some extra cash on.
Cały Gaweł Cantine Bar Cafe
Bar, Contemporary, Polish, $$$
Cały Gaweł Cantine Bar Cafe is truly one of the trendiest up and coming places in the city for brunch and breakfast. The menu has some unusual items on it too—such as burgers with black buns, eggs that are served still in the frying pan, and some superb seafood dishes. The coffee, tea, and fruit juices are served to perfection and as the afternoon and day progress, the cocktail menu shoots itself out at you with some scintillating options.
1911 Cafe & Restaurant
Restaurant, Contemporary, Polish
While the name of this restaurant suggests it may have been here since before the First World War, the venue is every bit what modern day Sopot represents—style, great food, exquisite menu, cozy décor, and a marvelous location just a two minute’s walk from Sopot’s pier and seafront. The menu boasts salmon with cucumber and horseradish sauce and deer with garlic, asparagus, and potato. It’s also a nice venue for a mid-day wine.
