The lifestyle and work pace are ever-changing, and one of the reasons why we choose to eat out more and more, also at the start of the day. For some it is a professional necessity, for others - an way of spending a lazy morning. Both seek tasty, fresh breakfasts, available at early hours of the day. Poznań’s breakfast spots are scattered all over the city, which is often the reason for choosing your favorite one - is convenience not important, on our way to work or school? If you are still on the lookout for your favorite brekkie spot, we are happy to share our faves with you. Here, they are listed in the order of earliest opening hours on workdays.

Bo. is still riding the wave of popularity - and well deservedly, too. The food is quick and tasty and the place is perfect for a business meeting over coffee or a little laptop time with a slice of delicious cake. Bo.’s yet another excellent season culminated with a mention in the prestigious Gault&Millau Polska culinary guide for 2019, appearing in the new category of POP. Their creative and tasty dishes are a recurring theme in conversations of guests and critics alike, and the restaurant is one of Poznań’s most interesting breakfast spots. Some of their staples have even been copied by other restaurants. Be sure to try the full English, the salmon rolls and the black pudding brioche. Customer loyalty is rewarded with a discount.

Orzo appeared in Poznań in mid-2018 and moved into the two storeys of a newly refurbished townhouse on the corner of Poznań Old Town’s streets of Garbary and Wielka.

ŻUK breakfast&lunch&dinner is a brand new place which has just opened in the tennis court area of Poznań’s Golęcin district. On route from Park Sołacki to Lake Rusałka there is an ice cream booth and an outdoor seating area. As you move forward, you will see ŻUK, the newly built restaurant and cafe which also serves breakfasts. There is no problem with parking the car nearby and heading out for a walk around the lake or park your bike for a while for a quick pitstop. It is a great starting point for the lovers of active leisure - cyclists, walkers (nordic or otherwise) and joggers. The new menu will be tweaked along the way to match the guest’s expectations but already includes such crowd favorites as scrambled eggs, omelettes and sausages as well as freshly made waffles.

Mówisz Mash opened in late 2018 on the corner of Jeżyce’s Zwierzyniecka and Kraszewskiego, adding tasty breakfasts to this popular foodie district’s rich offer. They also serve homemade cakes and great coffee, but it is the breakfasts that make this place exceptional in our eyes. On weekdays, breakfasts are served from 7.30am and on weekends - at 10am. The breakfast offer is tasty, nicely served and varied. The coffee is also excellent and it is worth mentioning that the water in the carafe placed on the bookstand is free of charge. If you are looking for a place for some laptop email time over a nice cuppa - Mówisz Mash is the answer. We have been here numerous times - we checked all the breakfast items on offer and we can honestly say they did not disappoint. Try for yourself!
Żydowska 29, Poznań
phone no.: +48 726 185 503
The Bardzo menu lists 5 breakfast offers served with the GODny bakery bread and toppings such as gochugaru mayo (with Korean pepper), muhammara (baked pepper and walnut paste) or dukkah (Egyptian spice mix). All served with a smile and supporting a higher cause. The eggs come from happy free-range hens, the coffee from a global fairtrade chain and the aforementioned bread supplier is known to everybody by name. Here, each slice of bread, each cake and each and every coffee bean has their own story to tell and carries meaning which can be discussed further with the lovely staff in an informal, relaxing atmosphere. It is undoubtedly very charming and vital to many of us. The coffee and brekky combo costs around 30 PLN (~EUR 7).
Młyńska 12, Poznań
phone no.: +48 606 431 689
Kick the day off Parisian style! Cafe Młyńska is another great result of the Młyńska 12 concept - this time focusing on breakfasts. If you don’t have the time to sit down for brekky, keep in mind that the Big Bonjour’s French recipe-based, home baked goods are also available to take away. Baguettes, croissants and other sweet pastries fill the entire place with a heavenly aroma. A breakfast here goes well with a cup of tea, coffee or the fantastic cold brew - or even a glass of bubbly for the brunch lovers. Cafe Młyńska is open Monday to Friday from 7am.

Although AleKosmos is mostly known for its baked goods, it is worth keeping in mind that from Tuesday to Sunday it also offers a great selection of breakfast items, served on weekdays from 9am and on weekends from 10am. On the all-day breakfast menu there are such favorites as sweet porridge, two kinds of omelettes, avocado and egg toast and two kinds of shakshuka. The breakfast menu items without drinks are priced up to 30 PLN (~EUR 7) and you can add a cup of delicious coffee to it for a few bucks more. The two owners of AleKosmos break the stereotype of the baked goods business being female dominated - they are two cool guys. In the summer of 2019, AleKosmos changed its location to a bigger place in Poznań’s Jeżyce district - to broaden its and its guests culinary horizons - and is open till 4pm.
Prusa 4/2, Poznań
phone no.: +48 501 031 787
Popular for its excellent coffee, Uno (previously aptly named Uno Espresso) has recently introduced a breakfast offer into their menu. Located in Prusa street, it is basically a bit off the Jeżyce’s foodie track. If you have been there before, it must be because you live in Jeżyce or it was recommended to you by a regular - and rightfully so! On the breakfast menu there are eggs Benedict, goat’s cheese on toast, fruit granola, toast, omelettes and shakshuka. The goat’s cheese omelette in particular is to die for! Uno is also, of course, coffee which we should have mentioned at the very start. There is aeropress, drip, chemex and espresso machine coffee… and to top it off, there are teas, lemonades, hot chocolates and fruit and veg smoothies. Do try Uno - and keep in mind, the parking is rather limited so maybe consider coming by bike or public transport.

The cafe is open 7 days a week on weekdays and Saturdays from 8am and on Sundays from 9am.

Kahawa Kawa i Książka
Cyryla Ratajskiego 10d, Poznań
phone no.: +48 601 764 764
Kahawa is the place for a tasty breakfast, lunch, slice of pie, a cup of coffee and… a book, as the name Kawa i Książka (coffee and book) suggests. You can have the superb African coffee on the spot or buy the beans to brew it at home. The friendly staff will advise on which coffee and method of preparation to choose and which one to take home with you. This place really has a charming “old bookshop” vibe with a few coffee tables for a yummy breakfast, the aforementioned lunch or the excellent baked goods - with a cup of coffee or tea to wash it down, or water, juice or bottled Wostok lemonade. The menu lists granola, sandwiches, omelettes and eggs, plus four light lunch items, ideal for a quick bite on the go. On weekdays, the breakfast is served from 8.30am, lunch between 1pm and 6pm. Check it out - the full menu is also available online.

Zakwas is mainly a bakery which, in its first location, had very limited conditions for serving breakfast. It was charming in its own way, but too often it was impossible to find even a square of free space. Today, the spacious new Zakwas offers a breakfast menu in a few classic varieties served with their own homemade bread baked right there on the spot. You can have your brekky with a cup of lovely coffee from an espresso machine and after, take a pastry to go, but remember - the sweet baked goods are not always available first thing in the morning as this is mainly the time to bake and sell bread. From the brekky offer we recommend the porridge, eggs sunny side up, as well as salmon and BLT sandwiches.
Kraszewskiego 12/2, Poznań
phone no.: +48 664 141 155
Święty was supposed to be a bakery - but in time, the idea appeared to start also serving breakfast on the basis of their excellent, homemade breads. And so, you can have one of the many sweet of savoury breakfast items, have a coffee and pastry on the spot or buy a tasty sweet treat and a sandwich to take away. The interior’s staple is the magnificent stained glass which is inspired by Jeżyce district’s architecture traditions. Our absolute favorite was the prawn roll - mostly because of the delicious dressing - be sure to try them!
