This is a very cool vintage Cafe located in Lincoln Park of Chicago. It’s not easy to find because it’s right around a corner behind several big trees. You can enjoy the awesome art, study, eat many sandwiches with poetic names. The vibrant upstairs has three sections, each full wild paintings. You can enjoy the view from the main floor window or sit at table right by the sidewalk watching the busy street.
Very renaissance style restaurant just away from the city center adjacent to a Australian restaurant Koala where you can eat kangaroo meat. This place appeared bright and welcoming but was not so much as the waiter had a short temper and an issue with tables. The waiter spoke English fine but he didn’t want us to choose our own table when only one other table was occupied at the restaurant. Further more he moved our chosen table exactly three centimeters away from the adjacent one. It was wobbly, so I pushed it back against the adjacent table. So the waiter didn’t like that and moved it again!
This is the place where your tab doubles by the waiter giving you appetizers without asking for them. Although common in Lisbon, you have to demand the waiter take back the appetizers if you don’t want them. Everything else was nice especially the shrimp curry.
Along many restaurants downtown the waiters stand outside and invite people in, but this one was exceptional and friendly. Not so pushy like the other restaurants because you can tell after many attempts to bring in crowds some waiters just lose that genuine interest to feed you.
Tawerna was voted best restaurant in Gdansk but you’ll need to put in some effort to find it! It is tucked away in a corner at the end of Long Market street (dlugi targ). There are two entrances. The east entrance is next to a museum and a wall covered with green plants. The main entrance, as seen in the video, has a terrace and vine covered fence.
Cost: $$$ in PLN
