Where to Eat in Szczecin, Poland.

November 8, 2011

A Day Trip from Berlin to …  Szczecin, Poland.

If you’re spending time walking through Szczecin, Poland taking pictures of the city by day and later by night you start to get pretty tired. You need “fuel” to keep on going, especially if you’re going to walk around seeking out street art, so make sure you stop, grab a bite to eat and maybe sling back a nice glass of Polish beer (or two).

Where to Eat in Szczecin, Poland.

As in Szczecin on a day trip from Berlin, I only stopped to eat at a couple of places. If you’re looking for a more comprehensive list of where to eat in Szczecin, check out Lonely Planet and Virtual Tourist.

Now just where did I eat? Let me tell you.

Stop #1 – Amoze

The first stop was at a restaurant, lounge and cafe called Amoze. Serving up a Mediterranean menu, you won’t find any Polish food here.

Admittedly, I did not plan ahead for my day trip to Szczecin. I thought we’d stumble across a restaurant that looked good and that’s where we’d eat. This is exactly how we found Amoze.

As I’d really been hoping for an authentic Polish food experience, I ordered a dish that was as close to it as I could get … some spicy goulash soup and a glass of Polish beer. I know, I know goulash is not Polish but at least the beer was!

Both were quite good and hit the spot. I left the restaurant very ready hit the streets for more walking and picture taking.


 Ul. Wielka Odrzańska 31 70-535 Szczecin.

Stop #2 – Brama

Later it was time to eat again and escape from the cold. Plus, I needed a coffee stat. While walking we spied this stunning building.

Thinking it was just another monument, we were amazed to discover that it’s actually a cafe, restaurant and club named Brama Jazz Cafe. It has a pretty chilled out atmosphere with an overall decor that doesn’t match the building outside.

Cool chandeliers adorn the ceiling.

Pictures of surfers and even a surf board are up on the wall.


Aloha? Am I in Hawaii?

Despite being a surfer’s paradise with hipster patrons, the cafe is a great place to hang out, have a coffee, do work and even eat.

I had a light snack of french fries which were really good.  I’m somewhat of a french fry officiando, so that means something. Some girls have ice cream as their comfort food, I have french fries!

My final verdict on the establishment? Yes, “I heart Brama” enough to come back.
