Zorza, Śródmieście Południowe, Warsaw
I did my part in celebrating Canada Day with a maple and bacon French toast morning at Zorza. Turns out it was a bit too early for most cafes around the place in Warsaw, but Zorza was a more than worthy consolation. Service was efficient and friendly (despite not quite knowing each other’s languages!).
I was happy to see a cold brew on offer and relieved it was as good as I was hoping for. The icy drink has strong nutty notes and gives me that caffeine kick I oh-so-need. I thought the design of Zorza itself was some top notch stuff. It feels so light, so airy. For a minute I almost thought I was in the reception of a fancy hotel bar. I found myself a cosy spot on the windowsill admiring the pattern of the raindrops.
As with everything else I have feasted on whilst here in Poland – fantastic value in the food from Zorza. The maple syrup comes on the side so you can manage to your liking, but you’ll end up drinking it all anyway. Maple and bacon is a devilish combo, eh? You could dip it in, spread it all over, or just grab a straw and run with that.
The bacon is delicious, fried crisp, and the cheese top gives it that crunch factor. The overrun edges of the cheese are absolutely divine. Remember that cheesy crust? It’s just like that The peppery rocket functions well to avoid it feeling completely heavy, though still obviously there as a token green. This is of course a very rich breakfast and very worthwhile.
And I was in and out of Zorza in good time, ready to make the most of my final day in this lovely city! As a bonus the rain took a break too.
