Być Może

Perhaps you already have your favourite place for a cup of coffee and some freshly baked pastry in Warsaw. Perhaps you are still looking for one. Perhaps it will be a new French bistro-cafe called Być Może (meaning 'perhaps' in Polish), which popped up a few months ago in a historical townhouse on plac Unii Lubelskiej. The building is famous for having held the first MPIK, Klub Międzynarodowej Prasy i Książki (International Book and Press Club) - opened a few years after the World War II, providing Warsaw citizens with rare books and music, foreign language press and freshly brewed coffee. If you are, like ourselves, huge enthusiasts of bread, you have found the right place. You can enjoy freshly bake baguettes, all shapes and flavours of wheat bread, rye bread, nut bread, gluten-free bread, as well as hand-made croissants, tarts and all sorts of sweet treats. If you're trying to stay away from bread, you can go for the lunch offer - freshly prepared from local ingredients on a daily basis. If you still don't feel convinced, we have one last argument. Wine! Lots of wine. From Italy, France, Spain. Perhaps you're more convinced now?
