Kraków is full of any kind of dining you could wish for. North of the square you'll find fancy white table cloth dining strangely mixed in with strip clubs. The south side seems to be where you'll see the locals hanging out in charismatic cafes and bars with authentic, cheap and delicious Polish food.
We stumbled across Koko on our first night here, and ended going back two nights in a row. For less than £8 we were served more than we could posibally eat... Including soup,mains, dessert and drinks.
Koko seems to be the kind of place the locals of Kraków will hang out to casually meet up with friends or drop in solo for a quick meal. You orderly the bar from the set menus which include options of chicken, duck or pork, and before you know it your table is so loaded up with food it's at risk of collapsing. Try the pancakes if you go, they are amazing. And beware if you order the duck it's literally half a bird.
You can find it at Świętego Krzyża 15. There is a small cafe area at the front on the street, if this is full go around the back where there is another larger room and a big courtyard at the back.

Ps. If you are missing your Australian quality coffee, go to Karma coffee on Wawrzyńca St. If you are pining for your East London hipsters you'll fit right in here too :)
Still need more hipster? Head to Bal in Zahlocie and you'll feel like you never left Hackney. The pancakes are delicious! (Also good coffee and super funky neon typeface signage if that's your thing).
