You’ll find Hamsa in Kraków Kazimierz – the former Jewish District of Kraków. Middle-Eastern specialities are served in a cosy courtyard or colourful dining room. We went for lunch in the courtyard in August.

A 0.4l beer was 12 zł (US$ 2.65) and this delicious plate of hummus and falafel 39 zł plus 7.50 zł for the pitta.

We enjoyed our lunch at Hamsa and I’m sure you will too. However, Hamsa wasn’t our first choice. We actually wanted lunch in Hevre, a restaurant that occupies what was a Jewish synagogue. We visited, loved the look of the place, took the following pictures, but they were still serving breakfast – until 1pm. And although I could eat an eggs benedict at any time of the day, we’d just enjoyed the excellent breakfast at the Hotel Saski Kraków.
