Torun Food Guide: 10 Must-Eat Restaurants & Street Food Stalls in Torun

July 23, 2017 Joeann Galban

Famous for its native son, the astronomer Copernicus, Torun was founded by the Teutonic Knights in the 13th century. You can still see the ruins of their castle, left pretty much unchanged from when it was destroyed by disgruntled medieval townsfolk. Torun was one of the few Polish cities to escape major damage in World War II. Its beautifully preserved Old Town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t miss the striking Old Town Hall. Torun is also famed for its gingerbread.

This small restaurant is really suprising. There is only one pizza served but it it deliciuos. I've never eaten such a good pizza. You can choose several sauses like kethup, mayonnaise etc. They serve a perfect "barszcz" too. Pizza is really cheap and tasty.
I really recommend. The must to be in Torun.

Pierogarnia Stary Torun

Reviewed By Angelica K

As a first generation Polish girl from the US, I've had my fair share of pierogi growing up. This is the first time I've been to a "pierogarnia" that also makes some DELICIOUS baked pierogi.
The restaurant is adorable, very thoughtfully decorated in a traditional old world style and the staff was pleasant. Great fun for tourists!
The wifi probably won't work.

Pierogarnia Stary Mlyn

Reviewed By Perth51

Thought the food was average.
Had a selection of vegetarian dumplings and Greek salad.
Maybe it's because we had some really good dumplings in Poznan these seemed rather average.
Ate most of the salad but spent a fair bit of time picking the really old leaves out.
Wouldn't bother going back.

Completely local place located not in a city centre as most of the tourist attractions however this place is more than more for visiting. Great grilled food served in big portions for a very low price. Atmosphere is very simple. Seems like this place is always full of hungry people.

Reviewed By JakubWarszawa - Warsaw, Poland

Overall is was good Sunday late lunch, but after Reading reviews my expectations were higher
Starters were really nice: Voodoo Prawns in bacon - spicy and done just right. Breaded cheese - delicious, good calamari too
Wine by glass - OK at that price
But mains disappointed - beef cheeks partially charred when reheated and around that like shoesole (other pieces OK), sauce bland. Biggest disappointment was jambalaya, made with poor quality marinated peppers and not reassembling real one at all
Overall impression - so-so
