Meh. ...

More like a canteen than a restaurant. Food is dished up although there does seem to be plenty of it. All the dishes are up on the wall but they are written in polish (naturally) however there is an English menu on the counter. You order and they shout out the name of the dish and your collect it. If you don't speak polish it can be a bit confusing. I had the veggie burger which was very tasty and the endless succession of dishes put on the counter looked very nice. And very filling. I also had a cafe latte which wasn't great - a cup of lukewarm foam. So give the coffee a miss if you visit. All in all though I would probably go back and try some of the other stuff.

Pros: inexpensive, huge portions
Cons: staff aren't that friendly , confusing if you can't speak polish

You don't have smaller coins than 5zł????

I used to be a regular customer here.

You could probably experience better service in a 1980's milk-bar than you can expect at Greenday -- at least the poor women at the milk-bar are not snobs!

The Krupnicza street area is in need of a new Vege restaurant which is cheap, friendly, and actually has fresh food. Pod Norenami is a nearby restaurant which I would recommend to all -- however it's a bit more expensive (15-25zł.

Pros: cheapest place for students, generous portions
Cons: unfriendly staff, rehashed (tasteless) food, better options

Very new, modern and tidy restaurant. The staff is friendly and the prices are great!! I had the hummus breakfast with a fresh mixed juice and tea. It all tasted very good. And they do have a big variety of meals.

Pros: Great prices

Really great veggie burger! Actually I think it may have been a vegan burger.... and AMAZING value! I think my burger was only 9 polish zloty! Just insane, and for it to taste so good as well! wow.

Pros: Amazing Value!, They sold nice beer too, Good location
Cons: No nice outdoor garden area

Good food, fastly served, big portions, vast menu- both vegan&vegetarian options, good prices. I can reccomend a vegan burger (9zl)
Location is also perfect.
Remember that it is more like a bar not a sophisticated restaurant.
Will visit another day.

Pros: location, fast and yummy food, prices & portions

Nutritious food, super fast

Ate a very good, quick dinner here. I ate the Bengali curry with buckwheat which came on a really large plate with a heap of shredded carrot, red cabbage/beetroot and cabbage salad. My partner had the pierogi (Polish dumplings) filled with courgette and mushroom; they were baked, tasted delicious, but unfortunately didn't come with any salads, although you do get 8 of them.

Would definitely recommend for healthy, safe, quick veggie food. It also caters for vegans and gluten free.

It feels a bit over decorated, very fancy wallpaper, fresh turquoise colours and bright whites.

Pros: Excellent large plate of curry, Healthy options, Served quickly
Cons: Over done decor, No salads with the pierogi

Standard Green Way chain venue

Posted on 09 / 27 / 2013

"Green Way" is the largest vegetarian food bar chain in Eastern and Central Europe with a largely standardized offer and visual identity.

It follows the 'bar' concept: order and pay upfront, fetch and return plates and cutlery yourself - basically this leads to more of a cantine atmosphere and affordable prices. This is not the place to celebrate or propose in, it rather suits the needs of those on the lookout for a quick lunch, snack or dinner. You don't dwell here, you swallow.

The food on offer is best when it doesn't rest too long on your tongue either, for it gets boring quite quickly. Cooked to not offend anyone it's harmless, somewhat bland, filling and consistent in its (very mediocre) quality.

The repertoire consists of some 30 dishes (soups, salads, breakfast, main, desserts), of which a selection of 25 is available each day. Off-menu soups, one main dish and 1-2 desserts vary on a daily basis. 9 positions from the regular menu are vegan, but never are there more than 6 available on a single day (and that includes salads, soups, and desserts) and those are usually limited to 3-4 remotely indian dishes, enchilada, veg-burger, and such.

Vegan, fair trade, gluten-free, and eco dishes are labeled. So are those suitable for children and diabetics.

Not a single plant-based milk available - they are still comparatively expensive in Poland, and yet, almost all the other places in town offer them.

No veganization of vegetarian dishes.

No alcohol.

The far better "Pod Norenami" and "Karma" are only a few seconds away, located further down the Krupnicza street. But maybe they cater to a different clientele.

This place will fill your belly, not your heart.

This is not what makes people go veg, it is what let's them know that a grey, everyday life is possible for veg*ans too. I am reluctant to applaud this, but it's an inevitable part of a sub-culture going mainstream. And in this sense the "Green Ways" are very important. Doesn't mean that it's important to eat there.

Eat there every day - or never at all.

Pros: re-hashed food (fast), fairly cheap, close to the city center
Cons: Limited vegan offer, re-hashed food (poor taste), better options just a few meters away
