Many native Cracovians say: "Let's meet at Adaś" because this place is very easy to find than in other parts of the city.

In the 1870s there was a café on the market square in Cracow, but the inhabitants of Cracow were not convinced to drink coffee. The situation changed only after many years when the custom of drinking coffee became popular thanks to the Saxons. In the past, in Cracow, one could get coffee with a thick skirt of milk. Every year there is also a parade of dachshunds in different costumes on the Cracow market. This event is so popular that many tourists come to the main square in Cracow. Dachshunds appear in very creative costumes such as knights, doctors, and even policemen!
