@Ton: passport check, not customs check to be exact. It's still EU, so it's still customs free.

"quintessentially dutch" - that part would be hard, given that locals consider kebab and shoarma quintessentially dutch, and that's probably not what you're looking for.

-1: sorry, it doesn't have much to do with reality. Lot of things are cheap in Poland, but coffee isn't one of them.

comment Should I change most of my money in my home country or in the destination country?
@Jacco: I'd disagree. I've had CCs from quite a few banks in 3 different European countries. And the thing they had in common: CC purchases were always cheaper than ATM withdrawal. At least according to bank's fees and commissions. Some 3rd party might charge you extra for CCs, but that's against Visa & MC rules.
