      These listed diners feature a completely smoke-free environment. Based on our observations, we have found that not only do these diners provide a healthier atmosphere for their customers and employees alike, they are also helping their bottom line. Despite what many owners may think, smokers cost them money. The only things that these diners lost when going non-smoking were the customers who would sit at a stool (or even taking up a booth) for a half hour or longer with a cup of coffee and a succession of cigarettes

  • 06/07/97 Smokefree Toruñ Scott Thompson's admittedly-all-too-brief guide to smokefree restaurants and sites in Toruñ. Sharp and funny, with good practical advice. A traveller's must.
      KASYNO WOJSKOWE: Regrettably, we can no longer recommend this restaurant. The smoking ban here is routinely ignored, especially when the soldiers start consuming alcohol, which often happens before noon. (Does NATO need an army like this?) . . . LOTOS: Unlike at the Zebra, here the proportions are correct: the bigger room is smokefree. The bad news is that even under Chinese authority, smoke doesn't stay in the smoking section. (16 Strumykowa) . . . RELAKS: A good place to complete a culinary tour of Szewska Street. Sit near the door to avoid the smoke in the back room. (4 Szewska)
