I'm not Polish but I've grown to love Polish food over the past few years. We stopped here on our way home from Petoskey (visit the Polish Kitchen if you go there - also an excellent place for good food). We got there after what we thought would be the lunch rush but they were still pretty busy. You park... More

For a minute I thought we were on SNL "Cheese Burger - Cheese Burger" or Seinfeld's "Soup Natzi" shows. Good thing we had a sense of humor and rolled with the punches. The food was above average. The cheesecake was the best! Warning: Cash/Check only!Unfortunately, we will not return.

Visited the Polish village Cafe just this past Saturday (8/2/14)... thinking it'll be good Polish cuisine... and making the move especially given the 4-dot status given by TripAdvisor. I hope this only happened during my visit and no one else shared same experience... anyway, the short version follows. The positives: - prices are OK; - restaurant is chique, has a... More

Yum! I hadn't been to Polish Village in years but when my cousin was visiting from Chicago I thought this would be in keeping with our Polish genealogy theme! It was rather an adventure driving there but parking was no problem. The staff was friendly. I will disagree with other reviews- I didn't find the atmosphere to be quaint or... More

The Polish Village Cafe is a step back in time. As you walk the first few steps downstairs to enter the cafe, you know you are about to begin a dining experience. The delicious smells of Polish food, the chatter of the patrons, the hustle of the work staff and the "Old Country" atmoshere make this a favorite stop for... More

I'm biased. I grew up in a Polish family with a Babcia that showered us in homemade periogis, kapusta, meatballs and sang Sto-Lat every year on our birthdays. The one colossal mistake was I never learned her recipes before she passed away. Polish Village is the closest we have to my Babcia's cooking.

I have heard of Polish Village Cafe and could not wait to get here to try it. It has a historic, vintage atmosphere that really lent to the experience. The history of the building / restaurant is interesting and lends to its tucked in location in its older neighborhood. We were invited to choose a seat and were handed our... More

This place is still and always has been good at Polish food. The perogies are excellent. Last time we went in, the server was a little rude. Also, it's 2014, and time to start taking credit cards. They did, albeit begrudgingly, accept a travelers check. The atmoshpere is still a dingy basement, but that does add something to the overall... More
