Yep. This it.

I always rely on Tripadvisor when I am in a part of town I'm unfamiliar with. Boy, were the reviews correct again. A very old school charming place. This is what finding an unknown gem is all about. Great food, fun and we enjoyed sitting at the bar. We will return with our Polish friends!

If your looking for great polish food this is the place! All the food is fresh made so come in early. I had the Hungarian Potato pancake with pork. Please be aware this place takes cash only. Oh you have to try the pickle soup. We will be back.

My honey and I were in Detroit for Valentine's Day and decided to do something different and head to Hamtown for some good polish food vs. fighting the crowds for a fancy expensive meal. Tucked away on a small residential street one (maybe) block from the Main Street lies this adorable old school restaurant. From the other reviews, I don't... More

Out of the record February COLD, and into the warm welcoming arms of the waitstaff downstairs in a favorite lunch spot. This was a great way to welcome in the weekend. The soup selection is ALL good, especially to salve to Polar Cold: Mushroom that has a thin broth, not creamy, but oh, so solid a mushroom taste; Beet that... More

I have always wanted to eat here. The tripadvisor reviews were amazing, as were the comments at numerous other sites. Since I was raised outside of Pittsburgh in a Polish/Slovak neighborhood, I definitely wanted to give their Polish food a try. I cannot remember when I've enjoyed myself as much as I did at the Polish Village Cafe! Now, I... More

There is no question Polish Village has the finest Polish food in southeastern Michigan. The only other Polish restaurant I found in the U. S. that was close was one down the street from U of North Carolina, believe it or not. But I love Carolyn's cooking at PV and their breaded pork chops, city chicken and veal snitzel are... More

It is my opinion that this is the best Polish Restaurant in America. The perogies are outstanding. Best breaded pan fried pork chops...the sour cream and dill sliced cucumbers are the best. Large portions and traditional ambience. If you're in the Detroit area this is a must visit. Worth my 2 hour drive.

As a girl of 100% Polish descendants, I found the food to be extremely good! Of course no one can cook like one's bucia ( or babcia for some) - or mother - but it's definitely the real thing here! And the whole family thought it was delicious! What I was truly impressed with was their personal regard to making... More

We've been to PVC several times before and have never been disappointed. If you're familiar with the way older houses in Detroit were set up, there were a lot of second kitchens nestled in basements -- where the BIG holiday meals were prepared. When you walk down the steps and into PVC, that's exactly what it feels like -- right... More
