I love real deli's, and this place is the real McCoy! They have awesome cold cuts and a really nice selection. I could not resist getting the kielbasa. It was great. They make nice sandwiches and we had a nice lunch with a real taste treat! I can highly recommend this deli!

We wanted a quick snack before touring the Peabody Essex Musuem, so we stopped here and shared a Polish Sandwich and drink. It was really quite good. We sat at one of the few tables inside. Efficient server.

Wonderful sandwiches or deli products. The pork shoulder in the deli case was the best I have ever gotten at a deli ! Great European pickle products and frozen dinner options. They make a wide variety of different sandwiches , which are delicious and a few tables outside to enjoy your lunch.

Wonderful service. Creamy icecream. Very friendly. Great location. Just a few chairs inside. But the aircondition was delightful on a hot day. They have lots of polish and europian products to choose from.

Fast & friendly service, the paninis are amazing, I recommend the spicy jalapeno cheese (great flavor with a little kick!). When I am in the mood for sweet I always go for the mint chip yogurt, which is lighter than ice cream, so a much better choice for me on a hot day!!!

In Salem for the weekend and stopped in for ice cream. Later stopped back for polish sausage. Folks were extremely friendly, giving us samples before we purchased. Had the double smoke and Apple smoked polish sausage. Loved them both, but the double smoked was my absolute favorite. Wished I would have bought more to bring home. Definitely a place to... More

Stopped in for some munchies and were surprised at the nice selection of sausages and cheeses as well as some great Polish condiments and snacks. The ice cream was great and the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I was there 3 times for the past 2 months. I love their food. I go only for the deli. If you like European style deli you will like it! The prices are OK.

A poster on the window touts European panini. When I ordered one, it was as if they'd never made one before. I waited a good 10 minutes. Turned out to be a fairly small sandwich not worth the money. Very few tables. Uncomfortable, all in all.

This place is a must-visit. They have a lot of hard-to-find, specialty foods, especially if you are Polish or Eastern-European. The prices are reasonable, and the staff is beyond friendly. If you are not looking for anything particular and aren't feeling adventurous to try the Old World sweets, try their fresh breads or deli meats. Finally, the ice cream is... More
