Europe in Salem

Been to Europe a few times and some of my wife's favorite items have not been found in the states…. Until now. A LOT of the foods we had this place offered! It was so nice to have it again! Thank you!!

Whenever I'm in Salem I make a point to go here to see if they have any babka. When they do, it's always excellent. When they don't I'm obviously disappointed since I don't live in the area and can't get good babka where I live. We stopped in this time just for babka (there was none) and to browse the... More

The food here is great and so is the ice cream. The staff are very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this place to anybody who is passing through Salem. Overall, a great little place to visit.

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.
