“Great polish menu and friendly service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013 via mobile

Been coming here since it opened a few years ago. The owners really care about he service and menu. Many of the menu items are just like home cooked meals.

“wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

I lived on the west side years ago and we never had a great little restaurant when I resided in the area. This was my second trip to the Westsider cafe Food is superb and very well seasoned.
They have an eclectic menu and I can't wait to go back - although it is a 35 mile trip one way!
If there was a con my waitress was quite inattentive, had to flag her down to get a refill and to get to go containers.. They had plenty of staff so that was not the issue.

“Old Fashion Home Cooking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Great place for breakfast or lunch. Flavorful, fresh cooking with very generous helpings. I love limp bacon and the have been pulled it off every time I have made the request. The potatoes are always fresh and not frozen. Nice family dining.

“Always a favorite!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

The food is always good, we have dined here many times and its always been a great experience. There are some polish items on the menu that are always a pleasant diversion from the usual cafe fare. I have invited friends to join me several times and everyone always loves it!

“Awesome place for breakfast or lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

Solid menu with good food. Definitely would suggest the philly steak. Not saying its authentic but I am saying its good. The breakfast foods are good as well and you'll find a lot of locals eating here. Waffle fries that come with the meals are awesome as well. I did have a burger there before that I would not recommend but others have told me they like them so don't know what to say.
