The streets out here are desolate and there is little Polish around anymore. However, once you enter this store/museum, you'll be awestruck by the amount of things from Poland. Very reasonable prices and very nice staff. A highlight of the neighborhood.

Thanks for the good mention of our store! You obviously came at a 'good' time because most people can't get over how hard it is to find parking!!!

Stopped as part of a family tour. Was the only place I was able to find rosehip jelly, one of my favorites from our trip to Poland.
