Dropped in for a late lunch the other day....sampled the 5 different perogies small order and a Polish beer I'd never tried. What a nice lunch! Super fresh perogies. Best I've had in years, although I'm no expert on the mater.

First time at this restaurant. All the food reminded me of my mother's home cooking. I would recommend one of the combo plates. The Perogies and schnitzel were excellent. Most place to go

First time visitor and will definitely return. Traditional Polish dishes. The mixed perogies plate did not disappoint, each bite took me back to my time & visits to Poland. Borscht soup is delicious. Nice atmosphere and friendly service.

Yes... As they are new the menu is ample but still narrow... I understand they will be expanding it in the next few weeks..
