Tried the platter - the kielbasa was my favorite. Homemade sauerkraut went over well with everyone. Homemade applesauce that came with the potato pancakes was thick & delicious! Super friendly service. Love the open kitchen!

This small eatery with a tightly curated menu is a welcome addition to the local dining scene. the pierogy (Polish dumplings) are lovingly handmade and sauteed to a toothsome crispiness. Cabbage rolls are succulent and the chicken cutlets were crisp and fresh. Everything there is cooked to order and this is reflected in the taste. It's not quite a cheap... More

Do not miss this place if you are traveling through Glenwood Springs. Their Polish food is better than both my Polish Grandmothers! Eat in and take more out to eat later!

We stopped here for late lunch on a weekday while visiting the area. We were greeted immediately by the friendly staff. We ordered the pork chop platter and the combo plate. Both were ample in size and absolutely delicious! The stuffed cabbage was especially good. Of course, we then had to order the blintzes (apple) for dessert. They too were... More

Had dinner here with family of 4 adults. We ordered 3 entrees (combination, chicken and pork) and split it between the four of us. Just the right amount of food. Everything was delicious. Disappointed that they did not have much in the way of veggies (no broccoli) but at least they let us substitute stuffed cabbage for the broccoli. Absolutely... More

We had read about this place prior to our visit and made sure we had lunch. We ordered a combo plate that had: 1 stuffed cabbage, 6 pierogi, 1 kielbasa and sauerkraut, we added on potato pancakes. Worth the stop, its good, its an alternative to all the american places.

This restaurant is located catty-corner to the Hotel Colorado where we stayed during our visit to Glenwood Springs. We'd never tried Polish food but we love tasting new kinds of cuisine so we stopped in for lunch. We were so pleasantly surprised! Everything was made fresh when we ordered but it didn't take long at all. We ordered the Combo... More
