Many's the time I've indulged in the delights found at this Polish pierogi palace, and my latest visit did not disappoint. The super-smart owner, who seems to have inherited the place from her parents, has done much to keep the quality up and the traditions alive, while casting an eye towards some innovation - some vegetarian soups and jalapeño and...

We came here on a Sunday afternoon, and it was already packed. We managed to get a couple of seats at the bar. We shared the cabbage roll dinner, with an extra soup. I had the dill pickle soup. It was okay, but not enough dill. The cabbage rolls are okay....The sauce was too sweet. The green beans seemed like... More

Decorated for Christmas, Polish Village Cafe was so festive. We loved the trio of musicians roaming from table to table. The waitress was mediocre but didn't bring down our visit. The food was, well, polish food. Served almost hot. I liked the stuffed cabbage but it was not exactly a culinary adventure. The kielbasa appetizer was tasty but honestly not... More

Cucumber in sour cream salad, potato pancakes and pierogis! This is polish food!! Also notable options: kielbasa soup, dill pickle soup (duck blood if you fell really adventurous!) and amazing dinners. Service has slumped a little recently but as long as the food stays stellar it is worth the waits!

This restaurant has a number of five star reviews, but I'm not sure I can agree with them as there were just way too many quirks. If you're calling to make a reservation, don't bother because they don't, but they took our name anyway after we said we had a large group. When we called back to confirm there was... More

This is my go to place when I am in the area. My favorite time to visit is during Christmas. My Auntie Emily loved it here, she loved there potato pancakes. I love the soup and hubby loves the city chicken. Never had a bad meal, and the coffee is good.

Like I said in the title, you MUST try the dill pickle soup!!! I love a lot of things at the Polish Village Cafe (also known as Zosias). The dill pickle soup is the right texture, the right flavor, the right amount of pickles, no awkward ingredients, and a mouth full of satisfaction. If you go there, you also must... More
