Walking into Cafe Polonia, I felt like I was entering my Babci’s house. The smells were heavenly. The interior is small, but cozy. I loved the bench type tables, very quaint. We enjoyed the Polish Platter, especially the pierogis. The Chocolate Babka was amazing. We...More

In looking for Eastern European restaurants in the Boston area, we happened upon this one and were charmed by it. It is located in an area with several Polish establishments. It is informal (no white tablecloths!), very small, and quite cozy. The decor is authentic,...More

A nice change from having a sandwich for lunch. Ordered the stuffed cabbage, breaded chicken and of course pierogi. Stuffed cabbage was my favorite of the three but felt the cabbage could have been softer. Breaded chicken was ok. Just not what I expected. Thought...More
