I go here any chance I get and take family and friends that have never been here. So many good items hard to choose. I love the stuffed cabbage the best!

Tasty Eastern European fare served up in generous portions just like your babcia used to make. Gołąbki bigger than your fist, creamy chicken paprikash and breaded pork chops pounded and prepared like schnitzel are just a few of the entrees that you will find. Two...More
