This is a Polish cuisine restaurant. There are steamed and sauteed perogi to sample with different fillings (plus other things that we did not try). The Perogie were good, the sauce on top was not very varied, basically sour cream or a variant or "gravy" (pretty much oil/butter? with bits in it). The "sour" soup was very nice. the service was nearly non-existant, some sort of person with no commitment to the job, dressed up in what was supposed ot be traditional costume.

"U Hopfera” is one of the oldest Warsaw restaurants, with roots reaching deep into the 19th century. It is mentioned in a famous book, “Lalka”, written by Boleslaw Prus in 1890. We popped in lunch time to try some of the local PIEROGI which are tasty traditional Polish dumplings.

We were a little unsure what to try but the waitress, who by the way was gorgeous, was really helpful and gave us good advice about what to order. We each chose a different type of PIEROGI and shared them between us together with a couple of small salads and a selection of dressings.

Everything tried was very good as was the local beer.

Got 9 different steamed pierogi and some fried pierogis for my wife. I was not a fan of the one with blue cheese or the one with salmon but all of the others were terrific. The dough was not too thick or sticky. They were all soft and served hot. The staff was friendly and helpful. All of the servers were dressed in authentic Polish dresses. I would return anytime I have a pierogi craving
