When you first walk in the delicious smells greet your nose. Everything displayed in the cases, looks so fresh. It's a bit of a climb to get to the upstairs dining room..... but so worth the trip! Deciding what to get is difficult. Everything sounds (and is) so good, I enjoyed the borsht, potato pancakes and hunter's stew. You would... More

Great little place! First floor is deli and store. Second floor is the restaurant. Great hot delicious polish food. You can't find anything like this in Rochester. And, it's all home made! Service is good, prices a little high but you get what you pay for! Quaint little place, but than can handle larger groups.

Family run deli with authentic polish food for Friday dinners. Friendly, good service, great food.Also serve some imported Polish beers as well. I luv this place. Just a note, this deli is in an old city house that has been converted. The dining area is up narrow steep steps for those that may be physically limited.

We always do take out. The food is delicious and the staff helpful and friendly. The only problem with the restaurant is the stairs. They are hard for the handicapped.

I ordered Potatoe Pancakes, they were served to me burned on the bottom side. The service was very bad, the waitress didn't know what she was suppose to do and when I tried to get her attention she ignored me. I told her my food was Black/burned on the bottom side so I wouldn't notice it... Yeah, right...It tasted terrible... More

The owners were very welcoming and made sure we got a table with a last minute reservation. They even surprised us with egg free potato pancakes for my son who has allergies. The fish fry was excellent t and well priced. Highly recommended!

I've had the pleasure of eating lots of home-cooked Eastern European food, and the dinners here certainly match the best. I had the roasted pork sausage and kapusta. The kapusta is made with several kinds of sausage and if you like this dish, their version is spectacular. Other diners savored the Polish platter (pierogis, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa, potato, kapusta) and... More

I have been meaning to visit this place for a long time. My Friend gave me a Gift Certificate, so I took my Son and Daughters. I was very pleased we went as it brought back memories of my Polish growing up in Scranton Pa.with my Parents and Grandmother. I loved hearing other Guests Speaking the Language and the Accent...

Pierogi's, golombki's, kielbase, churstike, my mouth is watering. Authentic polish food, made on site, served by polish smiles, you can't go wrong with take out or the restaurant up stairs. Try the fish fry on fridays served with pierogi's, wow!
