I am of Polish origin an I can tell that this place serves good POLISH FOOD. I recommend stuffed cabbage, pierogi, potato pancakes. The owner is a very nice and elegant gentleman, who keeps that place clean, professional and worth coming back.

I would not miss it for the world while in the area. Another 16 bought, gone by the morning. I think they only make them once a week on Sundays so make sure to grab them while they are fresh and tasty!
