If you are looking for Hungarian or Polish specialties, this is the real deal! Chicken Paprikas is heavenly, chicken soup is the best in town, and I can't go there without having a slice of the plum cake! We love this place for a casual lunch or for carryout.

The Hungarian breakfast sandwich is amazing. Excellent Polish groceries as well. You can eat in or take away.

Stopped by this AM and had a breakfast sandwich. Polish sausage omelette on a fresh Kaiser. Great price and very clean. If you're close skip McDonalds and enjoy this cute place.

My husband & I tried the stuffed cabbage, perogies, goulash soup & borscht. We like them all & hope to be back for more. The staff is very friendly, however, one has to be patient because service can be slow.

Had high hopes for this place. Walked in and the food smelled good. Stood in the doorway for awhile and no one greeted or seated us. Finally a kind lady customer nearby smiled and said we should just sit anywhere. Apparently that's the protocol. Waitress arrived and took drink orders. Her appearance and return were timely. However, between the arrival... More

Either the Europeans don't like us Americans, I'm not sure, but I did not feel at home for our first time. I went with my husband. We decided to just be light and ordered soup. He ordered the Hungarian stew and I ordered the chicken soup..We waited, which seemed like eternity for just two soups. I went to ask the... More

we went before the restaurant had been advertised as open during the evenings and were the only two people in the restaurant. The server was a most charming young man from Hungary . The two soups we ordered were excellent , the main courses came out with cabbage rolls for myself which were fine but could have been hotter. My... More
