Visited for the first time - authentic Polish food, big serving sizes, good value. They have a daily special that includes soup and a beverage. Good service in a relaxed environment. Schnitzel, cabbage rolls, pierogis....all great! Will definitely visit again.

Went to Cafe Polonez to satisfy a craving for potato dumplings, and we were not disappointed! Delicious food that tastes exactly like my grandmother's, big portions, reasonable prices and good, non-intrusive, service. Casual, cosy atmosphere. We'll be coming back!
