We had lunch here yesterday, so happy to have this addition to the area. Food was outstanding, very reasonable prices. Specialties are Polish tho' the menu is eclectic. We enjoyed sitting on the outside deck on a gorgeous day.

We shared a delicious Caprese salad with fresh mozzarella and juicy fresh tomatoes, and then shared the Polish plate which came with four pierogies (choice of types), 2 large pieces of stuffed cabbage, 2 large pieces of kielbasa, and sauerkraut. Since this was our weekly "break from being healthy" meal, we also shared two desserts, both homemade, both delicious - the apple cake with vanilla ice cream, and a cheese blintz with caramel sauce.

I want this place to survive the difficulties of being new and not being visible from a main road! It's on a small side street near the EP train station, right around the corner from the wonderful Creekside Food Co-op.
