Little Poland Restaurant
Posted by Jewish Guy on 12/13/2006
Little Poland is wonderful. Set up much like a coffee shop and serving breakfast from 7 AM and dinner till late, one should have reasonable expectations about the decor considering the restaurant's versatility. But, for something really different, you can't beat this homey little spot. I had never had authentic Polish food, so I opted for the Combination Platter which offers a huge and tasty stuffed cabbage, kielbasy, 4 delectable Pierogis (you can mix and match these!!! I recommend the Kasha and Spinach varieties), and a heaping portion of Bigos which is sweet saurkraut flavored with tangy meat bits. I also tried a very savory and delicious Lentil soup which was served with Challah! On the subject of Pierogis, Little Poland offers at least 8 or 9 different kinds and I wish I had the appetite to have tried them all. My date and I stuffed ourselves and had to spend the evening exploing Greenwhich Village to work off our shameless indulgence. Little Poland serves very hearty and flavorful food, so bring a big appetite and leave your diet on 2nd Avenue. For something really different and satisfying for amazingly low prices, you can't beat Little Poland.

I've been coming here for years now and will eventually try out the entire menu. You will never go wrong with the Combonation Platter. I discovered this place while in college, graduated and still come here when I visit New York. I get a takeout order-- the combo platter, of course--before I leave and bring it back with me on the plane all the way cross country to California. Like some of the other reviewers have said, it's your basic, cozy neighborhood diner. You don't go for the decour; you go for the heapings of delicious comfort food. They have typical american diner food on the menu as well, but I like the Polish home cooking. Everything is tasty, but I can't recommend the combo plate enough. Best value around!

Took 4 out-of-towners for a quick lunch, the food here is always fresh & good, very reasonably priced, and, again, I was pleased. Can't find a better homey, neighborhood place that is a good value like Little Poland.

If you are down for just some flat-out authentic, delicious, inexpensive Polish food, Little Poland is the place to go. I frequently make a trip into Manhattan just to go there and eat. Yes, it is basically a little diner. This is not the place for ambience. But if you want a ton of food for an extremely reasonable price - don't miss it. I always get the pierogi with cooked onions. But the soups are great and the combination platters... well, I defy you to finish the whole thing in one sitting and walk out under your own power. Give it a try. You'll be back.

I've been to most of the spots, and let me tell you this is the best breakfast/brunch money can buy in the east village. The eggs are cooked proper and the corned beef hash is straight butter in your mouth. Additionally, the service is good - which is very rare for an establishment in this area. The waitresses aren't space cadets and bring your order out promptly and make sure your cup of coffee is topped off. The atmosphere carries no frills and is never packed, hands down this is the best brunch for a bite to eat in the area,

Sure there are some other restaurants down the street, but this has the best pieorgi (try their special pierogi) and kielbasa. And, you can see a movie right across the street after dinner. And they're open til 11!
