The value easily makes up for the hot and cold service. I have never had bad food here in three years. Even the more adventurious things I order always surprise, duck, rainbow trout when they have it, stuffed cabbage, each one is delicious (as are the classic Polish dishes) as are many of the home-made desserts. Now the service is hot and cold but never rude, any problems I have had are, in my estimation, due to language differences and a good faith attempt to rectify any mistakes is normally made. That said the brunch service is sloooooooooow as can be. Now maybe they are trying to be nice and let people sit, a curteosy so far removed from NY culture that maybe I just don't know that I am being afforded a rare luxury. On the other hand 2hrs+ in a diner atmosphere (bright and clean, nothing against the aesthetics, esp. outside in Spring/Summer) for some eggs is a bit much IMO. All in all, the food + value (cheapest on Montague IMO) + variety makes this a winner if you can put up with some service flaws. Soups are good (peppery in some cases but I like that), salads are big, fish/meat dishes are good and phenomenal value. Honest home cooked food, a rare commodity.

I'm Polish and I love their food! BETTER than mother makes (sorry mom). She eats there too. LOL My Polish friends love it, my husband, his mother & grandmother... We all love their food! Duck is yummy, so is the salmon. Pierogi, Nalesniki, beef goulash, beef stroganoff are just like homemade. Their soups are rich, thick and hearty - especially the barley soup. Really warms you up in the wintertime. Deserts are good but let's face it in the Polish kitchen the main meal is the highlight. Desert is an afterthought. The service is good and gets better if you speak Polish : )

The perogies are delicious. The rest of the menu is definatly inexpensive. THe service can be standoff-ish but it not rude at all. Definatly recommend.

This is a fun little place. The food is great - very authentic - and make sure you don't pass on the pierogies, which are the best I've ever had. The soups and salads are great, too. Lots of vegetarian options, despite Eastern Europe's reputation for being meat-heavy food. Great place to go for lunch if you're on Jury Duty, too!
