While the owner of this restaurant hails from the city of Zakopane in the south of Poland, much of his menu falls under the rubric of American diner classics: omelettes, hamburgers and grilled cheese are all available at prices that seem as though they’ve remained untouched since the Soviet era. Take a cue from the regulars (and everyone in this relatively cheery restaurant is a regular), and venture into the Polish part of the menu with crêpes filled with light farmer’s cheese or a plate of crispy, oversize potato pancakes served with what you know to expect in an old-school Central European restaurant—applesauce and sour cream—and the one thing you don’t: a smile.
