Fourteen types of pierogi are offered at this Loop storefront—and that’s about all. There’s little ambience, little interaction with staff and no other food options, but how do the dumplings fare? Like most pierogi, they’re doughy little things, and the fillings are properly seasoned (those with kraut are among the more robust). Dessert pierogi are the most mysterious offerings—the menu states that you’ll “never know” what type (or mix) of fruit you’ll find in each one.

If heaven is a hole in the wall Polish joint, we should all be on our best behavior so we don't get sent to hell (which is probably a particularly greasy Taco Bell). It's not difficult to figure out what you should order at Perogi Heaven—each dumpling comes stuffed with meat, potato or spinach and can be topped with sour cream and bacon bits. If you're looking for a light lunch, this isn't the place, but if you're craving perogis and a bowl of borscht, there's almost nowhere else you'll find them in the Loop.
