Surrounded by the city of Detroit, Hamtramck may be the best destination for Michigan’s best Polish cuisine. But, that’s not the only place you’ll find it. Look below for some of our top picks in Southeast Michigan including Polish Village Café, Polonia, Amadeus Café and Restaurant and many more.



2934 Yemans St
Hamtramck, MI 48212
(313) 873-8432

There’s a reason Anthony Bourdain filmed an episode of his “No Reservations” series here. Polonia serves the best Polish food in a city known for exactly that.


Lila’s Pierogi

27811 5 Mile Road
Livonia, MI 48154
(734) 721-7444

Have to have pierogi? Remember how your grandmother used to make them? Lila’s is a trip back to your childhood. Over 15 variations or pierogi, plus stuffed cabbage and baked sauerkraut.



1744 Biddle Avenue
Wyandotte, MI 48192
(734) 283-3530

It’s quality has not diminished over the years. A bite or two will transport you to your childhood. Order the “Hungry Pole”, a sampler of just about everything on the menu.


Polish Village Café

2990 Yemans St.
Hamtramck, MI 48212
(313) 874-5726

This is just like grandma made it. For some of us, literally.  Be warned – you will dream of these pierogies. Don’t hesitate to try the dill pickle soup – sounds weird; tastes amazing. Not a ton of space, but it’s a cozy/romantic ambiance; great for a date.  The price is right, but don’t forget to bring cash. They don’t take credit here.


Amadeus Cafe & Restaurant

122 E Washington St
Ann Arbor, MI 48104
(734) 665-8767

Affordable and delicious, but you might want to make a reservation. Menu features comfort foods and meat stews from Poland/Hungary – be sure to  stay for dessert.

Three Brothers Restaurant

8825 General Dr
Plymouth, MI 48170
(734) 416-3393

A family-friendly atmosphere. Top picks are the corned beef, stuffed pork chops, and fabulous homemade chicken noodle soup – huge bowls, too. Can’t pick something? Get the Polish platter.
