Polish food in PDX or Willamette Valley?

Does anyone know of any restaurants in the Portland area or in the Willamette Valley that serve Polish food?

  1. You might look into Two Brothers Cafe and Grill at 829 SE 39th Avenue in PDX. I can't think of anything local closer to the mark.

    1. It's not a restaurant, but there've been a few reports that St Stanislaus on N. Interstate in Portland has offerings sometimes. If you search on this board you'll see a couple of references:

      1. There are two Polish food carts in the pod at 9th and Alder. Tried one today and had some pretty tasty pierogi. Worth getting back to try some other dishes.

        1. No Polish food in the Salem area that I know of. There's Novak's Hungarian Restaurant in Albany.

          1. The Java Man on SW 5th and Taylor downtown has pierogi, golubtzi and pelmeni. I believe the owners are Russian but the food is relatively close to home. I'm not positive they're still open since I haven't been in a couple years, but their number is 279-0298

            1. Thanks for all of these great recommendations. My 4th grader son is studying Poland and I'd like to be able to introduce him to the cuisine.

                There is a fabulous Polish sausage and European meat deli in Tigard called Victor's. The owner/sausage maker is a little ornery, but he is generous with tastes of the different sausages. The shelves in the deli are full of jars of saurkrauts and other delights straight from Poland.

                  While I agree with the assessment, note that Victor's does not serve hot foods.

              2. Krakow Koffeehouse on N. Interstate serves a great assortment of homemade pierogies, kielbasa, and cabbage rolls. Also, down the block, Grandpa's Cafe (open Friday evening and Sunday afternoon) is a deli/cafe that sells all kinds of polish meals.
