    Really authentic old school NYC diner. Their eggs on home made corned beef hash are great, as well as their pancakes. Leave room for a cream cheese and blueberry blintz.

  • What's Good Here

    Many entrees come with a choice of soup or vegetable. You can get veggies elsewhere. You must try the Ukrainian borscht - another delicious specialty.

    Hungry? Get the combination plate. Get everything fried + white bread for a polish twist, everything boiled + black bread and "Kasha" aka Buckwheat for 100% Ukrainian.

    Best counter in the east village. Also, it's tiny, and old school. When it's slow, it's quiet—and that's heavenly.

    Great little eastern euro bar-seating-only joint. The type of place where you order something, the guy says "how about meatloaf instead," and you say "Ok."

    Pierogi all the way! Don't forget the sour cream. Fried onions on the side is best. Otherwise, too much onion going on.

    It's 6 am and I'm literally dreaming about the fried pierogis I last had here a couple of days ago. The onions they're served with HAVE to be fried in crack, they're so addicting. Delicious!
