About the Restaurant

For over 30 years, Café Polonez has been a family-run restaurant in the heart of Toronto’s Polish community. The name comes from the French word "polonaise," which is a ceremonial Polish dance similar to a waltz. Café Polonez is known for their homemade lightly-breaded schnitzel, alongside plenty of other authentic Polish cuisine such as herring and pierogis. Other Eastern European dishes on the menu at this affordable cafe include a specialty Hungarian-style potato pancake stuffed with goulash. At the back of the restaurant, a framed landscape picture pays tribute to Poland’s capital city of Warsaw, while the front exterior brick and street side patio give this cafe a truly European feel.
