Hamtramck's Polish Village Café
This little restaurant is located on a residential street called Yemans off Joseph Campau Ave in Hamtramck. Back in the 1920's, when the Bakerstreet trolley came up and down this part of the city it was the nation's second busiest retail area! This building where the Polish Village Café sits used to be a boarding house for immigrants and in the basement was the rathskeller. It still doles out some of the most wonderful Polish vittles in the state. Think comfort food: pierogis, potato pancakes, stuffed cabbage, kielbasa and authentic duck blood soup. They have a full bar, they're open on Sundays, and you can watch the Tigers. No credit cards, they accept cash only.
