One might ask, “What is Hipster Polish Food in America?” Well, I just invented this term after visiting my favorite Polish cafe in Brooklyn – Zabka.
Zabka is an Eastern European Coffee Lounge in Brooklyn. Here you can taste traditional Polish pierogies, eggs with kielbasa, smoked salmon, and country beef. The cafe is popular among hipsters of the area.
Not only does the food in Zabka taste well (the cafe owner himself crafts the authentic dishes), but the place is filled with good vibes. One can easily notice the clean and comfortable condition of the place. An outstanding Yelp rating, 4.5 stars out of 5, is just additional proof of the aforementioned statement. Polish food in such a format seems to become more and more popular. Below is the list of 5 things you might want to learn about Hipster Polish Food in America.

Oftentimes, in order to attract more customers and make them feel comfortable, owners of Polish cafes can organize events in their places.

Back in the days when I lived in Belarus, I ate a lot of Polish food on a weekly basis. Polish food is the taste of my childhood. I always feel great when I visit Zabka or any other Polish cafe.
