Where Buffalo Goes to be polish

About Us!

Our business started with Chrusciki Bakery which was established in 1987 at the historic Broadway Market. In 2017, the Chrusciki family decided to start a second business to focus on their family’s homemade pierogi, they called it “Simply Pierogi”! In 2019, we decided to expand our family love for Polish food and open a restaurant that could encompass all of our favorite Polish foods, drinks, and tasty treats under on roof! The European Lounge was born and includes our longstanding Chrusciki Bakery, Simply Pierogi Polish Kitchen, & Sto Lat Bar all conventialy located in one shared open space. There is something for everyone to enjoy at The European Lounge!

Chrusciki Bakery is offering a full case of delicious pastries, gelato, and a full coffee menu. Simply Pierogi Polish Kitchen is a fast-casual restaurant concept serving traditional Polish cuisine like build your own Pierogi Bowls, build your own Polish Platter, soups, salads, & Pierogi Hoagies. 

Sto Lat Bar is a full-service bar, offering signature cocktails, local draft beers, Polish beers & liquors.  We also have a delicious dinner menu with a variety of European style dishes. Dinner service is available at 5pm daily.
