Laura Szczepanek decided it was about time to answer that question.
Szczepanek, who has been catering Polish food since she was “knee high to my Busia” is opening an authentic Polish restaurant in the coming weeks on (where else?) the West Side of Grand Rapids.
The Polka Pops Café, located at 634 Stocking Ave. NW, will soft launch with limited hours in the former Marc Stewart’s Guest House space on Nov. 11, with a formal grand opening celebration following the holidays in January.
“Nobody around here is doing Polish food the right way,” she said, although there are Polish meats available at several West Side markets.
