With Asian and Western fast-food joints having taken over much of Warsaw, pierogi have been left as one of the last bastions of traditional Polish cuisine. A growing number of restaurants known as pierogarnie are specializing in these dumplings, which take time and skill to prepare. Here is a selection of pierogarnie popular with Warsaw residents. Despite their name, they serve up other dishes as well as pierogi.

Bar-O-Metr
Located at 63 Światowida St. near the Nowodwory bus terminus in the Białołęka district, Bar-O-Metr is a tiny restaurant with self-service. Customers can watch their meals being prepared. Bar-O-Metr serves pierogi and pancakes, most of them vegetarian. Smoking is banned.

Pierogowy Dworek
This large, pierogi-themed restaurant is in the Praga Południe district at 2a Brygady Pościgowej St. It has a summer patio. On the menu you will find a wide variety of pierogi, pancakes and soups as well as meals for children.
