Welcome, In 1925, Mr. Pilecki built a 31 room gentleman's hotel with a rathskeller at 2990 Yemans Street. The hotel was home to their rich customs and trades to the city of Hamtramck. In the 1940's and 50's Hamtramck's population surged to over 50,000 as more immigrants arrived to man the city's factories. The Bakerstreet car line took people north and south on Joseph Campau, which was then the second busiest shopping district in the nation. Walking through the neighborhood at that time, you could feel the hospitality and smell the fine cooking typical of the European villages. In 1976, Mr. Pilecki's cellar beer garden became the Polish Village Café. His tradition of welcoming immigrants and their descendents continues to this day.
