DRM has captured the hearts of the St. Charles and surrounding community with its delicious eastern European cuisine. The cafe was voted One of the Best Delicatessens in the 2018 Kane County Best of the Fox Reader's Choice Awards and also "Best Polish Food" in Chicagoland in 2017 by the Daily Herald just months after opening its doors. The cafe offers exceptional catering for your small and large work and social events in breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu items.
The hot entree lunch station is served cafeteria style and is offered Monday through Saturday from 11:00 am -2:00 pm. Our hot lunch entrees include everything from handmade pierogies, stuffed cabbage rolls, smoked Polish sausage and sauerkraut, and their popular potato pancakes. You can also find other, unique chef’s specials on the menu for a delicious surprise!
Select gourmet sandwiches boast a European flare, like the DRM reuben made with smoked Polish ham and others like the German schnitzel sandwich, and traditional Polish sausage sandwich...all which make an excellent pairing to traditional and homemade soups and salads. But DRM does not limit themselves to only European sandwiches…you can find the Cubano, Fig & Brie, and their most popular homemade pastrami, homemade corned beef reuben, and their Nonno Paul Italian sandwich on the menu as well! For those seeking lighter cuisine or gluten free cuisine, stop in for a one of a kind salad, including Jo’s Green goddess salad and their best selling pear and apple salad…all come with homemade dressings!
DRM is now open earlier and offers breakfast items including three breakfast sandwiches and a European breakfast plate along with various European pastries like their one of a kind strudel. Dine in the beautiful modern cafe area or take your food to go to enjoy and share at work or at home.
Shop a vast selection of imported goods from European countries such as Poland, Germany, Austria, Lithuania, Belgium, and beyond. DRM has searched and found the very best, quality products including dried herbs, spices, coffee, teas, pickled vegetables, chocolates, and more. Specialty items such as import home decor, handmade table linens, candles, ornaments, and unique gifts and baskets can be purchased during the holiday seasons.
Prepared soups, salads, fresh breads, and pastries are made daily. The deli selection of Polish, German, and Hungarian meats, cheeses, and sausages is not to be missed!
Our mission here at DRM is simple- to provide you with a truly authentic European dining and shopping experience. We value quality cuisine and exceptional service with the goal of having you return and share your experience with family and friends. More than anything, we understand that food evokes such a special memory. We pride our cooking to be reminiscent of our babcia's cooking. We hope that your experience here at DRM transports you to another place and time where memories of sitting around the dinner table with family of friends and celebrating the traditions of your childhood are remembered. We strive to provide an exceptional warm meal and infuse the shop with all the sights, sounds, fragrances, and foods of the wonderfully diverse countries of eastern Europe and beyond.
Pull up a seat at our table and share in our story...and welcome to DRM!
Joanna & Dan Migo
The Migo family immigrated from Poland to the United States in 1985. With a suitcase in hand and big dreams for their future they embarked on an incredible journey made possible by the sponsorship of Saint John Newman Church in Saint Charles. The people of this community opened their hearts and homes to the Migo family, teaching them English, providing meals, friendship, and fellowship.
Daniel Migo has served the Saint Charles community for several years alongside his mother providing exceptional care for the elderly through this home care agency and Halina's Senior Services. The residences of Halina's Senior Services are beautiful and private care homes situated in downtown Saint Charles. They continue to be owned and operated by the Migo family today.
Daniel's dream has always been to open an eastern European restaurant and grocery store to share with his community the culture and cuisine of his childhood experiences. Daniel is passionate about cooking and providing hospitality to others, and he has never forgotten where he came from or the generous opportunity the Saint Charles community provided for him and his family so many years ago. This is his way of giving back a piece of his culture to the community.
And so...with the help of his wife Jo-Jo, this creative and ambitious couple are excited to bring an authentic, ever -changing, and unique dining and shopping experience to the Saint Charles community.
