Taste of Poland Pop-Up

Three days a week, Legal Grounds stays open late and quietly changes from local coffee shop to a dinner pop-up run by Taste of Poland. Familiar from their food truck days at 6th Borough Market, Taste of Poland found they were getting positive reactions and return customers so decided to look for more ways to get their food to customers and formed a partnership with Legal Grounds.
