Time Out says:

To have survived the hipification of Billyburg’s Bedford Street is no small feat so this physically bland, diner-style eatery must be doing something right. That something is serving up cheap large portions of filling Polish eats, like stuffed cabbage, beef goulash, kielbasa, and pierogi, as well as American favorites including sandwiches —from hero to club—and all-day breakfast items. Local Poles and neighborhood kids converge on this place, open on weekdays only. For a morning kick, get a freshly squeezed juice with health-conscious ingredients like kale, celery and ginger.

NY Mag says:

Weekday-only Kasia’s is one of a handful of stalwart Polish restaurants in Williamsburg that has survived the neighborhood’s population shift, primarily drawing a faithful, older Polish clientele rather than scenesters with a blintz jones. The front room, outfitted with a diner counter, faux wood tables and beige-tiled walls, sometimes hosts a few cacophonous conversations at once, but leads into a slightly more subdued room in back. Meat and fried foods make up a good portion of the menu, which joins burgers and sandwiches with Polish dishes like kielbasa, pierogies and stuffed cabbage. The fried pierogies are a treat, stuffed with meat, potato or sweet cheese, and best enjoyed with both sour cream and apple sauce. Chicken cutlets are juicy, and beef goulash holds tender chunks of beef alongside potato pancakes, which are nicely crisped around the edges, but mushier toward the middle. Among the all-day selection of eggs, pancakes and other breakfast items, the sweet, raisin-y babka french toast is best for those who believe in starting the day with dessert.
