It is an extremely popular regular food event. There are line ups to be seated at the classic padded metal chairs and veneer tables so familiar with church halls. As well, there is a second line up for take away. They prepare small carry out boxes of just Perogy. That line is often out the door as well. There is just something so comforting about the tender soft homemade dough stuffed with Potato, doused in Sourcream that keeps people coming back and willing to wait in line.
This month there was not a line at all. I felt rather bad about that. I peeped in the quiosk at the doorway where the take out boxes had been prepared but sat waiting too close to closing. The lovely lady serving me my 10 count of Perogy commented to me that they were wondering where everyone was. There was a small burst of eaters around 7pm. I suppose one factor is that with the late evenings, people are eating later and aren't arriving in droves at 6pm. The real reason, I think, is that last summer, they did not have the Perogy dinner in the summer months. They did not have one in July. You can check with certainty on their website that they have on their main Cathedral website, specific to the Friday Perogy sale.

I prefer the classic reason for coming. The Cabbage Rolls are vegetarian if you want them but I find rice in side a bit mushy. As you can see on Dom's plate that 1 of them had exploded so you can see the rice. He likes the Kielbasa so I think that is why he gets this plate. Well, that and he knows that I will give him a Perogy toward the end when I realise that I have forgotten that 10 Perogy is alot of food.
