This place is wonderful. The web page shows a dining room, which is non-existent. They have a couple of seats inside and some cafe tables on the sidewalk. Just adds to the fun, but could be a bummer in cold weather. Pelimeni soup is my favorite,we bring some home for later. Yummy

Best lattes in the city. The friendly staff behind the counter brighten my day. This is my go-to, routine location. Don't limit yourself to the array of baked goods in the display - look beyond for loaves of bread, bulk coffee, grilled sandwiches, Russian soups, dumplings, to-go prepared items and other hearty fare.
Breakfast options are pastries, bagels and baked goods. Soups, pelmeni, grilled sandwiches and Russian crepes will cover you for lunch. The well-priced dinner menu includes beef stroganoff, lamb shank and chicken a la kiev.

This is a great spot when the items are fresh and just out the oven.. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the pastries are to die for! I always bring my nephew here for cookies and cupcakes and he never wants to leave... Keep up the good work!

I was born in Russia and even though I have lived most of my life in America I have still eaten mostly Russian food from my family, my friends, their families, and of course the few Russian restaurants on the west coast. As far as food goes, this place is as homey and fantastic as you can possibly find. The Borscht is just how i remember it, so is the rye bread, and especially the Kvas (which is pretty hard to find). Everything I have ever gotten in the restaurant has been amazing. The Service, however, is not the best and i think that you can mostly attribute that to them having (what seems like) only 1 waiter who is there pretty much all day. If you go there in the afternoon he will be attentive and pleasant, but by the evening he seems worn out and a bit out of phase. I would not say the service is rude by any means, but i can understand how it can come across as such at times.
Overall, if you want to try real, great, homemade Russian food, this is most definitely the place to go.

We love the food! We have never ordered anything we didn't like! We have never been to Russia, but the food seems very authentic and most of the other customers speak Russian when ordering. My favorite is the piroski and borscht. It is true that they can close at random times, but we have learned to have an alternative restaurant just in case....but it doesn't happen very often. Also, you can try calling ahead of time to have them reserve specific menu items because they sometimes run out later in the day.
