Great fresh food! Fresh bread with the hot borscht. The ground beef and potato vereniki have quite a bit of dough but lots of flavor and filling! The fresh raspberry juice in the summer is delicious!

We ate here several times during our stay and each time the food was fresh and delicious. The service was a little slow but only due to the food being made fresh and the value was fantastic.
