Had the Kharcho soup in a chilly day. WOW. YUMMMMMM. Also had the avacado and turkey sandwich which was pretty good as well. I would eat here everyday if I were staying nearby.

We got several items here for a light lunch after a morning at Golden Gate Park. Everything we had was tasty and fresh. There were several vegetarian items we enjoyed.

Great little bakery with very good range of pastries and other dishes, mostly with a authentic Russian influence/flavour. Excellent coffee too. Good value for money. Some inside seating but mostly seats outside so if foggy bring something to keep you warm!
