The favorite spot in the city

They are famous for Kibinai (some ethnic karaimai food) and chicken broth, absolute must while walking around on winter days :) Service is always suberb, with family friendly touch to it. Recommended! Their deserts are just mind blowing.

Since there are not many bakeries in Vilnius, I come here quite often. Cakes are really good here. The problem of this place is extremely slow service: it would be ok, if you were sitting and waiting near the table, but all this time you are standing in the queue. And it is killing, because all the beautiful cakes are... More

It was lovely to be able to step in from the cold and warm up with a nice, hot drink and a scrumptious dessert. It seems a lot of locals also stop in to take away sweet and savory treats.

Winderful bakery shop. I like the central location and the decoration style. Very tasty cakes and kibinai- those are the pastries with various filling nocely displayed on the counter. By far not the cheapest.

Very nice, sweet place to have coffee on Sunday morning! So take time to relax to have some very nice pieces of cake (Napoleon or Honey cake) and enjoy your time in Vilnius!!!

I admit that I have been there several times. But that is just because it is convenient close to where I am when in Vilnius. It is NOT because this is a top 10 place to go when in Vilnius. It is really not. This is a very ordinary café with nice sweet stuff and Kibine. That is meat or... More

We found Pinavija an excellent cafe which provided delicious and much needed sustenance on a very cold day. With friendly and efficient staff and an amusingly decorated interior, this place is very welcoming. We had very well made coffee accompanied by delcious savoury pastries called Kibinai. Mine eas filled with lamb; my wife's with chicken and mushroom. Both were excellent.... More

Pinavija is a charming cafe with a nice selection of sweet and savory pastries. Overall, it's just an average cafe with nothing particularly special about it. The other TripAdvisor reviews are a bit over-the-top on this place.
