“Yummy, cheap pies”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

Pos: the pies are great (cabbage is my favourite). It's fairly quick if you're in a hurry (as we were to get to the Hermitage). It's also pretty cheap. Tip: grab the menu on the counter- it's in English, all the labels on the pies are in Russian but if you show them on the menu it makes life a lot easier.

Neg: They run out of pies quite quickly. They didn't have many sweet ones left and we managed to get the last slice of the fish pie!

“Simple traditional russian salty or sweet pies and very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This Stolle chain(?) offers several salty pies like salmon or meat and sweet like apple, jam pies. Sizing for pies is simple 125g piece/250g pc (8.8oz)/1kg piece (2 lb). Prices were very reasonable. Drinks available tea/coffee or some soft drinks. So selection is limited.
We visited this particular location and it contains few tables, so it is also small cafe. On a normal late Wed.afternoon tables were full and lot of people bought their pies to go. We had some meat, salmon and apple pies with tea. Surprisingly tea was German. Pies were very good and tasty, and apple pie also as a dessert. Apple pie structure is bit different and is not crunchy, but soft and moisty. Thanks to fast sales, pies are fresh.
There might be a small language barrier, but you can recognize jam/apple/salmon/meat etc and if you do not want ask ingredients/recipy/which jam, then service runs very smoothly.
