If you are into regional cuisine, stop by this place. It's not expensive, tasty and well decorated. We had 3 types of their specialty, ~80 uah each, (small dumplings, served with sour cream) and we were very satisfied.

We began with vareniki of course - with mushrooms and potato. Ones with sour cream were taste. Next ordered Ukrainian borscht with pampushki with garlic was excellent! Also beef Stroganoff and pork steak were very taste!

good place to taste the local version of a sort of dumplings, which will be pretty new for western visitors; they are of a very good quality; the place is clean and in a walking distance to the main pedestrian street

Considering it is in a busy street this cafe has managed to create a nice atmosphere. Very good menu. Local cuisine at very good prices. One should try the pilmeni. Its a type of ravioli and just great. Would recommend it for a quick lunch
