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!

I went to this Bakery for lunch and hand the soup that had lamb on it. The croissants and the coffee were also too good. Value for money and good bakery products.

We had the cream horn, some cookies and a strudel. All were fabulous and well worth the wait and the stop
