This place deserves a 0 rating! Since the moment you cross the door to order you can feel the rudeness from both Russian ladies in the counter. Impacient, rude and entitled. Let's not forget you're running a customer oriented business. After being treated terrible we...got only 2 coffees since we were rushed to decide what we wanted. No suggestions just impatience. And by the way I had to trash the coffees because they were NASTY tasting and Cold as the Russian treatment we got in this place. Honestly stay away! Its been rated as Rude since 2014 or earlier. Wish I read this comments before going.More

In The Richmond district, they like to celebrate Little Russia and Russian life in the Richmond. They have some grocery stores and San Francisco residents and tourists...and Russian people can celebrate the traditions of Russian food with Cinderella! They have an American bakery with standards...that you might see at an Italian bakery in SF...but they have Russian cafe bistro items like borscht soup in different tastes as well as PIROSHKIS..these are sold at various stores..this could be one of the best places to get a fresh Russian piroshki..with beef or cabbage--fried or baked...a piroshki is not more than an Asian dough roll with pork or a Spanish empanada with various insides..this is food! Celebrating Russian life is Cinderella in the Richmond..it's on a quiet street and you will have to find it.More

Daughter brought me here for brunch. Yes there was a wait but worth every minute of it. Wonderful baked goods that you just cant get everywhere. Good sandwiches and coffee drink selection is very good. Simply a great experience. Has a small outside seating area...also worth the wait. I would give it 6 stars if I could.More

For a bakery it has one of the largest menus I’ve seen. Breakfast, Lunch, coffees and backed goods. Outdoor seating with great atmosphere and location. The staff was fast and friendly but the most important part is the food and coffee was delicious. Will return...to this location the next time I am in San Francisco.More

Stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of Lonely Planet. Lots of choice. We had Borscht soup and a Piroshki. Would recommend.

Inexpensive, casual, mostly sidewalk dining and the ambience is nothing unusual. But the food is magnificent. Fresh, vibrant with flavor, and as authentic as my grandmother used to make. A large variety of hearty soups and classic entrees that you can wash down with beer...or sweet nonalcoholic kompot. Get a great meal for $15 here.More

Depending on who is cooking the piroshski is good but sometimes overly peppered and dry. The mushroom barley soup is flavorless unfortunately. Someone changed the recipe.

This was so yummy! I loved the Pelimini (like dumplings) and their bakery section also was amazing. Although the place is small, it is a real treat.

This is one of the best bakeries around. It has Russian food, coffees and lots of pastry. You have to go early as there is always a line and the people who work there are very nice. I stop there every time I’m in the...city. This place is a must!More
