“I don't want to come back to the USSR”
Reviewed 28 April 2014 via mobile

Awful. Ugly place, disgusting donuts, undrinkable coffee. I really don't know why people are rating as good this place. I think they want to suffer.

“Crazy unmissable russian place”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Crazy for the really mean people at the counter, proper soviet feeling, almost got scared by the counter lady the first time in. BUT it's a genuinely true Russian experience, very soviet feeling, and the pishki are AMAZING!!

Can't leave St petersburg without going there!

“Back to the USSR”
Reviewed 10 April 2014

One of the places in the city where you can go back to the USSR and feel its atmosphere. This place was famous in the Soviet Union among the people of the previous generation and it is really famous right now in modern Russia among the people of a new generation. It's really cool! Besides that you can try the most delicious donuts (or "Pyshki" in Russian) in the city and feel nostalgiс sipping coffee fixed with milk. And all that at a cheap rate! I think that you just have to visit this place if you are in the city!!!

“Authentic Russian Donuts!”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 via mobile

Wow! The locals come here for donuts and coffee made with condensed milk... sugar overload! But damn, they are amazing and cheap!
Greasy, covered in icing sugar, and simply delicious, these little rings of joy are scrumptously washed down with the interesting concoction of condensed milk coffee. All in all, it makes for an interesting experience, and 1 that certainly makes you feel local!
