To me the fundamental difference between Donuts & Pyshki was that Pyshki was much lighter. When they are warm you tend to gobble up quite a few of them at one go. The first time we came to Pyshechnaya, we ordered 2 pieces & a coffee per head. The 2 pieces disappeared very quickly. So had to go back & order some more. Then realized that most people were ordering around 4-5 pieces per head. When we visited again we ordered 5 per head!
The coffee & Pyshki at Pyshechnaya is a great pit stop. The place is busy & you will need to cue up for your turn. Most people are regulars. If the cue is long & you are more than 1 person, then it might make sense to split up so that some could grab a table & the rest could grab the Pyshki & the coffee.
The counter ladys are not the friendliest but very efficient.
Not sure if this should rate within the top 3 restaurants in St Petersburg but it is surely an essential St Petersburg experience.
