We were told about this restaurant when we were on a tour in St. Petersburg and found the restaurant the next day so we could try their renowned yeast donuts! They were worth all the time it took to find them. Melt in your mouth (the little bit of greasiness was well worth it)!!!!! YUM! Brought back memories of donuts my mom and grandma used to make.

Good and very cheap donuts. Nothing special though. A whole bunch of TripAdvisor people standing in a long line. Dont really see what the fuzz is all about.

I dropped to the place familiar from the student days.
The 'pyshki' are there,quite tasty, but not piping-hot as they used to be...and the service is really slow. Only green tea was offered, which is not a good drink for this dish.
Yes, the wrapping paper to pick the pyshki is still on the tables , but part of the atmosphere is gone, though many tourists were there to try'the specialty'. I should probably try again on a frosty winter day ))

We had no trouble finding this cafe, it is on a side street just off the main through fare Nevsky pros.
We joined the small queue and asked for 7 'pushki' plus a coffee. We ate at the table where the ginger cat was sat and had a lovely half hour or so before we began sight seeing for the day.
The donuts were different to what we were used to in the UK/Australia but myself and my partner enjoyed them and ate them all. We would have gone back if we had stayed longer in St.P.

Original St.-Petersburg doughnuts! You must visit it, this place is a legend! Don't be afraid of a crowd there, ask for at least five doughnuts and a coffee.
