  • try the Russian honey cake. it's dreamy
  • Get the open face sea salt bagel with tomato and an order of pierogis and share. Grapefruit juice to wash it down. Great little Eastern European place. Amazing details on the bar.
  • The gem salad is simple and delicious. Wonderful chunks of avocado and pumpkin seeds.
  • Everything is insanely delicious! I'm obsessed w/the honey cake. It's light & delicate and I'm pretty sure if the whole cake was in front of me I would devour it! The kale sandwich is also fantastic!
  • The bagels are the best I've had in SF. Everything has been terrific.
  • A must do. A hidden gem of foods from Budapest, Hungary, and Eastern European specialties that taste like home.

  • The bagels are among the best in the city and worth ordering!
  • Adorable china, crisp perogies and the best savory scone. I really love the attention to detail and flavor balance here.
  • This place definitely has a unique atmosphere, very similar to european cafes. The personal is very cheerful. Try their bagel with smoked salmon (open-sided for more fish).
  • The pastrami/Reuben is a revelation.
  • Don't say no to the divine Russian honey cake ($6)you absolutely have to get this beautiful multilayered cake. Nine fluffy layers. Its a wonder.
  • I adore her potato knish ($8)just try to find a better one in the city, so flaky and savory. And yes, buttery.
  • It's like being in a Woody Allen moviein the best possible way.
  • Deliciously creamy almond cappuccinos, never a crowd and music and ambience that takes you back in time.
