No joke, this place is awesome.
It’s an Eastern European-inspired cafe/eatery in Hayes Valley.
If the staff dressed in full on 1950’s retro attire + over sized pointy glasses isn’t picture worthy enough, there’s also tons of natural lighting illuminating the beautifully baked goods placed on a large marble counter.
And YESSS. You read that right. Everyone here is dressed up in super cute 20th century outfits.
You can even watch them bake up a storm right behind the kitchen counter. If that isn’t Insta-worthy, I don’t know what is.
Basically, it’s one of the cutest cafes I’ve ever been to AND it’s a perfect spot for my weekly coffee date with Katey of Yurkstyle.com.
Not only is the place visually appealing, so is the food.
The lox bagel is one of my favs:
You get to choose your bagel. Then they top it with smoked salmon, cream cheese, pickled shallots and dill. (open faced $11/ closed $8)
But if there’s ONE thing you should get here, it’s ALL about the Russian Honey Cake!! ($7)
You get layers on layers on layers of cake and caramelized honey cream in between.
It’s light, fluffy and flavorful without being too sweet.
Side: This was featured on 7×7 on their annual list of 100 things to eat before you die.
Which means, you gotta come try it.
No doubt, their house-made granola is delish. But honestly, for $7 I’d rather spend it on another piece of that honey cake!
So. To sum it all up, if you love Pinterest-Instagram worthy places, then this place is for you!
They also offer a ton of other lunch items like salads, soups, sandwiches, and baked delights.
