We got several items here for a light lunch after a morning at Golden Gate Park. Everything we had was tasty and fresh. There were several vegetarian items we enjoyed.

Had the most unreal lunch here - it was light and healthy, with lots of nice looking treats too! Huge line (we were there on a Sunday) but it moved quickly and wasn’t a long wait on food. Only issue was not really enough seating...More

Great little bakery with very good range of pastries and other dishes, mostly with a authentic Russian influence/flavour. Excellent coffee too. Good value for money. Some inside seating but mostly seats outside so if foggy bring something to keep you warm!

We love Cinderella. It is a little bakery with few tables outside to enjoy delusion food. We had this time borscht, cheese fritters, coffee, Napoleon, salad . All was tasty, very fresh and not expensive. Lovely little spot for Russian and European style food. Recommended.
