After another long walk through Kiev I arrived in the afternoon in the quarter of Podil next to the Dnjepr. I wasn't that hungry and felt more like an uplifting drink. The 'Nikolay' looked just the right place for it with a long counter, where I asked, if they had a sparkling wine. The waiter said yes and after a... More

This cafe offers mostly pies in the Russian culinary tradition, you can also get coffee, tea or broth to go with your pie. The pies, both sweet and savory, are very good. Recommended.

It is excellent place for pie-eating :) pies for any taste: salted and sweet (the choice is rather big). Coffe, tea, milkshakes, infusions, alcohol, etc. Prices are rather high but it worth paying as pies are super delicious.

The place is tidy and very nice. There are a lot of pies both sweet and not. Food is great and the espresso is the real Italian one.

This place is quite pleasant any time of the day. The only thing that I would wish is that they would open early. Always freshly baked and you can enjoy the pies either during a casual meeting or a light business discussion. Music is not so loud. Parking in the area is a problem but worth the search. Give it...

We used to be permanent customers of Nikolay ever since they opened. But just like with the majority of Kyiv eateries, they were only decent right after the opening. Our three latest experiences ranged from disappointment to frustration, and we have finally stopped using them. The last drop was when they sold us heated cherry pies instead of freshly baked...
