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.
