Since 1953, the Cinderella Bakery has crafted home-style Russian baked goods from recipes handed down through the generations. Light and dark rye breads join other bakery items such as piroshkis, pirogis, strudels, and Napoleon Cake, which stands two heads shorter than other cakes. Available for take-out or savoring at the bakery's street-side tables, café fare covers the savory side of things with specialties such as the Russian-style crepes known as blinchiki, which are stuffed with caviar, mushrooms, or sweet cheese, as well as other hearty dishes such as Siberian-style salmon pies and beef stroganoff. Cinderella Bakery caters special events, and fills stores throughout the Bay area with packages of its baked treats, each emblazoned with its signature nesting doll logo.
