Cinderella Bakery has standard breakfast items like french toast and egg plates, but what you’re really here for is the Russian classics. We like the syrniki - sweet, dense cheese pancakes with a crisp outside that taste dessert for breakfast. But if you’re more in the mood for savory, get the potato vareniki dumplings. On nice mornings, their sidewalk seating is a good place to relax - until the fog takes over the Richmond.
