An amazing selection of freshly baked large pies on offer. Generally, these are not hot when served but great to have with a bowl of clear soup. Fast service, good vibes. Also known as Pyrohova “Mykola”

Incompetent and rude waiters. Pies were cold and when asked for re-heating we were advised that pies going to be warm anyways. Would never go again and would not recommend.

Even though the prices are a bit high for Kiev it's totally worth it! They have a great variety of pies - meat, fish, berries, poppy etc. etc... and they all are tasty. The service is also great.
I highly recommend to try it!

Found this local Pie Bakery and Coffee shop. Nikolay. All types on this amazing counter Sweet, Savory. Had both of course . Raspberry was perfect. Minimal added sugar so that the fresh fruity tartness still came through. Great friendly staff. 10/10.

I got acquainted with Nikolay's pies in 2011-2012 (different pies were ordered by my coleagues to different occasions) and for me they are one of the best as for quality today too. But their cafes' service is awful and nothing changed from the time of my last visit (at 2013). They have above-avarage prices in comparison with the same cafe but organized as a self-service cafe, they have no "bonus/discount sysytem" for their real followers. And even if you order big quantity of pies to your birthday - it is not an event for them. It's not obligatory for the restaurant to do such thing but in most restaurants where I was - there were something like a "small gift" for you and your choice them to celebrate your birthday. Such things create atmosphere of "customer care and implication". Last thing that "impressed me the most" - they haven't wardrobe or even place with clothes hangers (espessially necessary in autumn-winter time). And how graceless it looked when very glamour and representative woman for her question where she could hang her clothes (warm coat) received an answer: :Near you!" For me it was like line in the sand. It's a pity, because I want visit them and taste their marvelous pies but will think twice before doing that.
