“The owners/servers were extremely helpful and polite.  Offered us several “tastes” of things from the front delit counter and several “shots” of various Keifer type drinks. It was really an educational experience in culinary culture.” Mrs. R.

“One stop, peroski and borcht stop, here I come! I love this place. The staff is very friendly and they make me feel welcome every time I come in” Mel L.

“I like this store, and not only because it is the only Russian store in the area I know of. I like their borsch and soup, I was not impressed with their kvas, but their Napoleon (not the French military man, but Russian cake) made my day. I brought it to work, and people of different nationalities, cultures, and cuisines liked it. I stress this fact because sometimes people accustomed to different meals do not appreciate some native meals.”M. G.

“The only place locally I know of to get honest to goodness KinderEggs”. Nina T.


“Great selection of deli meats!  Love the quality products and the warm customer service. I will continue to support this mom and pop operation, as it is a true Castro Valley gem.” Matt C.
