Cream Cheese Vatrushka ($4.50)
Blueberries (or marionberries) rest on a bed of sweetened cream cheese on top of a danish-like pastry.
Apple Cinnamon Roll ($3.95)
The Apple Cinnamon Roll is exactly what you’d expect, and it’s really good. Slices of Granny Smith add crunch and a touch of tart flavor to a yeasty, tasty cinnamon roll. The center is soft and sweet, as it should be.
Cherry White Chocolate ($4.25)
White chocolate seems beside the point in this piroshki, which is all about tart cherries packed into a lightly sweetened dough with a touch of crunch.
Oscar's Star ($4.75)
I don’t know who Oscar is, but his namesake pastry is straight out of Russia’s Winter Palace. Gaudy and over-the-top, a star of pastry is drizzled with chocolate, decked with sweet cream cheese, and sprinkled with hazelnuts. Sure, I’ll eat that.
Cranberry Apple Roll ($3.60)
You’ll get your daily fruit serving from this piroshki. A pinch of cranberry brightens up a bushel of apples in a soft pastry wrapper.
Poppy Seed Cinnamon Roll ($3.85)
Start with a solid cinnamon roll then add a field’s worth of poppy seeds and a snack-pack of raisins. If that sounds good to you, this poppy seed cinnamon roll is for you.
Moscow Roll ($3.50)
The Moscow Roll is the oddest item on the menu: a light pastry wrapped around a filling of—wait for it—Cream of Wheat and Bavarian cream. It’s weirdly granular, strangely smooth, and pretty darn good.
Cinnamon Cardamon Braid ($3.80)
This braided bun is nutty, sticky and raisiny. I vote for more cardamom.
Coffee Cinnamon Roll ($3.55)
This spiral of dough is your breakfast and morning coffee rolled into one. The kick of real coffee grounds overpower the subtler flavors of cinnamon and cocoa, but at least it won’t spill in your lap.
Chocolate Cream Hazelnut Roll ($3.65)
If you’re a Nutella nut, you’re in luck. Packed with house-made hazelnut chocolate cream, this flaky pastry will definitely satisfy.
Rhubarb Roll ($3.75)
I like my rhubarb with a hint of pucker, so I found this to be a little sweet. Still, the combination of rhubarb and bavarian cream has a lot to recommend it.
Marzipan Roll ($3.95)
If you like almond paste, Piroshky Piroshky’s house-made marzipan is a treat. This pastry has just one flavor, but sometimes that’s all you need.
