i noticed many sausages with expired dates, but ignored and purchased 6 inch Hungarian Salami and Georgian style sausage, total $26. Normally i would have them sliced, but this time i was not even offered slicing.

I ate here yesterday for the first time and loved it. It was a rainy afternoon and I was craving borscht. the place is small and quaint and the food was excellent. I had the Borscht and my date had stuffed dumplings. the dumbling were great but the borscht was really outstanding (always a good sign in a russian place), fairly priced and good service. I will return and bring friends.

Pros: Quite, Quaint, romantic, really good food

Cons: almost too quite

We had dinner at Babushka Russian Deli & Cafe and it was great - the interior of the restaurant looked amazing. The Service was good and the food was exquisite.

One entree is more than enough to fill you up - I had the Chicken Kiev and ate every bit of it.

Price was a little expensive going around $25 per person

PROS: Great food at in a great atmosphere
CONS: The prices are a little high

In the best traditions of a Soviet sales-people, the owner, who is also the salesperson, tries to cheat the customer the best he can, forgetting that the customers will not come back. The prices are not written anywhere, and he charges any price he can get away with. I discovered that he charged me $16 for a small bag of cherry vareniki. If you absolutely have to buy something at Babushka deli, ask for the price ahead of time and watch up that the salesperson types them up correctly into the cash register. The selection is poor, and the restaurant quality is way below average. So I would recommend staying away.

We'd recommend Babushka highly. When you walk in and are seated at the beautifully-set tables, it's easy to imagine that you're in Russia, not California. The owners are among the most hospitable restaurateurs that you'll ever meet, and the food is great and served in generous portions. And the borscht? Well, it's heavenly. You won't be disappointed.

Pros: The food is great and the hospitality is even better!

Cons: Parking is limited (it's in a strip mall), but there is some street parking, as well.

I dropped by this deli/restaurant only to pick up some frozen Pelmeni & honey cookies. I did a comparison & found that my friend & I enjoyed the frozen packaged Pelmeni from European Food Market in Concord, CA better than the regular beef Pelmeni from Babushka. The filling was kind of sweet in this one, which was weird because it's not supposed to be. I'm a little disappointed with this. Haven't tried the restaurant here because based on the food I picked up at the deli, the restaurant must use the same stuff which I don't really like.

Babushka which means grandmother in Russian is a very good deli in Walnut Creek . Only there you can buy unique russian, ukranian, jewesh food. Some food is home made right there by the owner and his family. Cakes, russian-style dumplings, delikatessen are excellent. The staff is always friendly and helpful. The store is open on weekends and holidays.

We had vegetarian Borscht and their soup made with 25 different sausages. Flavor of the soups was fabulous, and the portion size was hearty. The piroshki I would recommend avoiding. The purchased puff pastry and unidentifiable meat paste it was stuffed with were just edible. We had the pelmeni and the cheese vareniki for the main course. They both ranked among the best I have ever tasted. We finished with a piece of cranberry cake, that we probably would have been better off without... it tasted like the inside of the refrigerator.

We stopped by the deli on the way out, where they sell their pelmeni and vereniki frozen, as well as many other difficult to find Russian foods... including chocolate cheese (which I've never seen in the U.S. before).

Ambience was a strange melding of elegance and greasy spoon... with what is obviously a weekend discothec in one corner.
