Brighton Beach seeps into Bushwick with this Russian tearoom, from Soviet-born, Brooklyn-raised duo Ksenya Roz and Mary Kaushansky. Decor nods to the motherland—with porcelain teapots and Ukrainian children’s books on display—as does the menu of homestyle Eastern European fare. Alongside café staples like croissants, there are potato-and-mushroom pelmeni dumplings, blini with three sauces (condensed milk, Nutella and seaberry jam), and buckwheat porridge topped with roasted mushrooms and a poached egg. An outdoor patio features a custom grill for shish kebabs and a large mural of a three-eyed red bear.

Dillinger's is a very cute little Russian tea café on the corner of Evergreen and Jefferson in Bushwick. My favorite thing about the place is its design. There is geometric shelving when you first walk through the door, and behind the counter in back, there's all these beautiful tea pots and coffee ware displayed on shelves. This is good place to come for a simple breakfast or if you need to do some laptop work. The food is very vegetarian and vegan friendly, like the quinoa bowl with veggies and spices and an optional fried egg, and prices usually range in the $9 to $11 range.
