brighton beach russian food markets

just experienced the little odessa scene down in brighton beach, brooklyn ny.... one of my old haunts in the 60's..... wow. love those russian markets. pickled everything, watermelon, tomatoes, mushrooms as well as cabbage, beets.... meats, cheeses, prepared foods. so interesting. great shopping. had a nice lunch in the cafe -- vareneky & pelmeni.... (russian pierogi and little meat dumplings)...

what fun.... anyone been there? can you recommend a nice place for lunch????? what did you order?
