About Us

Lacomka Bakery and Russian Store is now owned and operated by David Natlia and Lena Blagodar. David was born in Tbilisi, Georgia and emigrated to the United States in 1991. After working in New York for nearly 3 decades, he decided to chase his dreams and call Florida his new home. Lena was born in Odessa, Ukraine and moved to the United States in 2010. She also worked in New York for 10 years as a grocery manager. They share a love of Eastern European food, and a passion for an authentic home style dining experience that didn’t exist in Orlando. When the opportunity to purchase Lacomka came about, they leapt at their chance to bring their vision for a truly unique dining experience to the central Florida market. They invite you to come and visit the Lacomka Bakery and Russian Store, and experience first hand their passion for excellence.
