The cafe is on the second floor of the boutiqe. Very nice athmosphere for romantic cup of tea/coffee.I didn't like that japanese food they served. Service is unobtrusive. Prices are high.

I found this cafe to be inviting, quirky and with wonderful food and drinks. The gazpacho was heavenly with stunning presentation. Staff have a better grasp of English than most. Not typical Russian menu but a funky global feel to the menu.

A very Art-Deco cafe we found by accident off Red-Square. Immaculate interior and though the staff had limited english when we were there, we were presented with iPad's that had a full English menu and easy to navigate and order with. The food was delicious and for Red Square surprisingly cheap. My colleague had the Roast Beef Sandwich which looking... More

We arrived there an hour before closing time and we were welcomed so well, it was a pleasure. One member of staff could speak fluent English which was great. We had a really good time, enjoying their cake and especially delicious cupcakes! The pistaccio and the blueberry ones were amazing!

Just happened to see this en route to the KGB building, and it was just a wonderful surprise. Loads of choice, gentle setting with bustling atmosphere, then went to the toilets, and had another surprise. - Check it out for yourselves. It wont dissappoint

Really liked this place, only had 4 days in Moscow, came here twice. The flavored tea is well worth a try, the cake is also very good, Its a chilled out place, i didn't find the prices too bad for food and tea that is served, if traveling to Moscow again i would defiantly return!

the place looks nice and the waiters are friendly, but we had to wait too long for two lattes, cheesecake and a croissant. taking into consideration that the place was half-empty, there was a lot of staff (some of them more interested in their mobile phones than the clients) i find it unacceptable that the coffees arrived not even remotely...

I learned to stick to known dishes that are difficult to "interpret" by the Russian chefs. If it's a Western/Eastern dish one must inquire about its preparation and ingredients. Assuming something is prepared the way you imagine is a categorical error. So when I ordered a burger (how can you mess that up??) and requested it be cooked medium well,... More
