Cafe Singer has a long history, occupying the second floor of the famous bookstore called Dom Knigi, which means house of books. The cafe has wraparound windows that face the famous Nevsky Prospekt. It is a place to have a light lunch and/or dessert while browsing the bookstore. Their sandwiches have a western European flavor, but they also offer borsch,... More

There is a spectacular view at Kazan Cathedral! And, of course there is a charming bookstore where is a good cafe with a reasonable prices, but you'll forget about it in a week or so -- you'll remember THE VIEW.

The Singer café provides a welcome break while strolling on the Nevsky Prospect. Menu is available in english and they serve both food and pastries. We had blinis, Cesar salad and pastries which were all very tasty. Service was quite helpful and friendly. The café has an old world charm and a beautiful view of the Kazan cathedral.

The menu was in English and you can select a sweet or savory pastry from the display cases as well as ordering from the menu. The food and service were very good and our very... More

If you need a break during sightseeing, cafe singer is a nice spot with a perfect view looking kazan cathedral. Not much choice on hot dishes. Russian blinis are tasty. Choice on desserts is good. A little on the pricey side- for the location of course.

Was advised to try this little gem. I ordered a Blini. Menu was in English and easy to understand. One note if you are allergic to, or don't like onion it is on most things but not listed on menu. Food tasted good, service was friendly and the view wasn't bad either! Most staff understood English and were easy to... More

This cafe is located on the second floor of a bookstore. The location is great, View of the cathedral and canal and road is amazing. And coffee and light snacks are very well prepared. I loved it so much my first time that I changed my schedule next day just to go their again once more.
