Wanted to try this Cafe based on reviews. Affirmed that not all reviews will be a kin to your liking. Cafe Singer is on the 2nd floor of a crowded bookstore. Not so easy to find as its tucked around a corner. Atmosphere was benign and food was a bit expensive for what you ordered. On top of that, it... More

It was tough to get a table here just because of the number of people parked with their laptops, but ultimately we did. The service and food are average for St. Petersburg. This is a perfectly serviceable place to stop for a quick bite or to take a break after sightseeing, but it's not a can't-miss.

I visited this cafe a few days back. The ambience was warm, the staff friendly and the view was beautiful. I found the prices reasonable and the food up to the mark. I would recommend this place to all to just chill and enjoy the view.

I love this building and visiting the 2nd floor cafe is a must. If you can get a table you will find that you are surrounded by St. Petersburgers who love this place too. If you are lucky enough to get a window table you will have an amazing view of the Kazan Cathedral. Be sure to look at the... More

great place to take a break and have a small bite or glass of wine. The bookstore is terrific too. Just very handy, and food is reasonably priced and tasty. Building is very interesting as well.
