“rarely I put excellent but what a service, decor and food combination”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

This review is for the coffeeshop on the ground floor as well as the restaurant on the lower level. First of all you arrive in a marvel of architecture and decor. No one touch of bad taste. For the coffee shop just walk around the boutique pick and choose and then seat down and order. The coffee, the fresh juices, the croissants are very good. A smiley person will come to pick your order. A very nice place where time is of essence, if you are in a rush do not seat. The next day we went again for lunch and when we ask for a soup they told us to go to the restaurant, which is located underground. Here again a deco of styple and with table in ceramic with themes, seating on armchairs and couches. In case you feel a little low, just put a couple of pillow to readjust your height. Menu very untypical, some traditional dishes and some not. Not the best cuisine but definitely whatever is prepared is done well. The borsh not so sweet more like in Ukraine, The blinis typical not crepes, really good food. the dessert are limited to mousses but also very good even thought I would have prefered to have access to the pastry sold in the ground floor. The waiter was extremely polite and with measure. A fantastic experience all combined. I would go back. remember it is not a cheap place.

“Great Cafe and Pastries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 19, 2013

Love this little run family business with authentic russian products. It has in the middle a small set of tables so you can enjoy a small cup of coffee with some pastries or cakes. The staff speaks fluent english and manage always to get what the customer wants from the different food outlets of the shop.

It has a great selection of cakes, pastries, caviar, cheese and hams. Everything fresh and with a decor from the Romanov era. The puppets and marionettes outside in the window of the shop is the presentation of this lovely coffee shop. The interior is even more beautiful.

Go, enjoy an eclair with a coffee and travel back 200 years.

“Wonderful cafe on the Nevsky Prospekt”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The Eliseyev is actually a tea room/restaurant/food hall on the Nevsky Prospekt. The tea room is part of the food hall; the restaurant is downstairs. I had tea and cake here on a very rainy afternoon in late September. The shop was bustling but the servers were very polite. Mine helped me to choose an exquisite dark and white chocolate mousse cake to accompany a pot of tea. Musicians played discreetly in a gallery upstairs. There were lots of Russians in the shop so it is not only for tourists. Quite frankly the visit was one of the highlights of my stay in St. Petersburg and I can't recommend it highly enough. They sell pastries, meats, breads, chocolate, tea, olive oil, etc. It's all very tempting and rather expensive but worth it. It's well worth a visit even if you don't want to shop or eat. I bought chocolates and tea to bring home to Canada - great gifts and everything was wonderful!
