Great place in Astana. It is a must stop if you need a break from touring all the sites in Astana. Refreshing drinks, cakes, English books and Local crafts. If you can spare the weight in your suitcase being a few books to drop off.

Really nice place to drink coffee, tea, seat down and find great people. Besides coffee there is also library so you can take a book while resting. Stuff is extremely friendly and they can generally speak English as well.

Like most of you, I love to indulge in coffee crawls of various foreign cities, looking for that place to make base for a good read and a slice of work. I researched before arriving in Astana the options that were available to me. This...More
