This is a nice place in a bookshop. The place is crowdy and it's difficult to get a table. Nice windows to look at Nevsky Prospect

The only nice thing in this cafe is it's location and really beautiful view from the window. But menue is not interesting, while prices are much higher than in other cafes.

Had to go and find the waitress to take the order / food took almost 30 minutes to arrive. the "breakfast panini" turned out to be toasted white bread & the fried eggs had gone... More

I had a piece of apple pie, vanilla sauce and a double espresso. The apple pie was half frozen, dry and the apples were rather sour. The portion of vanilla sauce was too small. The espresso was too weak. The atmosphere was good and so was the service, but the prices were rather high.

It is centrally located, the menue is in English and the staff speaks and understands English. So far, so good. But the staff did not seem serviceminded. The portions were small (especially the pasta) and when we ordered desserts, we got something else than we had ordered without any explanation. The view if you are Lucky to get a window... More

Was really keen to visit the cafe after waking past the building a few times. I was disappointed by the cafe. The staff weren't very friendly and the food was overpriced for what we got. The views are great though.

Wonderful place to stop by for a coffee and great views of the cathedral. If you can, take a seat by the window to enjoy the cathedral and the busy life of Nevsky Prospect! Excellent coffee and superb cake - I think my friends made a particularly good choice with the cherry pie. Really good service and we just had... More

The lovely old Art Nouveau Singer Cafe is a great place for lunch. With bookshops on the first and second floors, there is a vast choice of reading material to dip into before you reach your table. We can recommend the traditional Russian borsch soup, which was served hot and was perfect on a chilly day. Full of flavour. The... More
