Its great choice to have your breakfast, brunch etc. Its on the second floor of a shop with souvenirs, books etc. Its on the nevsky, the main street of St. Petersburg. The cafe its a little bit small and sometimes its hard to find a table!

Very busy at times so don't expect a quick in and out, but very traditional. Great selection of cakes and treats - recommend the macaroons and the blinis with caviar!

As a reward for all the walking I’d done along Nevsky Prospekt, I popped up to the Singer Café, where I enjoyed a delectable pistachio cake with white chocolate crème. Initially, the slim slice struck me as skimpy; but when I took my first bit of the rich confection, I recognized that I would have been hard-pressed to finish more.... More

Our food was really, really good. Not just "I'm in Russia and this is what I'm stuck eating" but really good. Our waiter was nice, the menu was in English and Russian. Great view of Kazan cathedral across the street.

Singer Cafe is situated on Nevsky Prospekt opposite the Kazan Cathedral. It is a huge book store with cafe upstairs and serves good food including scrumptious desserts. The huge windows give a magnificent view of the cathedral opposite but even if you can't get a window seat it's still a place well worth visiting. In fact we did, twice in... More

The restaurant is tucked away on the first floor of the old Singer building. There are spectacular views of Nevsky Prospekt through the huge windows. The customers are almost exclusively tourists with deep pockets and the prices reflect this fact. The quality of the food is adequate ... it is the ambience that is the draw.

Nothing special about the food. Expected at least the pastries to be great but they were average and a limited selection in early afternoon. During this lunch period, there was not enough staff to go around. Maybe slightly high priced but fair enough considering the location. Especially good if you can sit near the windows--great views. The cafe is upstairs... More
