Very friendly and welcoming cafe with the most wonderful views of Kazan Cathedral from the huge picture windows. They serve fantastic hot chocolate and quality coffee; their cakes and pastries are excellent.

Lovely cafe --windows all around- friendly young ladies ---tasty food. We had a great table that faced the Kazan Cathedral. I believe you have to go upstairs to get to the cafe --you'll love the views. Easy to visit the free cathedral after --safe crosswalk to get across the street too!

Don't miss the chance to visit this quality old fashioned cafe right in the middle of Nevski prospekt! I've visited it so many times and it's something I must experience every time I'm in St Petersburg. Get a table by a window, relax with a cup of excellent coffee, refreshments, blinis etc, and enjoy the beutiful view of the Kazan... More

Get there before 11:00AM because it will get crowded. Wait for a table with a view of Kazan and Nevsky Prospect. Anything you order wkill be good. And don't forget to book shopping

The bookstore looks great, more like a state library... enormous selection of books if you read russian. The café actually doesn't look that great, of course it has a nice view if.... you've managed to get near a window, the rest of the restaurant is quite gloomy. Furniture unimpressive. And what's worse, you can't look away from the large TV... More

Nice enough but still just a cafe. The view of the Cathedral is great but not worth paying double the price of every other cafe across the street.

Nice view on Kazan Cathedral, spoiled by terribly long queues and average coffee. Best in the evening

On a cold, December afternoon everyone wants cake so you may have to queue. Good selection of cakes and drinks.

Based upstairs in an arts and crafts building with fabulous window views to Kazan cathedral and all of life below on the road below. Service slow, but did not bother as we had a great view and we were thankful of the sit down! Great cakes and lovely coffee served by lovely staff. Great bookstore at ground level.
