This was a nice, peaceful spot in a busy city centre, and we enjoyed the schnitzel dinner at a reasonable price. Staff speak great English, and menus are translated. Good range of items for cafe style food. Not a big range of mains, but good for smaller meals for lunch etc. nice coffee, and free WiFi. Stunning views over Kazan... More

The cafe is located in the bookstore just opposite the Kazan Cathedral, so you will get a great view outside window here. Lovely and cozy atmosphere, the service is average. Food is also average too, though the price is a bit overpriced compared to other places nearby.

Beautiful view, good lemonade ( nothing special though for 300 rubles ) but everything is overpriced and the waiters are rude. You can go and see the view but don't sit, it doesn't worth at all.

The remarkable about the cafe is the view, if you are lucky to find a front table. Otherwise it is a common one. We had only a look and leave, as we did find a front table. We have no idea about the prices or the service.
