Had iced coffee with lychee flavour - yummy! With a good view of the Kazan Cathedral. Good choice to have a rest after a day of touring and sightseeing. Looked at what other people were having and they lòoked appetizing. We would have wanted to go back for a meal but we didn't have enough time.

Famous place located just opposite the Kazan Cathedral on Nevsky Prospekt. Prices are a little bit expensive. It would be better to have a kinder service in such a place.

This is one of this "must see" places in St. Petersburg. The atmosphere inside is like from old movies. Through giant windows you can observe people on Nevsky and Kazansky Square. The coffee is good. Choice of desserts is ok, but eclairs could be bigger and less dry. Really dissapointing thing - the aroma around Singer Cafe isn't natural. It... More

Cafe Singer is on the second floor of Dom Kinigi - so very accessible to Nevsky Prospekt. You may have to wait for a table, but it's well worth it. The tea/coffee service is good, and the meals are excellent. Hopefully, you can have a table that looks out over Nevsky and the Kazan Cathedral.

Nice of them. If... More

Wanted to try this Cafe based on reviews. Affirmed that not all reviews will be a kin to your liking. Cafe Singer is on the 2nd floor of a crowded bookstore. Not so easy to find as its tucked around a corner. Atmosphere was benign and food was a bit expensive for what you ordered. On top of that, it... More
