Warm & friendly bakery / cafe, great place to pick up cakes to take away. Handily placed just off Nevskiy Prospekt, and around the corner from Admiralteyskaya Metro.

Stock up here before you go spend the day in the Hermitage, because the cafe inside there hasn't a great deal to offer.

In old days its offer was ok, but today is clearly overpriced. Pricing is based on business model when it is better to sell little but very expensive. The competition is too strong now to use the model further.

We discovered this place after leaving our hotel nearby in desperate need for a good espresso. We had delicious pastries and americanos. Highly recommend this place for its kind staff( who despite our lack of Russian were helpful and friendly). We ended up going there three mornings in a row. If you are looking for quality products and a comfortable setting for hanging out or just a morning espresso, this is the place. Wish I had one in Brooklyn!

We buy bread there sort of every day. It is a combination of a private bakery and a coffeehouse (or rather what would be called Konditorei or patisserie in the continental Europe).
It offers a large variety of bread, of Russian, Scandinavian, German, French and Italian types, with special emphasis on rye, wholegrain and mixed kinds, and extra ingredients (seeds, raisins, fruits, nuts, etc.). After you get used to that, you simply cannot downgrade to the plain industrial bread. It is 50% more expensive than the factory-made bread, or even the bread baked at the supermarkets, but it is terribly much better. On the other hand, it is cheaper (and still better!) than the bread produced by other private bakeries. Overall, it is clearly the best bakery in Saint Petersburg.
For the pastry, cakes, pies, etc. they are not as unique, since there are scores of other excellent places in Saint Petersburg. Still, some of their products (maretta, Dutch and Bavarian pastry, Quarktaschen, Schnecken, etc.) can be highly recommended.
Take away is cheaper than, and sometimes slightly different from what you get in the coffee room on the premises. It makes sense to get a loyal customer card for discounts.
