The cafe is across from the Kazan cathedral. We were five people and all ordered different blinis. All very good. The service was not the best. But other that that it was fine.

Not really that exciting messy untidy book store. Sold lots of mixed items from cans of drink to beautiful books however you need to hunt. I love books especially cook books but not any different than in Russian. It's worth popping in to see the store however for us we didn't stay long

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!

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
