A simple establishment that is in great demand among the locals thanks to low prices and decent food. Povareshka is a classic dining room with trays, a dispenser and cheerful interior: red tile, shiny spoons hanging from the ceiling, and a live singing canary in the corner. There’s Wi-Fi here, a definite plus for tourists and students. The menu is mainly home-made food, recognizable to Russians from childhood, and in large volumes - borscht, pies, cutlets, mashed potatoes, buns with poppy seeds and compote.
