VKofeine (In Coffeehouse)

This quiet café with a rural theme is an embodiment of the Russian dream of Provence. The flowerpots, straw furniture and shelves with books definitely belong. So does the pink bicycle out front, where patrons like to take their selfies. The menu is rather heavy on baked products and pastries. For "proper" food, they have several pasta entries, dorado and salmon steak with grilled vegetables and a few other options. Business lunch is served on weekdays, and its menu is updated daily. Breakfast starts at 9 in the morning: porridge, syrniki (cottage cheese pancakes), sunny side up eggs… everything is nicely laid out and inexpensive. Your cappuccino will invariably come with a little drawing in its froth: a bear, a cat, or something else. They have mime entertainers on weekends.
