Dobraya Stolovaya (Friendly Cafeteria)

Ilnar Tukhbatov/TASS
This chain cafeteria, due to its great food and super low prices, tends to be packed at all times. The prices of the same dishes will change slightly in the course of the day. There is an online calculator on the cafeteria's website, which you can use to tally up your lunch. The DS at Kazan's central Ulitsa Baumana (Baumana Street) is the most popular cafeteria of the whole chain. On holidays DS will sometimes treat its patrons to free borscht or stuffed pies. Vegetarian specialties are shown separately on the menu – a touch of thoughtfulness rare among cafeterias. DS bakes pies to order.
