I’m Thankful for Today

The tiny coffee house at the corner of Gorokhovaya Ulitsa and Griboedov Canal with floor-to-ceiling windows has only 30 chairs and a large bar counter. The owners decided to preserve the old ceramic tiles and stonework left over from the nineteenth century, when the building was erected. The menu has some pasta dishes, soups and sandwiches as well as cider, lemonades and lots of tea.
