This centrally located gastronomic space opened in 2013 and has already become one of St. Petersburg's favorite places—it's always lively. The three-floor complex features a casual café and bar on the first floor. The second floor hosts a classy, and pricey, restaurant as well as a flower shop and an exquisite china store. On the third floor are a bookstore, a bar, and a hall where film screenings and lectures are held. On offer is just about any food or drink you might want, including coffee and breakfast dishes, a huge array of pastries and cakes, salads, sandwiches, and dinner food, including grilled meat and fish, pastas, Asian noodles, soups, and hamburgers. The juicy, upscale cheeseburgers, their buns baked on the premises, are standouts. One downside is that service is not as efficient as one would might hope, but the cheap prices and the delicious food compensate.
