The view is nice. People were waiting for an empty table by the window even if others were empty. The food is not so great. I went for lunch and dinner, and the only thing I kind of liked was the ginger lemonade.

We came here for lunch. Although it was crowded, the waiter still guided us to our seats and provided good service. Food is good and I recommend their sweets! Very delicious with decent price.

The second floor of a legendary building and a massive bookshop. A must try for even a cup of coffee. Some small sweet bites with your order are a compliment from the cafe.

Beautiful view, good lemonade ( nothing special though for 300 rubles ) but everything is overpriced. Waiters are good. Try and grab a place at the large windows. Would like to return for dinner.

The exterior of the cafe in an art nouveau style promises more than it delivers, once inside it is very average, average service, average food, average cleanliness. A good view from the window, but not more than what you can see from the street.

This is a nice place in a bookshop. The place is crowdy and it's difficult to get a table. Nice windows to look at Nevsky Prospect
