  • Coffeemania

    Popular café chain
    Everything began in 2001 with a stylish Italian café next to the Moscow Conservatory. The place was a huge hit and was always packed so people had to wait for a seat.

This place is great for starting the day with a fine breakfast or resting up from a long day of sightseeing with a tart, salad or small but hearty meal.
