Saint Pete Coffee Break

Saint Petersburg is a city of culture, history, architecture with delicious food and drink. During a long day of exploring the city, or if you find yourself simply needing to escape from the cold, there is not much better than sitting down in an quaint café and enjoying good conversation with a great cup of coffee.

If you are traveling through Saint Petersburg delicious cafes are on just about every street corner. To be sure that you make the most out of your caffeine selection, here is a list of some of the best cafes for ambiance, comfort and of course, quality!

Their extensive menu consists of breakfast all day as well as a delicious selection of sweets and cakes to pair with a great cup of coffee or espresso. Tucked away, Coffee 22 is very cozy with cushions, chairs and hidden corners. The mood is set by old records and soft jazz often playing quietly in the background.

With an unlimited supply of coffee, espresso, tea and snacks, you only must pay for the time you spend there. Цифербург is located in a prime spot on Fontanka.

With a piano inside and chic decorations, there is always somebody playing the piano or taking photos.
