Singer Cafe


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

In the heart of St. Petersburg, in the house of the company Zinger, who is known to many as the "House of Books", on the second floor is located the cafe Singer. Huge panoramic Windows overlooking the Kazan Cathedral and the Nevsky Prospekt, spacious rooms with classic interior design and soft light will make you plunge into the atmosphere of the early twentieth century. What could be better than to start your day with a delicious Cup of coffee and freshly baked cakes, watching through the haze of the morning mist on awaking city? In the menu of cafe Singer You will find a large selection of delicious German desserts, omelets and snacks to start the day. After a light or hearty Breakfast, you

Brunch here can be traditional or it can be bacon, eggs beans and chips. At best average. We had lukewarm coffee. We should have skipped it and gone for a proper lunch.

Good cup of tea, great views and nice cake. Faded decor and very basic service means there are better and probably cheaper places to go. Too many people resulting in a lower standard. Average.

We had lunch there. The liver pate was tasteless. The dumplings were not that great....The honey cake was dry. The still water was sparkling and breathtakingly expensive. The service was slow and uninspired.

At the first floor of the historical building 'Singer', this cafe restaurant is a jewel since the interiors are Art Nouveau and Liberty and dates back to 1902. There is a wonderful view overlooking the Kazan Cathedral and Nevskii Prospekt. You can have a good...More
