We had walked past this cafe quite a few times, it had started to rain so made a quick dash and realized that there was a restaurant upstairs, it's a whole lot more! they have a dedicated children's play area and floral shop! the food was superb! After lunch we were tempted by desert downstairs, divine!

A nice place to eat and drink something. The design is really cool. A bit expensive for St. Petersburg but it worth it !

I lived in St. Pete for 6 months, and I loved everything from Biblioteka. The place has 3 floors, each floor serves different flood (though on the 3rd floor you can have also food from the restaurant underneath). The first floor is a quick restaurant, you can have even only a piece of cake or a tea (teas are stunning,... More

There are snow showers and I am tucking into a burger with blue cheese and fries. As the name suggests, the café has a funky bookshop feel. The staff all know English and are pleasant. If you are like me and always looking for a place for breakfast, lunch or dinner outside of a hotel that is good value and... More

I went with 5 friends. Pretty busy place but we where lucky. I had a soup, main course and desert. Portion are good but you need three courses. Food was very easy. Friendly stuff and although it's very busy there serve fast. totally recommendable.

Not sure what all the fuss is about. The location is perfect and I stopped in for lunch based on the reviews. I ate in the restaurant, not the cafe. Overall, the food was just OK - nothing special. My beef was a bit dry and the potatoes cool, definitely not hot. No one ever came by to ask if... More

Food was really good, friendly staff and the ambiance was amazing. We had the set menu which was conveniently easy. And the restaurant is well located. The only down side were 2 people who were trying to sell e-cigarettes to the customers which I thought it was strange - but not sure if this is common in Russia.

We had the set lunch menu which was very tasty and the price was reasonable. The staff were friendly and helpful. Only problem was it was very cold seated as we were by the window on a very cold and snowy day in February. Would definitely return but probably on a warmer day or I would choose my seat more...

We came in for a warming cup of coffee during a bitterly cold day in St Petersburg and ended up coming back for dinner. The food in the downstairs cafe is fantastic, good pasta and noodles, I recommend the warm chocolate and ginger cookies. The 3rd floor restaurant later that night had an interesting Russian, Asian, Italian selection. Boringly, we... More
