The wait staff were incredibly lovely. They were warm, helpful, spoke excellent English and were happy to have a chat. The playful atmosphere of the decor was cosy and light-hearted. There was plenty of variety and an English menu. The food was scrumptious and cheap. We were lucky enough to get a table walking in off the street, but I... More

I really enjoyed my trip here the food was good (I don't eat meat) healthy and tasty and the atmosphere was very cosmopolitan and good. The staff were helpful and spoke really good English which meant that we had no trouble finding recommendations. My companions who are meat eaters ended up with frozen pork straws which were definitely interesting. I... More

Very tasty Hummus and potato fritters with salmon. This is actually one of the few places where you would get exactly what's described on a menu- no more no less) Appetizers and starters have nice portions and are always fresh and tasty, a nice variety of fresh juices and healthy food is offered. You might also get a nice breakfast... More

What a fantastic place. Such friendly staff and the food is delicious, the best humus I have ever eaten. A really warm and inviting place, you must pay them a visit if you're in SPB. Highly recommended.

Had a lovely dinner here. It is a little restaurant very cosy and busy and we were fortunate to get a table on a Friday night without a reservation. Service was very good and very accommodating - they offered to split the bowl of soup & drinks for the kids as they said they were large. Portion sizes very generous... More

Informal, good vibes kind of place. Can be kind of crowded, but this just seems to add to the overall comfort level. Excellent staff. One hour here can be more effective than a $300/hour shrink.

Food here is just great. They keep high quality with reasonable prices for years! Breakfast/lunch/dinner - any meal will suit well. They got a lot of Russian cuisine there. Service is 5* friendly and cute. Love zooom cafe big time!

Such a nice place with such nice people! The food is simple and comforting. The interior is friendly and quirky and cosy on a winter's day. Lots of good food and the prices were very reasonable.

First night in StP and really enjoyed coming here. It was full when we arrived but we soon got a table. Food is very tasty, simple but well-prepared and cooked. Service is delightfully friendly. Nice crowd in. You can draw on the tablecloths and play with the toys. Or read the books.

Thank John A
