There are about 99,000 branches of кофе хауз in Saint Petersburg. This is a review of the one at dom 69 Nevsky Prospekt. This place was about a block down Nevsky from my hotel, and I went in the second morning in town and just kept going back. The double cappuccino is pretty good. I would also get the syrniki, which are these hockey-puck-shaped cottage cheese pancakes with syrup drizzled on them. They were wonderful -wonderful- and they came with "smyetana" on the side which was a thick cream halfway between sour cream and crème fraiche. It was good but it tended to drown the sweetness of the syrup so after a couple tries with the smyetana I just ate them without it. The service was very good. I seemed to get the same server every morning and I think it was because I tipped her. That is not common in Russian and I don't think they know what to make it. But they will take the money and I am sure it made them pleased to see me again. And as I said, the services was always very good, definitely of a quality you would tip for in the USA. I suppose the place is a little expensive for Piter but you know what you are getting when you go in there. Atmosphere was not bad. The décor could have been better but the music was very good. I guess it was Russian jazz. It was cool. Anyway, next time I am in Piter I will get my morning coffee here.
