Dreamers, Fontanka embankment, 11

This is a beautiful cafe with large windows overlooking the Fontanka River and the Sheremetev Palace. The cafe boasts an amazing location, creative menu and great wine list.

The honey beer is amazing too.

Pyshechnaya on Bolshaya Konyushennaya - Bolshaya Konyushennaya street, 25
