Clean, quiet, nice cafe with friendly staff and excellent authentic meals. It stays the same for many years, keeping the atmosphere of the Soviet Union — but in a good sense. I really love it.

I'm not sure what you'd call that character...but I am forever grateful to the friend that introduced me to this blinnaya 15 years ago! It is now a "must go" (more than once) every time I am in St. Petersburg. The service is...silent, but that's part of the character. It's also very efficient. Last time I was there my friends...

I have been a regular cudtomer since 80es. On my last visit the bill for 2 huge portions if best blini ever with red caviar and herrings accompanied by tea was less than 5.50GBP and they tried to decline my 1 pond tip saying it was too much. It doesnt happen that often, does it?

It is one of those (very typical) basement-locations, with nothing much to catch your attention until you are right in front of it. No outdoor seating. The... More

We wanted to try out some blinis and blinchkis while in Saint Petersbourg and found this address in a travel guide and decided to try it out. You have to know the place to enter it and order as the place itself as nothing attracting to it; we'd have turned around if not recommended by our travel guide but fear... More
