This comprehensive travel guide will lead you through Moscow far beyond its postcard attractions


Prices usually start from around RUR 120 for a single espresso at Moscow's cafes, the cheapest dessert costs about the same.

A coffee addict will easily find one of several hundred Chokoladnitsa (Шоколадница) or Coffee House (Кофе Хауз) cafes scattered all over the city. At these cafes, baristas will treat you as a luxury restaurant’s guest. Their food is mostly pre-cooked, but still not bad.

Cofemania (Кофемания) is a less extensive but more expensive local chain.

Beers, wines and spirits are available at some of these cafes, but the choice is rather limited. On the bright side, they offer good loose-leaf teas.

Cofix chain offers good coffee, sandwiches, salads, soups, pizzas and desserts, all at the fixed price of RUR 60 only.

The same old Starbucks also has dozens of cafes in Moscow, or you may call at an outlet of a smaller chain, or at an independent coffee shop.

Some cafes have open terraces (from early May to late September) where smoking is allowed.

Numerous vending machines sell coffee to non-discriminating customers at materially lower prices.
