Since our hotel was on Vasilyevsky Island, this location was a short walk for us (please note that the street is 6-ya Liniya, not B-ya). It's located on a very nice pedestrian street with lots of shopping and cafes. The restaurant itself is down an alleyway, so look for their sign at the entrance. We walked by it the first time not even seeing it. Their space is nice and open with plenty of seating. The young lady behind the counter spoke wonderful English, so we were in luck with finding vegan stuff on the menu. Since it was dinner time, some items were already sold out, but she had one more of the eggplant dish and some lentil soup. We also got an apple celery salad from their deli case. All of it was tasty, so we can see why it was selling out. For dessert, we got two strudels, an apple and a poppyseed. Yum! We also got a takeaway box of other desserts, including one stuffed with marzipan (our favorite!). Overall, we were very pleased with our meal and the service. Check it out!
vegan options, friendly staff, nice location
a little hard to find
