Places to Eat in St. Petersburg on a budget
December 20, 2010 17:34

Eating out in St. Petersburg? There are very many possibilities, from cheap restaurants and eating-houses to the luxury restaurants. Usually, luxury hotels aren't a usual tourist's choice. At the same time, very few things are so important as eating out for a tourist in a foreign city. St. Petersburg, the northern capital of Russia, is rich in good budget restaurants and reasonably priced cafes. Prices for food in St. Petersburg distinguish in the whole from Moscow ones for the better.

Network cafes like Chainaya Lozhka (Teaspoon) (about 40 facilities), Idealnaya Chashka (Ideal Cup), McDonald's, Blin Donalds (Russian pancakes), Teremok are opened all over the city. A lunch in such facilities costs about the same. There are also medium-priced cafes in close vicinity from the main St. Petersburg sights. Moreover, student canteens in St. Petersburg are available for everybody.


1. Bistro
Fast dining restaurants Frikadelki and ProKofiy are situated next to such tourist strongholds as russia-ic.com/regions/5115/5117/museums/129/State Russian Museum and Savior-on-the-Blood cathedral. The address is Naberezhnaya Kanala Griboyedova (The Griboyedov Canal Quay), 8. It is in 150 metres from the Nevskiy Avenue and exit from the underground station "Kanala Griboyedova". These facilities are easy to detect because of bright signs over the entrance.
