An old Russian proverb states that ‘you should have your breakfast yourself, share your lunch with a friend and give your dinner to your enemy.’ Whether you agree with that or not, the fact remains that breakfast is a very important meal of the day. If you’re headed to the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and happen to find yourself in Nizhny Novgorod one morning, here are your best breakfast and brunch spots.

If you’re craving something familiar, Angliiskoe Posolstvo (English Embassy) is the place to go. Dark furniture and wooden panels on the walls make this spot look like a real English pub. They also serve authentic English breakfast every day starting at 8 am, and the breakfast menu is available until 4 pm on the weekends.

Coffee Cake

Cafe, Coffee Shop, Contemporary, European, Coffee, $$$

Coffee Cake specialises, quite obviously, in coffee and cakes. Their breakfast and lunch menu, however, is quite impressive. It is a cosy, casual café, excellent for a good start to a busy day.


Brasserie, French, Seafood, European, $$$

If you’re looking for French chic in Nizhny Novgorod, or a good croque madam, croque monsieur or a croissant, look no further. Gavrosh opens early on the weekends, making it a great place for breakfast (or a late dinner if you’re still up from the night before).
