The Moskovsky district has had a complete makeover in recent years. It has been steadily transforming from a residential area to a fashionable neighbourhood full of businesses that have set up shop. A strategic location on the way to the airport, as well as towards the former Imperial residences, the Moskovsky district is a good place to stay while touring St Petersburg. Here are some places to start the day, be it a quick breakfast or a lazy brunch.

Bona Capona

Restaurant, Italian

Bona Capona specialises in Italian food, but in the mornings, it makes an exception and provides breakfast for all tastes. There is the option to start the day healthy with a smoothie, or to have a filling breakfast that will last you a while. Pastries and sweets are also available to satisfy any morning sugar cravings.

A 24-hour restaurant is bound to have breakfast covered and Pryanosti & Radosti is no exception. It serves traditional breakfast dishes with an exciting twist. Choose from an assortment of eggs or porridge with nuts and fruits. If you are looking for something a little more sugar-loaded, there are breakfast puddings and pies available to satisfy that craving.


Restaurant, Italian

With a wide selection of breakfast choices, Italy is a great place to have breakfast with friends or family. A kid’s room will keep the young ones busy, while parents enjoy a cup of freshly brewed coffee on comfortable sofas. Don’t expect a quiet romantic spot, this is an opportunity to embrace the hustle and bustle of a big Italian home.


Bar, Cafe, Pastries

There are 11 types of coffees to choose from, all hailing from leading coffee-producing countries. Just like any respectable bakery, GURmE has a wide selection of pastries and desserts for a sugary boost in the morning.

Chaykhana is a name given to traditional teahouses found in Central Asia. Despite the name, tea and sweets are not the only items on the menu in this modern interpretation of a chaykhana. The menu is made up of Uzbek dishes, with some Georgian and European favourites mixed in. The breakfast is fairly simple; there are few surprises and all the staples are listed. But meals at Chaykhana are enjoyed within its creative interior, while relaxing on spacious sofas.


Restaurant, Spanish, Italian, Mexican, South American

A delicious blend of some of the world’s famous cuisines, including Spanish, Italian and South American come together at this fusion restaurant. Breakfasts here are not as exotic, but promise to be of high quality. For a hearty meal, there are complete English and Continental breakfasts available alongside some lighter choices.


Restaurant, Italian

A pleasant and comfortable place to enjoy breakfast, Marcellis has opened restaurants all over the city for many years, which is proof of its popularity. It is an Italian family restaurant that provides fair-priced meals for every palate. Of course, breakfast here is best paired with a cup of authentic Italian coffee.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
