Choosing to focus on one thing and do it right, the family-run, light and breezy Engels offers up crisp and crunchy waffles, loaded with toppings both savoury and sweet. Alongside the waffles, there is a late breakfast menu with eggs and porridge topped with flavour sensations such as peanut butter, dried cranberries and banana, or caramelised apples, poppy seeds and almonds, as well as an early menu, made up of coffee and food deals, if you’re an early riser.

Open 24 hours, Mamma’s Big House is a big cavernous café and has something for any time of day, or night. A retro decor and big comfy chairs makes this place ideal for a slow start to the day. A free cup of coffee or tea comes with breakfast, which is a pretty sweet start to proceedings – opt for building your own eggs, so you can get the sides you want, or try a savoury croissant, stuffed with chicken and tomato, or salted salmon.

Works Coffee is an independent coffee house that hipsters just love. They take their coffee seriously here, meaning you can try coffees brewed by different techniques – if you don’t fancy a latte, try a syphon coffee or a cold press. Breakfasts are cheap here, so fill up – warming porridge comes with a free coffee, and syrniki and bacon and eggs are a steal, so dig in!

Stolle prepares classic Ural dishes like pelmeni, meat stuffed dumplings, and vareniki, filled with sweet cheese and berries, in a cosy and homely environment. The café also whips up pirogies, Russian stuffed buns, of which there are plenty to choose from and ideal to soak up a hangover. For a real sensation, try out the both sweet and sour lemon pie, or the crusty mushroom kulebyaka, a pie made from a brioche pastry and stuffed with potato and cabbage, or salmon.
