A calm afternoon with a cup of tea or coffee in one hand and a pastry or dessert in the other – there is almost no better way to relax in the beautiful New Holland area of St Petersburg. Here we run down the best cafés and coffeehouses in the neighbourhood.
With bright colours and a Californian aesthetic, the design of Surf Coffee will make you want to buy a ticket to Hawaii or Los Angeles immediately. This is the perfect, chilled out spot to meet friends and laze around with a cup of coffee in hand: try the Hawaiian cappuccino, mint mocha, or even a spicy blend with tabasco and chilli.
This Vietnamese café is the area’s top choice for Asian cuisine. Uniquely, it also offers numerous Asian twists on café fare, such as Vietnamese coffee or cold drinks made with fresh coconut, mango, or green pumpkin – a great combination for a hot day.
A great place for brunch or breakfast, Wolkonsky Deli also has its own bakery, which produces dozens of different baked treats a day. It is a great place for either a quick 0r lazy coffee, served with one of their yummy cakes or pastries. Their range of beverages is also quite impressive: don’t miss their signature Wolkonsky special coffee or their delicious Thai coffee.
A great place for sitting and taking in the neighbourhood vibe, Kuznya House is probably the only venue in New Holland which works all around the clock, and is a go-to choice for almost any occasion. They offer a classic selection of coffees and teas, along with pastries and desserts.
Good at any time of day, Bekitzer has something to offer for all of St Petersburg’s coffee addicts. Once you’re there, make sure to try their delicious oriental coffee, uniquely prepared on hot sand, or their layered and intricately prepared knafeh pastry.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
