Cafe, European, $$$
Kharms is a cosy space in the centre of Kiev. Here you can buy not only books, but also vinyl records, not to mention taking a seat at a brew-bar to enjoy freshly roasted coffee, delicious desserts and mouthwatering sandwiches. There are also events held here, including lectures for creative types on photography, and talks about contemporary art. The cafe offers a thorough selection of literature on art, science and philosophy, as well as albums and gift editions that are hard to find in large bookstores.
