As one would expect from a central avenue, Krasny Prospect is rich in terms of gastronomy, but do not rush through the very first door: there will be plenty of opportunities to try sushi and pizza. Instead, take a detour – turn to a narrow lane leading to Pervomayskiy Skver (May Day Park) and start your day at the lovely cafe with tall windows.
A lingering case of jetlag will not be a problem since Park Café serves breakfast from early morning to dinnertime. The menu is full of international favorites: here, you can get anything from an Italian frittata omelet and a French quiche to Belgian waffles and an Israeli shakshuka. Dinner offerings include Pad Thai and Tom Yum, a tribute to local residents' favorite vacation destination. The dining area resembles a spacious Scandinavian living room, with the interior decorated in natural colors and basking in the light from the panoramic windows. The opposite wall is lined with shelves holding books from every corner of the world. These international details and the snow-covered fir trees outside the windows combine to create ultimate confusion – as you are sitting inside Park Café, the idea that you are in the middle of a Siberian megalopolis might be the furthest thing from your mind.
