A GOOD BREAKFAST DEFINES THE DAY!
One of the favorite activities of the Muscovites on the weekend is to go to have breakfast.
Trendy Moscow now has a breakfast and brunch scene to rival its nightlife.
If you're up and out early enough on the weekend, some places will make your morning.
There's nothing better than sipping coffee, crunching fresh bread, reading a newspaper and talking to the favorite people.
That's why we picked out a great choice of restaurants and cafés where you can enjoy an excellent new breakfast menu.
(All restaurants offer vegetarian dishes)
From beautiful bowls of granola to hangover fry ups we've rounded up Moscow's best breakfasts, where the food is both delicious and highly Instagrammable.
Attention: If the visit is essential to you, you should always reserve a place beforehand.
Blanc is casual, very friendly, with delicious food.
It’s worthwhile going early during the week or even late on the weekend so that you can try its various breakfast menu.
In the heart of Moscow’s trendy Kitay-Gorod, Blanc’s edgy and vintage vibe fits right in. It is undoubtedly a very stylish, contemporary place – very Berlin/New York in a way – but it’s not pretentious.
We recommend trying the buckwheat pancakes (350 rubles), the croissant with salmon (490 rubles) or the omelet with cheese and edamame (490 rubles), just to name some of the tasty dishes.
