Burgers & Bakery

Savory, sweet and everything in between

Having split from BB Burgers, Burgers and Bakery offers ready-made baked goods and a great selection of sandwiches. Order any of their burgers, from the well-priced classic cheeseburger (350 rubles) to a more Russian eggplant burger (370 rubles), and enjoy your wait with a draft beer and warm slice of apple pie (250 rubles). The food, decor and rap and country music will surely awaken your inner American spirit.

Russian-style tapas

Open Wine and Table serves Russian-style tapas and wine in a friendly atmosphere.
