Eating and Drinking

Sergiev Posad is most popular with religious pilgrims and in and around the monastery are numerous trapeznaya (canteens or refectories) catering to Orthodox tastes. This is very good for vegetarians as many strict Orthodox believers don't often eat meat. Generally you can get a simple meal in these places for less than 300Rbl.

Elsewhere there are restaurants catering for the tourist trade, almost all of which serve Russian cuisine and one or two slightly trendier restaurants and cafes aimed at the town's younger less pious generation.
