Fanconi was established in 1872 making it Odesa’s oldest café. That said, there is very little linking this famed café to its noteworthy past: disappointing for those hoping to sneak a peak into Odesa’s history, exciting for locals craving only those things glitzy, fashionable and new. Perhaps the only features to have remained constant throughout its history are the scrumptious desserts. Sushi is the craze these days and Fanconi has not merely jumped onto the Japanese bandwagon, but is apparently steering it. They offer an ample selection of sushi and the karaoke lounge kicks off nightly at 20:00. Other mentionables include fantastic terrace seating on a more or less quiet intersection and a modish energetic crowd.
