Regularly on lists of the best places to breakfast in St. Petersburg, gastronomic café Charlie by Chef Yuri Manchuk is a favorite for a cozy atmosphere and delectable dishes. With blue hues in tableware, crystal glasses, a nod to art deco design, a wall of flamingos and windowpanes with bananas, Charlie has long stood out on the St. Petersburg food scene. To start, try a variety of savory profiteroles or the spread of hummus and pate, cheeses, vegetables and breads for sharing. Next, try the chef recommended cauliflower cream soup with gorgonzola, smoked almonds, aloe honey and parmesan chips, or the duck breast fillet with buckwheat popcorn. Who could pass up ending with the chocolate ganache with sherry-soaked cherries?
