I happened on this restaurant, and chose it for its charming atmosphere. The food was excellent. The prices might seem a bit high, but the food is high quality, and there were lots of little extras. For example, I had the fish pot au feu...More

We often visit this small cafe, their espresso, cappuccino, and latte very delicious, the dessert also very delicious. Atmosphere and decoration look like the same as very very old Italian cafe. Highly recommended

Cafe Michel is in a nice Moscow city center area close to the Pond. It's a good place for breakfast and to meet with friends.

Really nice place to visit in Moscow center. Try great pastries, macaroons, coffee or hot chocolate. Prices are really high but it's not a place for dinner just for coffee.)

The neighborhood is divided into two major halves by
Krasnaya Presnya street: the southern part highlights
Moscow city – businesses contained in skyscrapers
along with the White House - where the Russian
government works. The north is a bit more relaxed and
casual, visitors here will find the Moscow zoo,
National Centre for Contemporary Arts and a number of
fine restaurants. The beautiful neo-gothic Cathedral
