Baltiysky Khleb - British Bakery

Pop in for a cup of tea (served a la Russe, in a glass) and to admire the success of this café chain that passes itself off as British. Paintings of British landmarks adorn the walls while dull clippings from British newspapers are pressed under the glass of the tables. The food is a Russian interpretation of standard British/French café fare but pastries are often stale. Don’t bother asking the staff if you can take pictures (they’ll say no) – just wait till they’re busy with other customers and do it on the sly. Good for curiosity, but nothing special.

Opposite M Vladimirskaya.
