This weekend we literally ran away to Vologda — a small city, that we wanted to visit in the beginning of the year but didn’t manage to do it. Vologda is known for its churches, nature and ice cream, but this is not the only thing that deserves attention in the city. Food, delicious and high quality cooked, as well as beautifully decorated food – that’s what you should pay attention to in any trip. Especially if you like to eat as much as I do.

Address: Victory prospect, 11 | Working hours: Mn-Fr 08:00-22:00, St-Sn 10:00-22:00
Menu: desserts, hot and cold drinks
Service: nice service, waiters know the menu well
Comment: For me, the ideal cake “Napoleon” (mille-feuille) was made by my grandmother; she cooked it in the village on the stove. So in this cafe it is as close as possible to my grandma’s cake. By the way, you need to try “Tropical” tea with a base on green tea.
Address: Mira street, 8 | Working hours: Sn-Th 08:00-23:00, Fr-St 08:00-02:00
Menu: European cuisine, breakfasts, coffee and desserts
Service: fast; waiters know the menu well
Comment: I ordered “Bumble” coffee and cake “Blue velvet” and got the perfect combination. The cake is subtle and melting in mouth. Coffee is something that blew my mind (in a good sense because usually I take cappuccino); I don’t know what’s more in this drink: coffee or fresh orange juice.
Address: Sovetskiy prospect | Working hours: Sn-Th 11:00-22:00, Fr-St 11:00-01:00
Menu: European cuisine, pizza, wine list
Service: open kitchen; fast cooking and nice waiters
Comment: You can get pizza only after 18:00. Generally, it’s a high-level canteen where you can eat quite cheaply but very delicious food. If you choose between another canteen in Vologda called “O’Gorod” and this one, there’s no need to think — just go to “Kitchen”, it’s best option ever.
Address: Victory prospect, 25 | Working hours: Sn-Th 12:00-23:00, Fr-St 12:00-02:00
Menu: European cuisine, pizza, business lunch
Service: Slow cooking but nice waiters
Comment: Business lunch is tasty here. By the way, on the photo you can see the exact lunch that we ate. The only disadvantage of this place is the tables for clients — they are not enough because this place is quite popular. But if you take pizza away you’ll get 20% discount.
