After so many posts about St. Petersburg here on the site, you should already know that we are going there soon, right? I’ve already told you about some of the best restaurants in the city and now it’s time to share with you the best confectioneries and bakeries in the area.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love trying sweets, so I researched a lot to find out which are the best places there. Each of them has some different characteristic, meaning you can choose the one that has more to do with your style 🙂
Du Nord 1834
The decor of Du Nord is very classic and with a style that reminds a lot of French confectioneries. The chef of the place, Leonid Zatulivetrov, sought to bring various elements of France to the cafe and, for this reason, you will find several typical French sweets such as the delicious macarons.
The cakes are also amazing and they sell a lot of traditional flavors. The red fruit cake and the apple cake are wonderful options for those who love fruit, for example. They work like a bakery, so they take orders and even make wedding cakes – it’s a super complete place!
Buseh is that very traditional and pleasant type of coffee to spend the afternoon, you know? They offer several options of croissants, muffins, cakes and puddings, all super tasty. As they are specialized in bakery products, you will also find an incredible selection of breads, from the most traditional to other wholegrain whole grains and seeds.
Luckily for us, there are several Bushe units around the city, so it is easier to get to know some units and taste what you like best on the menu. All the ingredients used are of high quality and the products are made with great care. If you want to see all the addresses of the cafe around St. Petersburg, just click here.
Korzhov is the kind of place that already conquers you by the smell, you know? Fresh breads and sweets leave the room with an incredible aroma. It makes you want to try a little of everything! Despite having French influences, they sell many Russian desserts, such as the napoleon cake.
If you enjoy a hearty afternoon coffee, or even brunch, this place is perfect. In addition to sweets, they sell many savory breads and pies with different types of filling. Ah, the drinks there are super tasty and they use coffee beans from Brazil!
F. Volcheka Bakery
With several traditional desserts from the country and the famous Russian pies, Volcheka is one of the most traditional places in the city. They sell a huge variety of products and it is almost impossible for you not to find anything that you like there.
Both sweet and savory are delicious and win the heart of everyone who decides to stop by the place. Be sure to try kartoshka, a super common dessert in Russia, which is basically made with cookies, chocolate powder and condensed milk.
Eliseevs Food Hall
Last but not least, one of the most authentic places in the city. Eliseevs Food Hall is a confectionery, café, restaurant and grocery store. It is even difficult to imagine so many options in one place, right? The store is on one of the busiest avenues in the city, Nevsky, so it is very popular with tourists and locals alike.
Her atmosphere is very “ostentation”, with a lot of gold and classic furniture. Regarding confectionery, the sweets are beautiful and delicious. Ah, another good thing is that they sell various types of cookies and chocolates that you can buy to take on outings and eat as snacks!
I was delighted by all these places and I can’t wait to finally try traditional Russian desserts. While we’re not there yet, you can watch videos from other trips on our channel 😉
