This location is a great example of something you don’t find often: a shoe/bags/accessories store combined with a full, nice cafe to have breakfast, lunch or a coffee break, even a place to work without being interrupted and with a nice view on the busy city center.
The store is by Ukraine-based brand of leather goods Kachorovska Atelier. This is the second location: the first one is in Podil, where the guys started with their small atelier of leather goods. Now they’ve grown and are well-known in Kiev. You can buy shoes/bags/accessories in the shop or order a pair custom-sized and tailored for you.
The cafe takes the most of the 1st floor and is spacious enough to spend time there working, for lazy breakfast and a coffee break. You’d never say it is possible to cook salads, soups, breakfasts, sandwiches right here in the same room, without even a tiny smell from the kitchen. And absolutely all pastry, including croissants is cooked or baked right there –no delivery. My favorites are: scrambled eggs with spinach and a tiny-and-nothing-special-looking cookie with sea salt. It is magnificent. And yes, coffee: doppio+fresh orange juice is a must-taste. Go on!
