Coffee 3 is located in the Lenpolygraphmash building in Saint Petersburg. It was a factory in the past; nowadays Lenpolygraphmash is a technopark, one of the main goals of which is the development of technological entrepreneurship. There’re modern manufactures, offices and cafes on the city block.
Coffee 3 is located on the top (5th) floor of a former printing press. The building has very high ceilings, so the big space of the coffeehouse is divided into 2 floors. The huge panoramic windows let in a lot of light.
Coffee 3 is very popular among locals. There are a lot of young people here. On weekdays, the hall is full of freelancers with laptops. I hear talks about startups, California, new projects here and there. It starts to seem that I’m in the open space of some international IT company.
Employees from the nearest offices also gather here: in the morning to drink coffee and have breakfast, for lunch in the afternoon.
There are several zones in the cafe: long tables with sockets for work, a wide table for large company, zones with low coffee tables, armchairs and sofas. There is a soft comfortable area with pillows where it’s necessary to remove shoes. I like it the most.
The baristas makes coffee exactly the way I like it.
The main dishes are trendy bowls (all the ingredients are collected in one round plate) and Chinese noodles. There are dishes for vegetarians.
The secure bicycle parking on the 1st floor is a big plus.
