You go by busy Liteiny. You see a door with a neon “Gotcha” on it. You enter.
This was originally meant to be just a hallway leading upstairs to creative companies and fashion showrooms — but now it’s not. It’s a third wave coffee spot with the tiny sitting zone under the stairs, quiet and filled with the aroma of the specialty coffee & nice music.
They also have some food: sandwiches, desserts, cookies, cakes — always fresh, desserts come from Crumbs bakery — and baristas are ready to chat and smile. It’s a pleasure to visit this tiny spot (and it’s also always tasty there).
Lately, the spacious area with additional tables was locked for the owner’s use so it’s not so easy to find a place to sit because there are just two or three tables available. Last time I ate the cherry pie sitting at the windowsill, it was also nice. But anyway you could order takeaway and eatdrink in the nearby Akhmatova garden.
Go to their Instagram profile to feel the atmosphere. They are funny.
