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 spacious sitting zone under the stairs, quiet and filled with the aroma of coffee (they use “Rockets Roasters” 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).
You can, of course, get yourself takeaway coffee, but I enjoy asking for the “large” filter coffee pot, sitting on the back and reading by the window. Last time it was a Depeche Mode album I was listening to.
Go to their Instagram profile and try to imagine what can emerge inside a St.Pete’s building’s hallway in the historical city centre!
