Mad Espresso is good for brunch — and also it’s one of the best coffee spots in the city. Its location makes this cafe very local and unknown even for people living in Saint Petersburg, so you’re up for a nice coffee & meal in a hidden place.
You can come here to Skype, give English lessons, meet friends. I come here to read a proper paper book and have my V60 Ethiopia coffee (or to have a meeting; indeed, you need good food to be ready to have a discussion). You can also try their cascara drink (similar to some herbal teas) — or cascara ice cream.
They serve different soups, salads, eggs in different styles, sandwiches and lots of breakfast choices. Sneak to their Instagram feed to feel the atmosphere.
Some time ago, MET had been a small coffee van on Sennaya square. And look at them now. I mean it, come have a look and don’t forget to try some of their drinks and food!
