Rudy’s Coffee to Go – The tiniest coffee spot

You might know that some St.Pete’s buildings have these cut-edges, walk-throughs and columns near the crossroads to make walking easier.

What you might be wondering about is why one of the columns at Liteynyy smells like coffee (and good coffee!). Well, what had previously been a military spot to watch the street, has now become Rudy’s.

You might also notice the queue of young and hip coffee drinkers (look at the picture). There is little room to wait inside so all the queue is gathered outside. The coffee is cheap and great — why not wait for a bit? I sometimes hug dogs and chat with strangers in this queue.

The drinks are simple: espresso, cappuccino, latte and the “Red Dachshund”: 4-shot cappuccino (meaning there are four shots of espresso in this cappuccino) for all the sleeping beauties.

There is a lot of fan art at Rudy’s. My special pleasure is to wait for my Americano coffee (no sugar, no milk) while I watch all the pictures, citations and painted coffee cups around.

Rudy’s is such an informal venue they do not have a facebook page (or a website). So head to their VK social network page or to their Instagram profile to get their news (or to browse pictures).

Also check out their new “window in the wall”: at Ligovsky 33-35, on the left hand from the Graffiti hostel, from 08:00 to 22:00.
