As I promised, I continue making new posts about the places worth visiting in Moscow for the Places rubric. And today I want to tell you more about the cafe in the heart of the capital where you can both have a nice lunch and drink with friends after the working day. Cafe and bar Iskra opened just in the end of 2015 year and has already gained many fans.
The interior of the place is made according to the bloggers Feng Shui rules. A very large window, through which the most important thing for bloggers is received – sunlight. What for? To make great snaps of course. The next thing that will take your breath away is a long bar table with high chairs – simply stunning. All the guests tables and the tabletop are made from marble – just search this hashtag on Instagram and you will see many cool and inspiring marble things that are the latest trend right now. Of course, the owners of the cafe didn’t forget about the thing – the crockery. All the cups and plates are done in pastel colors and the thick glasses and carafes for water are simply crying for photos. Well, if you are a blogger and you are searching for the new shots – this place is waiting for you.
But if you are hungry citizens or tourists, who are here, by the way, lodgers too, than you are welcomed for lunch or dinner 🙂 Menu may be can not boast an abundance of food, but all the dishes are prepared and served so amazingly, that the volume of the menu doesn’t prevent the place to grow and prosper. Cafe’s menu is mainly consists of two ingredients, chicken and eggs that can be found quietly in all points: in salads, sandwiches and as a separate dish. If you always dreamed to order one day a whole (or a part) grilled chicken than while you are in this place you really need to fulfill the dream. As a side dish you will be offered a brand french fries with different kinds of sauce. Salads are here very big and nutrition too, that is very good, especially for those who doesn’t eat meat 🙂 And what about coffee? Well, that’s the different story. In Moscow I know only two places where you can find really tasty and gentle coffee – so, this is the third place.
