Tucked into the side of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, this is the perfect place to come for a snack before or after a concert, or just to eavesdrop on the musicians rehearsing during the day. There's a huge indoor area, excellent coffee, and one of the city's best summer gardens, which overlooks a statue of Tchaikovsky. Apart from the usual coffee drinks, Coffeemania has a large menu with well-prepared Italian, Russian, and Japanese dishes. There are other branches all
over the city, including one with a nice terrace near Belorussky Station.
