Shokoladnitsa

Those who live in Moscow remember Shokoladnitsa chain of coffee houses from the previous century. Irkutsk got one in 2014.

This is a place for a family visit, for planning routes, talking and eating delicious snacks.

Shokoladnitsa has a kid menu and a playroom. The little ones won’t get bored while their parents choose what to order. Ordering food, by the way, might take a while — the menu has that many options of food and beverages. We recommend a halva latte, hot chocolate and fruit desserts, which are the top-sellers in Shokoladnitsa.

Castro Café

This coffee shop chain can be found in four different locations: in Jam Mall and Karamel malls, in the 130th district and in the airport. The airport coffee house works 24/7. While waiting for your plane to depart, you can chat with your friends over a cup of coffee for as long as you want to. All Castro cafes have a youthful relaxed atmosphere. Good music plays in the background, and bartenders and waiters greet you like an old friend.

Visit a Castro café for an original recipe sandwiches, smoothies, good coffee and green tea latte, made of Japanese tea topped with delicate milk foam.

Double coffee is located in the heart of the city. Visitors examine the unusual interior and take pictures of the coffee shop. Camera, laptops and smartphones work tirelessly as all tables have built-in charging devices.

Even if you stop by for a minute, try the coffee made in a sand-heated Turkish jug or in a siphon. Not many other places have these options.
