Cafeteria in Minsk

This large, upscale stolovaya (cafeteria) with Latvian roots has a huge array of food on display, so it's easy for non-Russian speakers: just point at what you want. Classic Russian soups and salads, grilled trout and cheesy meat dishes are highlights.

Lunchtime is always packed, but it's usually easy to find a seat among the curious faux-medieval village decor. Another branch is on vul Nyamiha.
