Russia Coffee & Food

Russian in Harbin

Step back in time at this antique cafe-restaurant decorated with period furniture and possessions that once belonged to Nina, a Harbin resident from 1911 to her death in 2001. The cafe owner purchased her estate (including portraits and photographs) and put it on display. It's a lovely spot for a tea (or vodka!), but the Russian offerings such as borsch and pirozhki (savoury pies) are just so-so.

The restaurant is 20m east off Zhongyang Dajie along Xitoujiao.
