One of Sakhalin's best bakeries with sticky Danishes, rich eclairs and other sweet temptations. Decent coffees and loose teas too. Not easy to spot from the road. There's a second Melnitsa 10 blocks north.
A well-situated cafe with comfy chairs, sweet desserts and savoury snacks including quiche (R130) and pay-by-weight pies filled with meat and cabbage, mushrooms and other ingredients. Decent coffee too.
