Eating out for breakfast in Moscow becomes more and more popular. A lot of restaurants and cafes keep up with this trend and offer special menus to start your day on a positive note. We have personally picked the best 7 places for you to have breakfast in Moscow!


Even if you do not live in this famous historic hotel, you have a chance to have breakfast in Metropol main hall, under its stained-glass dome. At the buffet line, you can find traditional Russian treats such as blini (thin pancakes) with red caviar or salted salmon as well as several egg dishes, seasonal fruits and a variety of dairy products. The breakfast is accompanied by live harp playing and sparkling wine!
To enjoy a perfect morning in Metropol, you need to buy the certificate online and book the table at least 24 h in advance.


Dr. Zhivago

The best place to have breakfast with a view of the Kremlin. The restaurant is located on the ground floor of the legendary Hotel Naсional. It is known as a modern Russian cuisine restaurant. Dr. Zhivago breakfast menu is not less diverse than the main one. You can find there more than 20 egg dishes, all imaginable types of porridge and pancakes with a variety of fillings! For the bravest eaters, we recommend trying a hot sandwich with oxtails.



Another place that will make you travel in time. The history of Buloshnaya (which means bakery in Russian) begins in 1898. Closed during the soviet period, the restaurant was reopened more than 100 years later. But it has conserved the interior of pre-revolutionary Russia including its cake vitrine, a piano made in 1818 and furniture reminiscent of the 19th century. For breakfast, you can find both traditional Russian treats (pancakes, porridge) and international classics English breakfast, eggs Benedict).
