  • area / size 1,937 sqft
  • Year 2018
  • Location Kyiv, Ukraine,
  • It is a modern cozy bakery café to drop in when you are around the historic district of Kyiv city center. The café is specialized in homemade savory and sweet pies which are baked right in front of the visitors of the bakery. To focus the guests’ attention on the specialty, three large wood tables are integrated in the center of the first hall. They harmoniously match with the natural granite on the floor that smoothly continues up the walls.

    Two big halls are fitted in the café offering a selection of fresh-baked pastry in the first. The visitors have the opportunity to oversee the entire baking process and order some fragrant pies to take home. The second hall counts a large number of seating spaces for visitors. Several bright color accents are introduced in the interior: a blue sofa in the niche window, colorful panel in the head of the sofa and a bright burgundy restroom.

    This is the right place for anyone who is looking for a delicious brunch, a cozy meeting with a friend or just to enjoy themselves in the stylish homey atmosphere.
