    Cafe Krez: Chicken filet with rice and vegetables
    1 more image

    On our second evening we directly headed off to the pedestrianised street ul. Sovyetskaya to look for a suitable restaurant for dinner. As a free table on the outdoor terrace of Cafe Krez was available we took a seat here.

    The menu offers a good selection of local dishes. As main course I opted for a chicken filet with cheese (15260 BYR). Side dishes had to be chosen extra, so I ordered rice with vegetables (7180 BYR). To drink I had a local Alivaria Extra beer for 9150 BYR.

    After dinner we went inside to make use of the WiFi for a small charge. Like everywhere in Belarus, the passport has to be shown and registered before going online.

    Art Cafe: Viennese Schnitzel
    4 more images

    On our first evening in Brest we strolled along the pedestrianised city centre, especially the street ul. Sovyetskaya to check for a suitable restaurant to dine.

    We decided for the Art Cafe, because quite a few people were sitting on the outdoor terrace and some were even having dinner. We took a seat at a free table, so that we could enjoy some people watching on Sovyetskaya Street.

    After already 5 days in Belarus, we noticed for the first time people speaking German in our vicinity. Obviously they were not tourists, but on business in Brest.

    The interior of the Art Cafe is equipped tastefully with dark wooden furniture. If I remember correctly, then the menu was even bilingual (Russian, English). It offered a small selection of main dishes as well as potato pancakes (drainiki), salads, pasta dishes and cakes.

    I opted for a Viennese Schnitzel with vegetables and salad (37500 BYR), a Banana Split (14370 BYR) and a local Stavka beer (5690 BYR). Everything was yummy and we enjoyed our time in the Art Cafe, although staff was a bit slow, which on the other hand is quite normal in this part of Europe.

    Cafe Talisman: Smoked sausages
    2 more images

    On our last day in Brest we had again dinner in one of the many cafes in the street ul. Sovyetskaya. We realised that most of the restaurants and cafes in other streets were often empty.

    This time we decided for the Cafe Talisman, which like most of the other places, has a small outdoor terrace facing the pedestrianised street, from where we could watch the world pass by.

    The menu offers bit of everything from local meat dishes to pizza. I opted for smoked sausages and a so called snow white salad, which consisted of cumcumber and cabbage. With 16350 BYR for the sausages and 5390 BYR for the salad both items were reasonably priced and tasty.

    To drink I had a local Stavka beer (6320 BYR), which came in a nice glass with the coat of arms of Brest.

    Cafe Zeus: Black tea and buns
    2 more images

    As our hotel didn't offer any breakfast, we had a look around the city centre in search of a cafe for breakfast. More by chance we spotted Cafe Zeus, which is actually a bakery with several indoor seatings and a Iong glass counter.

    The interior is relatively large and kept in a simple style. Laminated menus are available on the tables, but most of the things on offer can also be seen in the counter.

    We checked the menu, which offered a wide variety of pastries, filled buns, waffles as well as non-alcoholic hot and cold drinks. We decided to order directly at the counter. I chose a bun with jam and a flavourful bun for 1500 BYR each. To drink I had a black tea for 3500 BYR. The plate cost an extra of 650 BYR.

    Everything was yummy and we enjoyed a relaxed breakfast in Cafe Zeus.

    Cafe Citadel
    2 more images

    When we visited Brest Fortress, we decided to have a late lunch snack in the Cafe Citadel, which is actually part of the fortress.

    The cafe is simply furnished and when we visited the place one early afternoon it was almost empty. A small menu was on the table, but we chose from what was available.

    I opted for a chiburekki, which is a sort deep fried dough turnover with a minced meat filling. I also had a typical Russian berries drink, called mors. With 8000 BYR the bill was reasonably priced and we enjoyed our short break in the Cafe Citadel.
