Cafe sign “Freakadely”.


The other day the wife “dragged” me into a small mono cafe which is located 20 meters from the Great Intercession (Bolshaya Pokrovskaya street), that in the center of Nizhny Novgorod. I remember, earlier the cafe “Fly” was located here, we were visiting it when were students. As my wife says now it is a fashion trend, Cafe “Freakadely” specializing in meatballs.

I remember ever since, that there is very little room and sometimes we sat on the fence next, but yielded to persuasion and we “only looked”. In the end, not at all disappointed, mostly because here there are cider “St Anton”, for some time now I have great respect for it.

A little bit about meatballs

An important issue for visitors to our great city is the satisfaction of basic needs, namely, where to go to eat in Nizhny Novgorod. How cool I wrote :). In particular, in the center and preferably with an optimal price / quality ratio. I think that the residents of the city are set to self periodically this question .

One of these place, in our opinion, cafe “Samarkand» , located only 200 meters from the pedestrian street Bolshaya Pokrovskaya (Large Intercession) which is Attraction Nizhny Novgorod). Somewhere in city there is the institution of the same name. Be careful not to confuse ;) .

Find it quite simple – you need to walk along the tram tracks on the street October. Well, the view from the outside, of course, is not impressive, but we did go for the food and cheap beer, so just forgive and come in.

In Samarkand?

Inexpensive cafe in the center of Nizhny Novgorod: DejaVu

Tasty cafe

Slogan of Cafe DejaVu

Slogan of Cafe “DejaVu”. Almost true.


In category which contains information where to eat in Nizhny Novgorod, I can not mention about Cafe DejaVu, which is located practically on Gorky square, that is in the city centre and close to the main tourist routes.

Why I “must” :) to write about it a worthy place!? So, firstly, we visit it on average once per month or two. Secondly, twice we celebrated the new year here. Third, in spite of everything, in it the food is not very expensive and quite delicious prolonged period of several years. Although the first couple of short years there was tastier, but maybe it just seems to us.

Rather, probably, that tasty food is the root cause for the “firstly” and “secondly”. About the slogan on the banner (see photo above) that I would still adjusted so: the best of available :)

Check for taste
