FOOD

Strolling around the city builds up an appetite. Although Minsk is not famous for family cafés or children-friendly restaurants at every corner, some places are worth a visit when travelling with kids.

Žar-ptuška

Perhaps, this is the only remaining kids café from the Soviet past. It was temporarily shut down ‘due to loss-making operation caused by the beer sales ban’ but fortunately re-opened. Parents seem to like taking their kids there out of nostalgia for their own childhood memories and tastes. The costs are not completely childish, yet this big-windowed café is located right in the middle of the park and boasts a summer terrace with beautiful views of the park and the river. A lot of amusement machines.

Dziciačaja kaviarnja
Situated between Central Universal Department Store and Staličny supermarket, it used to be a children’s cafeteria renowned for milk shakes.

Lido I

This self-service restaurant offers a variety of local dishes diverse enough to satisfy a capricious light-eater. Although it offers no entertainment for kids, its interior decorations that change depending on the season can be a joy to watch. Just make sure that your little ones who may wish to explore the mill in the middle of the restaurant do not get into the artificial creek, because water in there is wet, indeed.
