Schastye, which means "happiness", is perhaps one of the happiest places in all of St. Petersburg. This chain of dessert cafes, which has three locations in St. Petersburg and one in Moscow, offers an eclectic range of artisanal desserts and pastries in upscale, plush interiors. Two cherubs serve as the café's logo, and the themes of angels and the heavens permeate the décor. Schastye has a full menu of lunch and dinner offerings, including sandwiches and salads, as well as meat and fish entrees and a seasonal rotation of fresh new creations. But the true source of happiness at Schastye is its regularly updated dessert menu. The dessert menu at Schastye is jam packed with "happy" delights and covers everything from cakes and pies to ice cream and sorbet to housemade chocolates and candies and specialty cookies. If the sweet-toothed kid inside you can dream it up, it probably appears on the menu at Schastye. This plethora of desserts is accompanied by an equally diverse coffee and tea menu and impeccable plating techniques and service.
