An institution that pushes you out of the monotonous everyday life and sets you in a positive mood already from the very sign. I am very sorry that, for some unknown reason, a photograph of the building's facade with a signboard and entrance doors has not survived. There is very creative and unambiguous, characteristic font a la newspaper «Truth» the main options of the Mustard cafe were indicated: stack, dumplings and cheburek. «Hello natural selection participants» and stuff like that - in a pioneering way, boldly, fervently and with graceful irony. In general, those who lived in the Soviet Union will not be able to pass by - I could not. By the way, judging by the reviews - the Soviet past does not have a beneficial effect on everyone, there are those who are nervous and demand a complaint book.
The content of the article
Cafe Mustchitsa has three dining areas: a summer veranda with umbrellas, a main hall with a balcony (the balcony is not for visitors, it seems) and a distant nook, which also did not appear in the photo. It was just jam-packed with married couples and children, so I didn't embarrass people with a lens. In the main hall there are high tables with bar stools, and in the nook there is already standard cafe furniture from miniature tables and two or three chairs around each. In general, there is a different location for everyone. The designs and graffiti are fun, borderline foul in places, just like the posters.
The waiter girl was in a benevolent mood and smiled with a completely off-duty smile, we talked about the menu, she recommended me a drink to warm up after a chilly wind (I walked from Rosa Khutor itself, and the weather was rain and gray all morning).
She brought me an order after an adequate time, I just had time to sentence the mulled wine on the jaegermeister and swam from fatigue and warmth. The dumplings turned out to be with a thick dough, so I would have cooked them for another five minutes, and the Olivier salad was served in a faceted glass and it smiled at me. Rumbled with pleasure with a spoon in a glass with a glass holder, ate, asked for the bill. A completely positive, light place with character and humor. Will definitely come back next time.

An original cafe with an interior inspired by the Soviet era, but not at all like a scoop. Great quality food and good music. Inexpensive.
