After a busy Sunday morning visiting car showrooms across Moscow, we decided to rest for a coffee at a little café called Munger Bakery, tucked away near the BMW showroom on Leninsky Prospekt. The café was a little hidden away, so as with many establishments in Moscow we were not sure what to expect – we nervously peeked in and were delighted to be greeted with the wonderful aroma of baking bread. When we saw the array of cakes, sweets and savoury pies at Munger Bakery, the thought of just ordering a coffee was an impossibility.
After several minutes at the counter trying to decide what to opt for, on this occasion, we shared a homemade chicken and mushroom short-crust pie (and if you are British think just like your Mum used to make!), a carrot cake and some freshly brewed coffee. None of it disappointed, but the pie was so good that we bought one to take home with us.
On our way out we realised that they have a little shop at the side selling their wares and again we couldn’t resist indulging in some of their home-made pastries. With food this good, I will have to ensure I don’t visit too often! They also sell a selection of pelmeni, cutlets, Greek pies, and much more that I could translate as unfortunately for me it was only in Russian.
I will definitely add Munger Bakery to my list of Sunday morning breakfast treats and the next time I need a cake for a special occasion I know this will the place I will go to.
