Shokoladnitsa is a popular coffee-shop chain in Russia and has branches all over Moscow. It is Russia's very own Starbucks. In addition to a wide selection of tea, or "chai" as the locals call it, you will find conventional coffee drinks like Espresso, Cappuccino, Latte, Americano, etc. Americano and Amerikansky Kofe are apparently totally different drinks. Americano is Espresso diluted with hot water, while Amerikansky Kofe is drip coffee.

As with everything else, Moscow's coffee scene has changed tremendously since the 90's, and Shokoladnitsa is symbolic of that transformation. Now, Espresso is available and consumed everywhere in the city. In this regard, Russia's coffee has been "internationalised." In the past, coffee in Russia was synonymous with coffee prepared by percolating or, to a lesser extent, with Turkish coffee (known as Kofe po-Vostochnomu). These are not available in Shokoladnitsa.

Nevertheless, Shokoladnitsa offers a uniquely Russian experience. They have a wide range of light food, including bliny (Russian pancakes), and sweets.
