Located right in the center of Rostov, Baget-Pashtet is a cozy little café and bakery, inviting visitors in with its warm light and a lovely sign over the entrance. Everything is so comfy here – from tables and chairs, soft armchairs and sofa, to a large round table, ideal for a big group of friends gathered to celebrate a special event.
Set in various shades of silver and grey, the relaxing interior was well thought through, with objects and pictures that take you back to France in the 60’s, when French ladies were recognised and admired for their sense of style and the laissez-faire attitude, and gentlemen — dressed in suits and hats with wide flaps — smoked cigars and read the newspapers with a pensive look.
The café’s name translates as ‘Baguette-Pâté’, so its only natural that they specialize in all kinds of baked goodies, like crispy baguettes and biscuits, and deliciouspâtés. However, they are far from being the only items on the menu, though definitely must-haves, especially terrine duck pâté with pine nuts (≈$3), coming with a rye bun as a compliment. If you fancy a main course, here are some options worth trying: a duck leg in orange sauce with mixed salad (≈$3) and a side of French fries (≈$2), pike in Spanish served with chickpeas, fragrant bacon, stewed in tomato sauce with spinach (≈$5) or home-roasted turkey with potatoes, mushrooms, pickles and Aioli sauce (≈$6). The menu items vary depending on the season.
A cozy atmosphere, wonderful service, large, hearty portions of delicious meals, all at very friendly prices – definitely a winning lunch option!
