Three most popular coffee places of Nur-Sultan

5 minutes to read

They say there are two types of hot beverage drinkers: coffee and tea lovers. The information provided here will be equally valuable for both types and those who adore tasty food. You already made a long journey to reach the place, so you definitely deserve a cup of tea or coffee, right? The classic style of every traveler is striving to find a nice place to take a little break and chill while having a drink. Sometimes it gets hard to find out whether the spot is good, especially when you lack the time. So, here is the list of the most popular and trusting coffee chains in Nur-Sultan.

Marrone Rosso

The spot belongs to worldwide coffee chains called Aroma. The service and food standards are definitely self-explanatory. When you hear Marrone Rosso, it sounds so European; Italian, I would say. However, it is located in the biggest cities of Kazakhstan: Almaty and Nur-Sultan. There is one more location of the same café brand at the airport. So, you have a great chance to taste the quality one more time upon your departure.

Menu

The meals offered in the café are of European cuisine, so no wonder that apart from locals you might meet lots of foreign travelers there. First of all, the place is popular for tasty snacks and coffee. They serve all types of coffee: short, long, hot, cold and many more alcohol or non-alcohol drinks. I would suggest you try special salads of Marrone Rosso. There is one thing to say about it: once you pop, you can’t stop. The salads are very hearty and delicious. They also have a seasonal menu, which gives a sense of variety and a fresh approach in serving clients.

The important amenity of the place is that it is self-service. Also, you have the possibility to see the preparation of your order. Once you made an order, you are free to take your seat and wait until you hear your name. Do not worry about the timing, as their top priority is to serve fast reflecting high quality.  By the way, do not forget to ask for a membership card, which gives you a bonus for your purchases at the entire Marrone Rosso chain. You may find the locations of their cafes using any maps. The employees of the café speak English, which adds to the experiences for international travelers.
