They sell cold meat, boiled eggs, salads, bread, pastries, etc. in buffets. Tea, coffee, soft and alcoholic drinks are offered in hotel bars. Restaurants usually serve breakfast from around 8 to 10, lunch from around 12 to 14, dinner from around 6 to 10 p.m. Hotels can have state-run restaurants and privately run restaurants.

A café in Russia can be anything from an ice cream parlour (салон) to an elegant small restaurant. It always concentrates on a limited menu and serves pizza, hot sausages, pelmeni, the odd salad and sweet dishes. Cafes are often cheaper than restaurants, but they open and close earlier.
