pending time in a café is a tradition in Astana. Coffee houses and cafes get particularly crowded in winter when the cold drives everyone indoors, eager to sit next to a warm fireplace with a cup of hot chocolate. Most Cafés offer a reasonable menu, but are less expensive and less formal than restaurants. Coffee houses are also popular and offer a variety of coffees, teas, drinks, desserts and limited food items, such as pizzas and sushi. Both coffee houses and cafés offer bar service with alcoholic drinks. Many offer free Internet connection.

Description: Some people would consider Cafestar more of a restaurant than a café. But we will go with the name and consider it a café, although a rather fancy one. The atmosphere is high class, with photos of movie stars on the walls. The food is very good. The place is pricy. This is not your neighborhood café. But it is perfect for inviting guests to a pleasant evening with good food and wine.
