Almost all HSE buildings have cafeterias and snack bars. The menu is quite diverse, offering a choice of appetizers, soups, main courses, desserts and soft drinks. Meals normally include vegetarian alternatives. Prices are moderate: the average cost of a full meal usually does not exceed 250-300 roubles. University cafeterias usually have plenty of space (except for ‘rush hour’ at 1:00-3:00 pm) and are a good place to dine or enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. 

The main building cafeteria is located at 20 Myasnitskaya Ulitsa on the ground floor. In the building across the road, at 9 – 11 Myasnitskaya Ulitsa, the cafeteria is on the second floor. Visitors are kindly asked to remove their coats and jackets before entering university cafeterias.
