The description is based on data from August 2017.

The cafe is sutuated in Central District of Volgograd.

Opening hours: Sun – Thu: from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. Fri, Sat: from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

The cafe's name literally means toad is strangling. In Russian this is an idiomatic synonym to stinginess or jealousy. The idiom is used to describe feelings of a person who wants to buy something but is hesitating because of stinginess, or when a person is upset because of having spent money, or when a person is envying somebody who is richer, more successful etc.

I don't think the cafe's name means that the prices are too high there. This is simply to create eccentric atmosphere. That's why toy toads are everywhere in the cafe.

The service was good. The waitress advised us what beverages to choose and what we should't order because of strange taste.

The cafe has two halls situated on the first and second floors.
