Russian breakfasts at restaurants and hotels can vary and sometimes dishes more resembling dinner such as sausages and pasta can be served. The dishes mentioned below though make a delicious start to the day.

Kasha (Каша)
You cannot talk about Russian cuisine without mentioning kasha which is the Russian version of porridge and is a firm favourite and not just as a breakfast. Kasha can be made out of any grain for example millet (пшённая каша), semolina (манная каша), oatmeal (овсяная) and rice (рисовая), but the most popular is probably buckwheat (гречневая каша).
