Not a bad place for breakfast or brunch. I had the Cava with the full works, pretty sizeable portion, enough for two. The sausages are very small though. A good experience in the right weather, luckily for us it was very hot and sitting on...the terrace is very pleasant.More

The waffles were good, but the price remain expensive for the quantity. Hopefully the place is nice in pispala hill.

A popular place, so I headed here after reading all the positive reviews . Only a fool pays these prices !!!! I chose continental breakfast for 11 euros . What did I get ? Two tablespoons of fruit salad , a glass of juice from...a carton ( not freshly squeezed ), a dry boring , tiny scone with a teaspoon of jam and one quarter slice of banana bread and unlimited amount of weak coffee . NEVER AGAIN !More

Nice cafe in Pispala. Brunch is very popular so recommended to reserve table in advance. Ate Whole works with added blueberries and house ice tea. Very good variety of different foods from pancakes to scrambled eggs. Visit here when in Tampere.

It is always a pleasure to visit Cafe Pispala and their unique atmosphere. This time we had brunches and did not get disappointed. My Continental breakfast with the additional yoghurt-berry parfait was just perfect. My partner had Beef&Chorizo&Eggs and it was a plenty. Tasty meals,...good and friendly service. Only the meals could have been brought at same time. Hungry as I was, had I almost eaten my meal before my partner got his. My fault though, greedy me. If you arrive with own vehicle, please take notice of the special parking conditions. You might need to walk a bit. Also reckon that there are people living close to the restaurant and their privacy need to be respected. I highly recommend this lovely restaurant in the central beautiful Pispala.More

This wonderful little café is located in a pretty neighbourhood in Tampere serves the most amazing american breakfasts with fruits, pancake, sausage, bacon, eggs you name it. Coffee, tea and water are complimentary but you can also buy a selection of mimosas and other drinks....I recomend ”the Whole works” on the menu of you have never been here before.More

We went to the Cafe Pispala because it had good reviews. However, in my opinion, the food was absolutely terrible. Not again. (Okay, coffee was good and the place was pretty.)
