Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed the brunch! I’ve visited here several times and the quality has always been great. Portions are big and plenty. And the pancakes are one of the best I’ve ever had. Place is always busy, so I definitely recommend to book a table for...brunch. Otherwise you might get turned away.More

Pispala is a quaint and unique area of Tampere, definitely worth a visit. This was my first visit at Cafe Pispala, and I will definitely visit it again. I had a weekend brunch dish, "Vege stack" as a vegan version, and ordered vegan pancakes as...a dessert. It was a tad pricey, but the place was so beautiful that I paid for the atmosphere too. It was like being on a tourist trip in my old hometown! "The Vege Stack" was a fun dish: a stack of fried tortillas spread with bean stew, with toasted potatoes and vegetables in the middle. Not one of the best things I've eaten, but I was happy. But the vegan pancakes were exceptional! Not too sweet, airy and puffy, and the slightly tangy syrup worked well with them. I celebrated the meal with a cognac.More

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.)

During a drive through Tampere on work trip I visited this place after hearing that it is worth a visit. This time they had a Vietnamese week going on and while it was tasty bowl of noodles, ended up paying like 14-15 euros for a...lunch. A little too much for me unfortunately.More

We had pancake, omelet and beacon bruch at Cafe Pispala. Food was great, service was excellent. Place was crowded with young hipster like people. If you plan to have lunch or brunch during Saturdays or Sundays you should make a table reservation. Also note: it...might be difficult to park your car in the vicinity of this place. Park your car a bit further away and have a walk in Pispala. Also worth mentioning - coffee was great.More
