A very nice cafe in the observation tower. The place is really popular, so be prepared to stand in line though.

The location of the cafe is quite nice and the adjoining tower offers nice views. But the cafe itself is a bit overhyped. Selection is very limited and most people really choose to buy just the traditional doughnuts with some coffee. On summer weekends there...seems to be a long queue - always - so time you visit on weekdays (safe "corona distance" is impossible...). On weekends the very limited parking space is also a problem, as the city of Tampere is said to aggressively fining cars that are parked nearby...More

This is one of the must places to visit while being in Tampere. On the ground floor there is a coffee shop that makes their own fresh donuts that are famous in the area and we’ll know from Kummeli tv series. The taste is unique...to Tampere. While visit climb up tot he observatory to see the beautiful view of the Tampere as two beautiful lakes näsi- and pyhäjärvi are stretching far away as the eyes can see. It’s the highest point of the city. Especially during the winter the view is marvelous. Next to the tower there are nice walks around the forrest that is rich with berries and mushrooms during the autumn.More

We stopped here for a coffee and donuts after going up the tower and it was a bull's eye! Donuts were freshly made, still warm, soft inside and crispy outside, and with a touch of cardamom... Yummy! The place is not so big and we...occupied the last table, but it's worth waiting as generally people spend there around 15-20 minutes.More
