We typically don't repeat restaurants while on holiday as we like to try as many different spots a possible, but we made an exception with Rukis. The restaurant has a cosy modern/country chic style, the wait staff are polite and friendly, and the food and...coffee are excellent, and at very reasonable prices with most dishes around 6-8 EUR. I highly recommend Rukis to others and look forward to eating here again the next time I'm in Tallinn. I hope readers will find my review and photos helpful.

Lovely cafe. I ate breakfast / brunch in there on a couple of days. Nice breakfast selection, snacks and a laid back place where it’s nice to sit and have a coffee.

There was a very small selection of options for dietary restricted person (gluten free, vegan). Expected better made food for the price.

First walked into Rukis on a whim and were pleasantly surprised by the pastries offered and the great coffee. We went back 2 more times on our Tallinn holiday. The raspberry tortelet was my favorite sweet and my lady loved the cinnamon roll.

Lovely cafe with good selections of cakes. Coffee and tea bit pricey but i understand that because of location. Friendly young waitress brought our order to table. Best pavlova i have ever had.

The food and coffee was good but I asked for strong cappuccino which meant they added an extra shot and charged me normal cappuccino 3.50 eur plus espresso 3eur, total 6.50eur for my small cup of cappuccino, this is really quite expensive. The first lady...with pinkish hair didn’t seem very friendly and didn’t smile once but the dark haired young lady was super friendly and nice and we’d like to say a big thank you to her (visited 15 Aug 11am).More
