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.

In the Rotermann Quarter, you'll find this cave-like little cafe with a broad menu including lots of vegetarian and vegan options (and it's kosher which was surprising). Nice staff, a little slow, but cool little lunch place.

This cafe pretending to be somehow natural and kosher in country where kosher is hardly available ( or at least nothing fresh kosher is available) is serving dreadful food in which at least 90 % of ingredients which are frozen. I asked them from where...they are getting kosher ingredients and waitress proudly explained me is ,, all frozen,,. Taste is artificial. Kosher food serving from fresh ingredients, you can find in Germany, USA, Israel is a great experience but serving food made from frozen ( even bagels) is a shame for all Israeli and kosher cuisine. I really dont know is it really problem to make fresh kosher bagels instead of serving frozen ones or its just shown how people managing place doesnt know anything about cooking or are simply too lazy. Microwave is also a king there. I really doubt their food is fully kosher. Instead of pretending being ,,modern kosher,, or if its modern doesnt have to be fresh and kosher, better open ,,alle american bagel,, and sell something what will be at least fresh. Central European and Russian kosher food have long tradition , so serving such things is awful idea. Just after serving food waitress went to smoke outside, doesnt really look apetizing.More

Insane waiting time for food in an empty restaurant. My points for Ruby would be better if the food would have been worth the wait, sadly It wasn’t. Food wasn’t bad but it lacked taste. there was nothing special about the things we ordered to...bring us back. Place itself was nice and clean and nothing to complain about the staff. Without the long wait, I would have given 3/5More

My friend and I decided to work from a cafe for a few hours today. I found good ratings on this cafe online and we decided to try it. I had an avocado bagel and it was delicious. The ladies helping us were super nice,...helped us make up our mind on what to order and made us feel really comfortable. We ended up staying for an extra coffee and deserts. The environment is also nice, and the area it’s in (Rotermanni) is great to visit. Definitely recommend!More

I am extremely glad to know this amazing place. The atmosphere, energy of this place really inspires me every time I come in this wonderful cafe. Staff is very friendly and cheerful. Food is unbelievably tasty and interesting. Also I want to focus on very...convenient location, namely the centre of the city (really conveniently). I think that this is one of the most interesting, extraordinary and pleasant place in Tallinn. Highly recommend it!!! Thank you, Ruby!More

We ordered 2 bagels and Beef shashuka. Bagels were tasteless and were hard to eat from the wraps, no salt and they fall apart when you eat it, they also give very small plastic gloves to eat those.. Shashuka was watery, tasteless, saltless and was...served on aluminum plate, and we got only one plastic spoon to eat it with even we told we share that. Also no pita bread included, so we ordered bread and it was rubbery cheap grade sticky bread. Pretty nasty i would say. Also the waiter didn't even serve water to table or ask if we drink anything. Place looked nice!More
