I admit that I just love pies! So when I read the reviews here, I just had to check this place out...especially as my hotel was just a few steps away. Outside it's not much to look at... but as you turn the corner, you...get "that aroma" that something really good is cooking inside...and believe me you are in for a treat. These guys make excellent pies of every kind - both the sweet and the salty type... I visited twice and got to try in total 4 of their pies... in my opinion the "chicken and mushroom" one was the best. Do try the "house coffee" I found it also excellent!More

I reviewed this place in 2015. We visit it every time we are in Tallinn and this year, during our 10 days stay in town, we have been there four times. We just cannot resist to their perfect, delicious and diverse pais and excellent real...tea, probably the best in town. All pies are just from a stove and you can also take one whole with you as take-away. From mine point of view, the best pi is a traditional cabbage pie, but fresh berry, mushrooms and poppy are also perfect. Order jasmine tea and have a good timeMore

very good place, really nice pies, sweet or savoury. Nice attitude from the staff. Only reason it's not 5 stars is because the music is too loud for me, but that may not put other punters off.

We stopped here accidentally. Had some of the savory pies that were layed out on the bar and had omelettes and fresh squeezed juice. There was something really nice about the place and endearing that it was run by a bunch of young Russian guys....I would definitely recommend going here for breakfast.More

Excellent chicken pie and a very good rasberry pie! Both delicious, and we bought a cherry pie to go.

Very tasty take away pies although on rather expensive side. Worth to try a unique Russian style pies. You can buy the whole pie or a quarter. Don't forget to try a unique Raf-coffee, created in modern Russia and considered to be number 1 coffee...drink in Russia.More

Went for a casual lunch with family. Took different salty pies for a start and finished with sweet pies. All them were beautiful looking and tasted as great!

This is the most unique meal I ever had! I come from holland all the way to tallinn. They are so kind and helpful. I had a great time and advise anyone in the nearby area to visit the nice and cosy place with amazingly...unique filled breads in all sort of flavours. Chicken, turkey, tomato, mozzerella, potato and many more kinds. Hope u enjoy visiting this place!More
