This place is perfect for a cake and coffee stop. We had the almond creme cake, caramel shortbread type cake/cookie, and fruit pastry. My son loved the hot chocolate. You can also get hot drinks to go.
This is one of my favourite places to eat in Tallinn. The decor is pretty much as it was in the days of the USSR and the service is only slightly better but it does have atmosphere. There is usually a queue for bread when...it opens. The cakes are really wonderful and the meals are excellent value.More
I only gave it 3 stars because you can't really justify more BUT I do recommend you visit if in Tallinnn for more than a few days. This place opened in 1947 and has not been made trendy. Service is basic. No smiles allowed. But...their coffee and pastries are fine and in fact their pillimeenis (if you want a meal) are excllent.More
Nostalgic atmosphere of old sovjet times, but good cuisine with plenty of typical estonian dishes, big hall and one separate small hall. Atracts elderly people for its style, cuisine and relatively low prices.
The aesthetic is distinctly austere, dark, gloomy decor (unchanged since the time of the Soviet occupation), and the service is brusque and unsmiling - although they do grasp requests in English without trouble. The prices are very low, but the cakes are delicious. An interesting...vestige of a time long gone.More
If this was in England the facade would make you believe that you were going into a greasy spoon. Maybe that is harsh, you decide. But hidden inside is one of the best cafes that I visited in Tallinn. In my opinion it had the...best selection of pastries on offer and they were so big. To drink, just grab a filter coffee, it's really good and the same price as everywhere else in town. This is perfectly located to stop off at on your way to or coming back from Kadriorg.More
Hard to define this cafeteria.
The furniture is really old style, it reminded me ‘70s-‘80s. I found it pleasant, as not modern as in many other cafeteria.
Staff pretty cold (with us, as with Estonian customers we heard chatting and laughing). Not a big deal...however.
Harder to describe food and drinks.
American coffee was really American, very watery
Then we tried to get a white milk with some cocoa powder on the top (pretty common in Italy, where we live). It ended up with milk and some melt chocolate inside. Not exactly the same, but I understand that what is common in my country, although simple, could not be in others.
And unfortunately maybe we picked the wrong things to eat. A slice of cake more sugary than sugar itself, a croissant stuffed with a sort of mashed pork meat (or was it chicken ?!?).
The choice for food is big, nothing to say, and I’m sure that many things are really good.
Maybe we have just been unlucky.
For sure we’ll go back there if we are in Tallinn again. At least to have a second chance.More
