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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

My pasta salad was mixed up with the potatoe salad and then I was called stupid because I apparently did order it? And no I didn't. Because why would I order something I'm allergic to, like potatoes??? Long story short she ignored me then mixed...up my order and then another waitress made a change of salads. Also their talking behind the counter is more like yelling and they're making weird animal noises as well. Wtf is going on here? Been coming here the whole summer, and the young waitresses have been super nice and polite and now this old rude waitress?More

I was hunting for gingerbreads at our stay in Kuressaare and we ended up Vanalinna Kohvik. For our surprise it was also a hotel and a cafe with cosy rooms to sit. One was with black walls inside the big old chimney. Nice colours -...red walls, white candleholders and chairs, yellow wall lamps, piano, antique cupboards. It became one of our favourite places at once. We decided to have a tea and a hot chocolate and some biscuits. Hot chocolate was a proper thick drink. I ordered 1-2 biscuits from different kind from all the jars (which was probably awfully cumbersome for the seller to weigh one by one - but she didn’t complain). One kind was with mint and chocolate pieces, the other with cheese, then lemon biscuits, tiny hazelnut meringues, etc. And gingerbread. All were really nice. Recommend to visit this place at your stay!More

Best cakes in Tallinn with very reasonable prices. The interior is simple and young staff is friendly and helpfull. Try amazing Brita cake or tiramisu cake with only 1-3 euros.

We had high expectations due to the good ratings but unfortunately this place wasn't anywhere near what we had expected. Service unfriendly and slow, and the bread/pastries did not live up to the hype of the previous reviews. Could go back for a coffee, but...most likely we'll give it a miss.More

Very good place to get some old fashioned and traditional buns and cakes. And I mean old fashioned in a good way - like your grandma used to make, with love. They also serve lunch and heavier meals, so a perfect place to dine in...at all hours of the day.More
