Best coffee shop in Tampere

By far the best coffee shop in Tampere. Good coffee from Mokkamestarit. Great gelato. Quiche, mud cake, apple cake, cookies and of course the cinnamon buns are baked on premises. Lots of teas as well. Just an overall great establishment with all aspects considered. Has made its mark in Ojakatu and... read more

Good coffee, just baked cinnamon rolls, todays magazines and even the little library. You can also have some salt minibreads and pies, and delicious blueberry, strawberry, rasberry pies The service is nice and delicate. They have also many regular customers, whose preferences they remember.

Kahvila Runo is a cosy place with excellent atmosphere and tasty sugary and salty delights made in the same cafe. Good coffee and huge selection of teas. No wifi, but who needs it if you have someone local to talk to, or a fresh newspaper, or a poem book!

"Runo" or "Poem" is literally a book café, where the tables and windowsills are lined with books, mostly of poetry. When I was living in Tampere, it was one of my favourite places for reading. They have good selection of coffees and teas, locally produced chocolate (even for vegans!), pastries and ice creams (including Italian gelato). Highly recommended. Like my... More

Such a lovely place. Nicely decorated. Gluten free mudcake was to die for! Their selection offers salty pies and breads, sweet cakes & pastrys, hot & cold drinks and special ice cream. Definately recommended!

I've never understood why Finnish cafés serving breakfast open only at 9am even on a weekend.. Well, a little wait just gave us more appetite! The place had a mouthwatering scent of freshly baked goods as we arrived and it was obvious to go for the croissants! Shame there was only raspberry jam, would have been nice to choose orange...
