Simple delicious donuts, a great selection of warm drinks and a cozy atmosphere. Be prepared to line up, it's a very small place and the entrance way is also very small, but the line goes fast and it's worth the wait!

The surrounding scenic area is enough to draw you here, but definitely worth it to top it off with their delicious doughnuts!

Excellent location in the middle of the beautiful Pyynikki park, on the hill with a view over two lakes and Tampere city and region, at least from the top of the tower. Try the coffee or tea with fresh warm "munkki" and you will not get disappointed.

This tower has a nice view over the area. It's a tradition to have a doughnut at the cafee in the tower and obviously the doughnuts are pretty good. Coffee only the typical German filter coffee though..

This little café on one of the hills in Tampere is not only cosy, but also serves the best munkki (Finnish doughnuts) I've ever tried. Especially in the autumn and winter it's nice to enjoy the munkki with a hot beverage (and it's not too expensive either!). Definitely recommended if you visit Tampere!

Perfect blend of sweet, delicious, nice smell and flufy curvey donut. The rich flavour came from cardamom. Altho I'm not used to cardamom in baking, but this donut made me say that I gotta agree with what the Finns do with their donut / pulla.

Visited this donut (munkki - as we Finnish say) cafe several times and had fresh home made donuts with fresh, good coffee every time. Only one minus is that the cafe is quite small but in good weather you can enjoy these goodies outside terrace. Also the tower is also worth visiting. From the top you can get a nice... More

A comfy cafe in an old observation tower. Great doughnuts, nice location in a natural park. Very crowded especially during the weekends - prepare for queues!
