This place is apparently known for its donughs and they surely were tasty and reasonably priced. They had also good tea and other warm drinks.

The freshest, warm, fresh donuts are found here. After visiting the tower for the splendid view of Tampere, it is a must to enjoy your beverage of choice and at least one of these wonderful donuts. Though I am not a coffee drinker, I am told (by this nation of coffee drinkers) the coffee is also not to be missed.

The viewpoint tower of Pyynikki is a great place to stop while enjoying the forest and the lake. Take the stairs (or the elevator) and admire the great view to Tampere city and the nature around it. The most important thing: don't leave without tasting the donuts-like Finnish "munkki" - a pastry made with fat and sugar. ;) In this... More

The queue is always there but miracously you never have to wait for too long. The original munkkis are so freshly baked that you dont get anywhere else. A must visit place in Tampere, year after year.

Situated at the bottom of the observation tower on top of Pyyniki ridge, this café has a great location. There are tables both indoors and on the terrace. The building dates from 1929 and seems to have kept a lot of its original features. The coffee is very good, and they have a wide range of soft drinks as well.... More

The cafe is well known for its sugary, greasy doughnuts. The doughnuts are so good that many customers take them away rather than enjoy them with hot chocolate in this beautiful view tower. On Sunday it was a bit crowded but that was just the atmosphere.

A few years ago we made a little summer trip in Southern Finland. We tried to find where the best "munkki" (donut) in Finland is served. This cafe won. After that experience we have dropped by every year. Very beautiful scenery around the cafe.

Place is great with good views and the best doughnuts in Tampere. Only problem is that it is so popular, that in summer time you always have to queue for a while :-)

In addition to regular sugar donuts (munkki) they do gluten free donuts which are to die for!! A bit expensive but well worth the money! The delicious sugar donuts (munkki) at Observation Tower Café alone is good enough reason to visit but the view over Tampere is amazing too.
