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.

If you ever visit a Tampere this is a place to go (walk). Besides seeing beautiful (and world highest?) Pyynikki -esker, there is this small cafe in sightseeing tower. These Finnish sugar donuts (munkki) they bake there several time a day are a must to eat when in Tampere. If you don't like Finnish (roast) coffee, take one of the... More

This place serves, hands down, the best munkkis you will ever eat! They are warm; they are sugary; they are fluffy; they are delicious; they are simply amazing. For those of you who don't know what munkki is-- they are Finland's version of sugar donuts. The ingredient that makes them munkkis, and not donuts, is cardamom.

Also the special coffee blend they use is very good! For an admission of 2 euros you can go to the observation tower where... More

Many people in Tampere say doughnut of Pyynikin Nakotornin Kahvila is the most delicious of Tampere. Some of them even say that it is the Finland's number one. The cafe is surrounded by forest and there is a walking trail leading to the cafe. So, we frequently visit this cafe while enjoining walking exercise. The walking trail is nice location... More
