Ordered smoked salmon and smoked it was. There was no other taste to it than heavy smoke which made the fish sadly barely edible and made us leave it half eaten. 17€ per person basically wasted. Sadly won't be going there again.

The cafe is in a lovely old building, had a breakfast with my daughters there. The paninis and cakes were great (well, chocolate cake was a disappointment).The service wasn't the friendliest I've got.

Josephine cafe in Tallinn offers no food! just great coffee and excellent desserts etc. Prices for hand-made truffles are pretty high but it's worthy to try them, they are delicious!. Please ignore stupid comments placed - they probably refer to another cafe or restaurant,..

We stumbled upon this place as we were looking for a shelter from the rain.There's nothing better than a big cup of hot coffee to warm up, and their cappuccino, served in a giant mug, certainly did the job. Their cakes are good as well.

We stopped here for a rest during our sight seeing of old town and the coffee and cake were delicious. The coffee is well made, hot and it nice big cups. We sat outside which provided great people watching opportunities! The only issue was the waitress only came out to take our drink order so we had to go and... More

Stopped by Cafe Josephine for a quick breakfast coffee and a pastry and it was very nice; the service seemed to be pretty quick as well and it's reasonable priced to be in the old town. Coffee is also pretty good, it was a proper cappuccino! The cafe overlooks a courtyard as well which is pretty nice.

We stopped in for some tea and truffles...and even came back the next day for more. We ended up buying two boxes of chocolates and truffles to take back home to the US. Amazing amazing amazing! Not to be missed if you love chocolate and some sweets. We did not try the cakes but they looked absolutely delicious. Great little... More

We entered by chance without checking the comments. We had sandwiches they were big and enough as lunch. And they were cheap. Most of the food and drinks were 5€ each which is a good deal. There is a weird odor at the restaurant and it is most likely coming from the toilet sadly. The staff is nice but not... More

We stopped here for cake and milkshakes. We wanted to sit outside but there was a horrid sewage smell, moved inside and the decor is funky, it's really comfortable and all of the cakes and other items we purchased were lovely. Girl who served us was stunning and really helpful
