You'll never look at pancakes the same way again ;)

I'll admit I haven't been here for ages, but it was a mainstay of mine for many years (as my waistline soon attested) when I worked in the Old Town. ENORMOUS pancakes, both sweet and savoury, that cost next to nothing. There's nothing gourmet about them, or about the place, which for its prices and... read more

Kompressor is awesome to fill you up for little money. The pancakes are delicious and the huge variety of fillings and toppings makes you come back to try more! Definitely try the one with cherries and coconut cream - it is heaven!

Best pancakes ever! Very big and tasty. We tried pancakes with salmon, bleaches and mushrooms, and raspberries. All really good.

We were really just looking for inexpensive and filing and were satisfied in both cases. As one other reviewer mentioned, the decor in the entry reminded me of something from a movie about the Soviet mafia, but that was probably on purpose given the fact that the exterior looked kinda hinky, too. Order at the bar. Be polite but don't... More

I ordered a big pancake filled with chicken and feta. I got a big pancake filled with bacon and slightly salty cheese. Being British of course I didn't complain and ate it anyway. It was a big pancake with meat and cheese inside. Not sure what else I can say really. For €5 in Tallinn you probably can't get much... More

My husband and I ate lunch here. He had a sweet strawberry pancake and I had the cheese and garlic. Both of our pancakes were huge and the food was good but nothing exceptional. However, you can't beat the price when keeping to a tourist's budget.

This place was mentioned on a walking tour so we thought why not, something different. The entrance hall is very off-putting but gather it's part of its charm (!) Unfortunately it didn't live up to my expectations. After a 40 minute wait my salami and cheese pancake arrived (no apology for wait). Half cooked pancake, some crispy salami sprinkled on... More

A clear option for cheap eats, the place is quite ugly, considering Tallinn, the pancakes are average, although quite abundant.

I agree with those that say that it is best (or at least one of the best) pancake places in Tallinn. But because I have been there so many times I have started to notice significant drop of quality. My own favorite dish has been cheese and garlic pancake, but sadly it doesn't have strong taste of garlic anymore (reason... More
