Definitely the best MUNKKI (a kind of a donut) in Tampere. This cafe can get very crowded in the summer weekends. The area of Pyynikinharju is a nice area to go for a walk and enjoy the views to the lakes. And afterwards you júst have to stop in this cafe. If you like, you can climb the stairs up... More

This cafeteria is situated downstairs of Pyynikin Näkötorni (Pyynikki Observation Tower) and it serves probably the best sugar donuts of the town. It is very popular, so prepare yourself for little waiting, especially in the afternoons, but don't give up, they really are worth waiting, those donuts!

Usually very crowded (even close to closing time) but the atmosphere is great as the staff is friendly and the place itself is very cozy. Coffee is reasonably priced

I use to jog sometimes nearby of this place on the weekends and many times have planned to stop there, have a cup of coffee, but Saturdays and Sundays seems always be the busiest days there. I have lived near this place over 2 years now, but never managed to get my coffee without a very long queue which reaches... More

It is a small café located dowstairs the observation tower. Is nice to enjoy a coffee there after a walk. The place is well-known for its doughnuts but honestly, for me they are nothing special. Lots of sugar and good taste, but nothing remarkable, in my opinion.

Amazing view and there famous munkki so good. The place is popular by locals and turists, specially a warm sunny summer day. But worth waiting, and the have chairs outside too. The famouse munkki is so good, you could it at least 2 or more, and the view up from the tower is amazing.
