Cakes were okay, nothing spectacular. Service wasnt very friendly. Dirty toilets. Building has a nice atmosphere. I think this place is over-hyped and over-priced.

This was a beautiful cafe in the heart of Old Town. Espresso and pastries are very nice. The cafe itself is beautiful with some interesting artwork and historical pictures. Definitely worth a stop for coffee as you explore Tallinn.

Great, authentic shop. Gets very busy with 1 register / employee and the coffee is just fine but nothing out of the ordinary. Come here for the looks, not a smooth coffee experience

Cute, historic cafe with some patio seating as well as a crowded indoor area but the line gets long very quickly and I don't see any reason to pay these prices. Food was good but you can get equal from other cafes and more choices...if you're hungry for a bigger breakfast (I was). No fresh juice, etcMore

The window claims it is the oldest cafe in Tallinn. It certainly is a pleasant place to stop and rest for a while. The cakes are fabulous and reasonably priced. The Vans Tallin coffee will warm you up on the coldest day. (Think Irish coffee...made the the local liquor.) Very pleasant.More

This would deserve a 5 but each time we got there either they were closing or a very limited choice of cakes. The pistachio cake is good and more than decent coffee.

I can understand why this place is an institution! The cakes are to die for, the orange juice is amazing, and the coffees perfect!

Traditional and stylish cafe with decent tea ‘pig’ tea. Mellow background music and a relaxed feel with a rotating ferris whee holding tea cups in the window.

Sade Liis was the best server! I am so glad my Free tour guide told us about this place being the oldest in town. I really enjoyed the pastry and the ham sandwish! Teas were nice too!

Excellent pastry and coffee shop still showing its elegant lineage. I skipped my hotel breakfast each day in favor of coffee and pastries here. Locals, students and tourists give it a warm, lively vibe. Recommended.

A quaint cafe with a lot of history. My companion and I stopped for a quick coffee and to warm up from the cold afternoon. The staff moved quickly and even though the place was packed, we didn't wait long for our coffee and chocolates....They had soy and oat milk substitutes for regular milk. We actually wanted to order food too, but almost all of their pastries and snacks used eggs, so we weren't able to order. The staff was able to answer questions in English about ingredients, which helped, or else I would not have ordered chocolates. It is probably worth a stop if only to marvel at a cafe open for business in the Tallinn old town since 1864.More

Went inside the oldest cafe in Tallinn for a nosey really but my wife and I ended up sitting at a corner table enjoying a G & T just so we could soak up the atmosphere of locals and tourists enjoying their coffee and pastries....The beautiful ceiling and solid wood wall panelling really added to the history and ambience of this must-visit establishment.More
