One of the oldest cafes in town with a cozy atmosphere inside, a candle with a soft light on each table and tasty desserts on a showcase. Prices are slightly higher than average, but a regular coffee like espresso and americano are not that good. Hot chocolate and tea are much better by the way. Pastry is also tasty. Reccomend to visit.

Lovely formal traditional coffee house selling traditional marzipan cakes, sweets and figures at the front of the building (with a lady painting the marzipan figurines). Through into the street level cafe is a beautiful traditional old style European cafe with wood panelling and glass panel ceiling. Excellent selection of pastries, savouries and cakes perfect for a mid morning or afternoon snackette with good quality coffees to take a break from a day touring round the old city. Worth a visit.

I can't claim to have been to every cafe in Tallinn, but this was certainly the most traditional and charming that we saw. We had a wonderful mid-morning stop to drink good filter coffee and eat some tasty pastries. The place feels like it hasn't changed much in over a century, in a good way. And afterwards check out the marzipan museum attached to the cafe.

From the moment you step into this café, you are welcomed by a classy yet inviting interior that caters to everyone. The personnel truly set a high bar, showing immense kindness, attentiveness, and ensuring guests feel valued (especially Mona)! For those with a penchant for flavors that resonate with Estonian traditions, the poppy seed rolls and curd pastries are an absolute must-try. However, I must warn you – making a choice here is a challenge. The temptation of their pistachio and salted caramel cheesecakes can be overwhelming! One thing that stands out is the freshness and exceptional quality of every item on their menu. A pleasant surprise was the pricing – contrary to expectations of such a high-end ambiance, the prices are very much in line with the area’s average. This café dispels the notion that premium experiences always come with a hefty price tag.

Pretty great place to start the day if you like strong coffee and a pastry to fuel your cultural mornings. Unsurprisingly - as it's billed as the oldest cafe in Tallinn - the only customers were foreigners but my local speciality choice, complete with marzipan in the middle, was still warm from the oven and delicious. There was an upstairs (closed), so they're clearly prepared for the busy season, and a lady hand painting marzipan figures in the room next door (accessible through cafe). Loos were OK - not gender specific.

This is the oldest operating cafe, not only in Tallinn, but Estonia. Its interior has been unchanged for almost a century, and as such, it was like stepping back in time. . . You order from the counter, and then sit and enjoy at a little table. The items in the case are a feast for the eyes! And your tastebuds! My husband sipped a Vana Liqueur, while I enjoyed a hot chocolate with a piece of "roulette" with berries and whipped cream. Yum!!!

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.

I really enjoyed this cafe, it's so beautiful on the inside and it's nice to think of just how long it has been serving customers! It's the oldest cafe in Tallinn! The desserts were all very fair in price, which is rare for a touristy place. We enjoyed our coffee and pastries very much!

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.

The cafe atmosphere and decor is very nice. You can feel it’s with history. Coffee and pastries taste good and at a very reasonable price. However, it’s a self service cafe. You need to find seats by yourself, place your order at cashier, return the food tray, etc. after use. The time I visited only one staff there. She had to take order at cashier and prepare food & coffee, etc.

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, etc

The café is very pretty, and the window display is gorgeous. However, it did not live up to expectations. The queue was long, and the cakes were nice enough, but we had far better in Tallinn. The coffee was nothing spectacular, and the savoury pastries were also nice enough, but again, not special. The confusing thing was some people were having some kind of meal on plates with salad, but we could not see that advertised anywhere - it seemed that if you knew about it, you could have it! The toilets were not particularly clean either, which was a shame.

We stopped in this building for scope out the marzipan (actually to go to the bathroom in the basement). The candy shop is small but has many brightly colored confections. It is also only one of three marzipan studios left in the country. The wares are too beautiful to eat. The candy counter is adjacent to a marvelous coffee shop in the olde world style. The tables are beautiful and the wood is dark. Soak up the ambiance.

My visit to Café Maiasmokk in Tallinn was a step back in time to a charming and historic café. The café’s interior, with its Art Nouveau decor and vintage ambiance, created a delightful atmosphere. The menu featured a selection of traditional Estonian pastries, including the famous marzipan creations. Sipping coffee while enjoying marzipan treats was a delightful experience. The café’s commitment to preserving its heritage and craftsmanship was evident in each bite. Whether you’re starting your day with coffee and pastries or simply indulging in a sweet treat, Café Maiasmokk is a must-visit for a taste of Tallinn’s cultural heritage and a journey into its artistic past.

I stopped in to check out their baked goods counter. I purchased a vastlakukkel, a sort of cream puff and I think the other item was called porgandipirukas, it was a savory hand pie made with carrots for the filling. Both were very good.
