Original really old cafe. The interior is fine and brings to mind the history of old Tallinn. Otherwise, coffee and coffee breads are the same thing I get nowadays from almost every cafe and shops.

After a long walk down from Toompea Hill this is a fantastic place to stop by for a piece of cake and a very good cappuccino.It has a bit of history too...something like a businessman came from Moscow that he loved Tallinn so much...he decided...to stay and opened this coffee house,true or not...I loved this place.More

This place has a lovely interior which brings to mind the grand cafes of Vienna. The counter service is less appealing though, even if the food is reasonable

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.More

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.More

This traditional Coffee House and Restaurant is reminiscent of Vienna, Budapest and Venice for its high quality and wide choice of patisseries plus coffee and excellent service. It is also a Mecca for those who like Marzipan and a "must visit" on any trip to...TallinnMore

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.More
