“Cozy place to have a hot drink and cake ...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Warm, cozy, nice place to get warm in winter and to try delicious cakes.

Portions are really good - a big cup of tea and huge piece of cake I ordered was just perfect in cold winter to melt away.

“Ovner is just terrible. Saw the man speaking with his workers. And it was the most terrible thing i have seen for long time.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2013

I went there to enjoy lovely caffe in old down, it looks really nice and romantic After some time the owner sat down with two workers.... And he was speaking at them with no respect. It was the most terrible thing i have seen for a long time. The way he moved his hand, knocking on the table, shouting, very arrogant twords them. Kept sayin we need to save money for me, work is work. He didnt care over his clients hearing all that. So i told him, can he lower his voice and give some respect for the workers and clients. I will never go there again, just the the thought over him and his candys and cakes. Poor.

“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

On the third of our three days it was a challenge to find somewhere so engaging as the old town of Tallinn had delighted us at every turn. Step into Josephine's and you are lost in a bygone age where quality was the purview of the wealthy. Opulent surroundings, delicious cakes and gateaux and charming service make Josephine's a must visit on our return.

“Nice, fine cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

The cake and the in here is good and at reasonable prices. For lunch there is different kinds of ceasar salads and quiche.
The staff was friendly and the customers are cafe types, mainly women. Nice and qiet atmosphere. The café lays centrally in the old town next to the old monastery and probably in some of their old buildings.
