I grew-up with W. European and Scandinavian food, and can't say I've had anything I would try again in Slavic countries. So, I was prepared for greasy, starchy and pickled dishes.
Wow, the food I had in Estonia & Latvia was the best of Northern Europe. Simple and elegant like Scandinavian, hearty with the good quality of Germany and Holland. Only the desserts were lacking.
Here is proof that cultures that have experienced the crush of being invaded can come out with identity and be proud. Now, if only the English had taken some food prep tips from it's empire, eating there would be as enjoyable as visiting it. That's my rant.

The variety of fresh local dishes to pick from the line is vast, there are small cups of salads, layered cakes of fish and vegetables, all kinds of grilled food looking delicious. You could eat here every day of the week and find new combinations. All servings are priced individually, around 2-4 euros which is a good way to avoid customers to over stuff their plates with food waste. The staff is clad in traditional Estonian costumes with small white bonnets, here only the positive sides of the communist era are preserved.

Visited with couple families. A large place with lots to choose from. Kind of like an Ikea style buffet, everything is separately priced. Gather what you want and pay at the check out. One thing that was a surprise is that EVERYTHING was priced separately, even the ketchup! Like in many places in Tallinn, service is pretty poor, here I think it was maybe because the staff did not speak english of finnish.

I think this is a pretty good place for a quick and inexpensive meal.
And it is always pretty tasty.

Always enough places, always all dishes/drinks are available. The quality is good, meat is hot, drinks are cold enough. Some interesting drinks, like water with lime and peppermint or cold sweet tea, also with peppermint. It is necessary to take some marinated onion! Very acceptable prices.

Tip for locals : your ID - card will always give some discount.
