DESTINATIONS estonia tallinn Cafes Maiasmokk


Tallinn’s oldest café still retains its amazing, pre-war interior and offers a variety of tempting cakes and pastries, as well as fresh coffee and other treats. This old charmer lives up to its name (Estonian for 'sweet tooth') by serving up a variety of baked goods – all made right on the spot – as well as hot drinks and other snacks. Children will appreciate the adjacent Kalev Marzipan Room with its display of artistic marzipan creations.


A romantic hideaway, a trendy hangout or just somewhere to get a decent cappuccino — whatever kind of cafe you're looking for, you can find it in Tallinn. But hungry travellers should also know that the line between “restaurant” and “cafe” in Estonia is somewhat blurred, with many cafes offering extensive food menus. Meals typically range from simple, meat-and-potatoes dishes to elaborate salads and pastas. If it's just dessert you're after, try one of the cafes that specializes in handmade chocolates.
