Tallinn Gastro Guide

Tallinn Gastro Guide

If you are looking for a complete change of scenery less than 3 hours away from London, Tallinn is the place to go. With a unique mixture of new ebullient design and food scenes and an old, complex history, you will no doubt fall in love with this city in no time.

In this post, however, I will concentrate on gastro scene in Tallinn. In recent years there has been a booming rise of trendy off-beat food places that serve seriously delicious nordic food. Therefore, I believe it is my absolute duty to tell you about some of the amazing places we came across in Tallinn.

The Chocolaterie Pierre

Start your day in a cozy courtyard enjoying your morning coffee in one hand and delicious orange and chilli chocolate cake in another. Nicely tucked away from crowds, with 40s music playing in the background, Chocolate Pierre has this Parisian bohemian feel to it. Honestly, I could not think of a better breakfast/brunch spot than that.

Must Puudel

Must be the biggest concentration of hipsters per square meter in Tallinn. The one place that everyone likes – the locals, the tourists and everyone in between. I loved the design- extremely bright colours balanced with retro furniture. Go there for a chilled drink or grab a meal, there are some great vegetarian options on the menu. Every Saturday Must Puudel is hosting Vinyl Nights, you might be surprised how many beautiful people are coming to dance to some of the greatest hits of 60’s and 70’s.

F-Hoone

Is located in a former fishermen’s district, today one of the trendiest areas in Tallinn. F-Hoone is built in the abandoned factory with super hight ceilings and magnificently big French windows. It is always packed with locals and tourists, so booking ahead might be very useful. The food is simply one of the best we had in Tallinn. The grilled goat cheese and bruschetta starters tasted excellent and set high expectations on the main courses. The mutton dumplings and rye bread burger were finger licking delicious. Whether you are planning to visit creative hub or not, F-Hoone is definitely worth visiting. It is a short walk from the train station in the Old Town or around €3-€4 taxi ride from city centre.

Klaus

Very stylish place near the harbor and close to old Tallinn. When Old town is overwhelming with tourist, it is the right time to escape to Klaus for lunch. It is a really peaceful place with a beautiful terrace outside especially welcoming when a smooth breeze is blowing. The menu has a good spin on classic local dishes with reasonable prices. We loved white fish tempura with chervil and ponzu lime mayo.

Komeet

Renowned for its cakes and one of the best views in Tallinn, this cafe is located on the top floor of the Solaris shopping centre. It has a great breakfast selection as well as wonderful looking salad menu. Komeet is perfect coffee break scenario complete with highly instagrammable marble table tops. The coffee is delicious too!
