Maiasmokk café

Maiasmokk is the oldest café anywhere in Tallinn and indeed Estonia - it has been in the same location since 1864. The café is unique due to its interior, which has remained unchanged for almost a century.

In this cosy café you can enjoy its fresh pastries, pies and cakes, as well as delicious handmade candies.

There is a marzipan museum in the cafe building which provides a fascinating overview of the history of the treat - which was originally made by pharmacists as a type of medicine before gaining popularity as a sweet. There is always an artist in the museum decorating marzipan figures, and they will often take visitors' requests!

    Charming old coffee shop

    Pleasant decor, nice pastries and cakes, good coffee and friendly service. One of the best places to visit for a cup of coffee in Tallinn.

    Coffee, cake and chocolate !

    Take coffee here, with either a piece of cake or a chocolate (made on the premises) or both in fact! Also a very interesting wheel of cups and saucers in a downstairs salon.
