Café Nikolai Lehtla

Nikolai tänav 7, Pärnu linn, Pärnu


Café Nikolai Lehtla is a cosy place to relax.
We offer hearty food and drinks which are affordable for czars, presidents, prime ministers, and, of course, regular citizens. During the day, families with children are also welcome, as we have a children's menu and a playground.
Legend has it that the café is located on the site of a gazebo belonging to Czar Nicholas II where he would sip his beer on hot summer days. Nicholas II is reported to have been a pleasant man, and we, too, hold him in high esteem – not as a ruler, but as someone who appreciated good food and drink.
But why go on about it here – come and see for yourself!
