Pööripäev, restaurant at the Estonian National Museum

Muuseumi tee-2, Tartu linn, Tartu


People used to say that we will not feel hunger as long as we have bread and kvass.

The museum restaurant offers everything from the modern Estonian cuisine and, in addition to the tastes of our time, focuses on Estonian raw materials, beauty, and high-quality service.

In addition to the à la carte menu, the restaurant offers buffet lunches between 12 p.m. and 4 p.m. 

In front of the entrance, an outdoor cafe is open in the summer from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., offering snacks, cake and coffee, as well as daily specials. The terrace is located under a roof and radiators and blankets will keep you warm.
