Places to fall in love with

Coolest place in town. Cafés, bars, restaurants, design shopping, general hipster heaven. Especially recommended: Fika for coffee and small pastries, Trühvel for dining.

A wonderful market full of great street food, little shops and a couple of nice outside areas to dine and soak in the summer sun (or winter snow).

Culture

Compulsory for every art lover. Great overview of Estonian art and other exhibitions in a nice park and worth a visit for the architecture alone.
Wonderful photography museum. Not too time consuming and worth for the views from the rooftop café/bar/restaurant alone.

Probably the most world class museum in Tallinn, located in a totally unique building. Worth it for the whole family, even if you're among the people who cross out museums first when picking places to go to.

Keep in mind this now closed concert hall is far from beautiful or upbeat, but it is one of the best examples of the huge and robust Soviet architecture from times past. Also, from the roof you can get good views of the city as well as the sea.

The smaller brother of Kalamaja, it has less to see and do, but is otherwise just as nice and well worth a walk. Highlights include amazing pizzas at Kaja Pizza and a homely café by the name of Ristikheina.

Foodie heaven

You'll smell the sweet spices from a mile away. The best bakery in town serving great coffee and absolutely wondamazilicious cinnamon and cardamom rolls.

I can't believe it's not Italy! No, really, these are without a doubt the best pizzas in Tallinn (and probably much further), and it's not even close.

If you're looking for great coffee to go, this is among the three best spots with Röst and Fika. You also have to try their coconut rolls.

There are quite a few very nice winebars around Kalamaja (including Time to Wine with a wine machine and the buzzy Shvips, each worth a try), but this is my favourite with its wonderful selection of wines at very reasonable prices.

Tallinn is not really at its best with options for breakfast, but this is one of the nicest. It provides healthy options and good cakes, and there's also a small shop to get some great delicacies from Estonia and further.

This is the must-go restaurant if you're looking to get a taste of the modern Estonian cuisine (another option is MEKK), and one of the best in town overall. Wonderful dishes and wine list, exceptionally nice outdoor seating.
