Food Scene
Great breakfast, they use organic eggs. My favourite from the savory menu is their warm goat-cheese salad, but they are most famous for their cakes. The fluffy raspberry-merengue roll is legendary! Table reservation for dinner is recommended. Great view on central Tallinn. In summertime they are also open on the rooftop of Solaris Centre. www.kohvikkomeet.ee

Located in the centre of Old Town in a medieval house of a rich merchant, the restaurant offers a unique experience of authentic medieval festivities. Food and drinks are prepared using only the ingredients that were actually available in the medieval times, and even the plates and glassware have been manufactured specially for the restaurant in the style of the Middle Ages. My favourite dessert is the apple and honey bake under crispy coat with almond milk...yummm.. www.oldehansa.ee

A medieval tavern. It's a step back in time - there's no electricity, it's all candlelit and gentle music is played in the background. The menu is small but very tasty, soup to start and then pies and sausages for the main, cooked to perfection. Truly budget-friendly - the most expensive item in the food menu costs 10 euros, pies are 1.50 and bowl of soup 3 euros. And it's all in the very heart of Tallinn, on the first floor of the Town Hall! PS: The mulled wine is a must too! Open Mo-Sun 9-24

There are a number of museums in the park, including KUMU (the Estonian Art Museum), Kadriorg Art Museum and the Mikkeli Museum, as well as monuments to several cultural figures. Several cozy cafes next to the park.
