The first place we stopped at in Tallinn was the wonderful Cafe Josephine, owned by the same people of the Pierre chocolates... and that's why their chocolates and cakes tasted to good. Café Josephine opened in 2008 as a café boutique with 1920s and 1930s chairs and tables. Delightful
Favorite Dish: We had a truly delicious Sacher cake and coffee with Vana Tallinn liqueur. Very yummy...
Coffeehouse culture is big in Estonia. This is one among many places that offer the yummiest cakes and chocolates together with good coffee in different varieties, similar to the Italian assortment.
Josephine is a small plushy cafe in Vene, not far from the Dominican monastery, Katharina guild of artisans and the catholic church.
Favorite Dish: Select from the buffet - their chocolate pralines are wonderful and one is actually enough to have with a cup of coffee. Or try one of the cakes, served with jam and cream and an ornament of chocolate sauce.
Note the pattern on the caffelatte, too...
A rather nice cafe and chocolaterie, with lots of pink plush and purple velvet, named after Josephine Baker (I don't know why for I can't imagine she ever went to Tallinn, but perhaps she did).
They make their own chocolates, and have a goodly selection of cakes (and salads/sandwiches, in a limited way).
The staff are friendly and pleasant, and cope well with English. The coffee is fine, and they have a variety of teas (as seems to be the case in all Tallinn's cafes).
It was a very welcome respite from the teeming rain, and I enjoyed being there: I felt comfortable, and that matters. My cake was excellent too (see photo).
The loo (unisex) has the most elaborate bronze washbasin....worth a visit just to see it!
