Good chocolate

The cafe displays are really cute. Nice atmosphere. The creampuff I ordered was a little bit sour. However, the chocolate was really good, love it.

Tried both downstairs and upstairs and upstairs is more relaxing as waitress service and comfy seats.

We're Tourism Management students and we were on a school trip in Tallinn and decided to do our review task about Kalev Marzipan Factory Museum. The location was a little misleading because on the outside it was advertised as a café so we didn't realize that there was the museum inside of the café. Design and decorations were beautiful, the... More

Mazzipans are being produced here like precious artworks. They are so nice and fine that I am not sur whether I would like to eat them. Even if you don't like the candy, you should still come to take a look.

The Marzipan Museum is actually a beautiful store that is holding the secret of the Kalev family, for many years. They have invented the Marzipan, and excelled in decorating it. In the store, you can see photos of the family, shelves with all kinds and shapes of marzipan, and a lady, that brings to life, pieces of marzipan, with her... More

Although not really a museum as opposed to a 5 minute look round a single room, we stopped to do the marzipan modelling which was great. Costing €4 per person, we each got a ball of marzipan, food colourings, pre made models to inspire us, and a plastic display box to take our creations away with. Good fun for all... More

Yes there is an explanation all things marzipan but primarily it's a tea and coffee shop with lovely cakes and pastries and of course sweet delights. Restaurant menu also available outside. Thanks for the vote if you found this helpful.

We had a short stop on our tour through Tallinn and enjoyed a coffee and some delight pastry and patisseries. I recommend especially the one with marcipan.
