We had four kinds of pancakes and we enjoyed every single one. It's true that you wont come out hungry here. The best one was the mushroom and cheese. We also had the salmon, chocolate, and traditional estonian flavored dessert.

The Tallinn free walking tour guide recommended this place as good for tasty, cheap eating and she was right! The pancakes are absolutely huge and I can definitely recommend the mushroom and blue cheese one. Unless you have an enormous appetite would advise sharing! The interior is very basic and nothing to shout about and the waitresses aren't overly friendly... More

Kompressor is the not finest place by its design and external outlook but it's very popular and locals visit the place for years. Not much tourists there due to not very attractive facade of Kompressor pancake bar. Prices are very cheap for the old town and you will get a huge pancake for a 3-5 EUR. Enjoy!

We eat there twice both salty and sweet pancakes were excellent, they are big and the price starts with 4€ - 5,5€. I would recommend the mushroom one!

The pancakes here are delicious, I can't rate them highly enough. The front of house staff are an unfortunate letdown to an otherwise must-eat place - we almost left at first because the person behind the till was so rude. At one point I was mocked for the way I spoke and the general vibe was that serving customers was... More

The pancakes here are HUGE - and only about €5! We got the salami one and the chicken one - both great. We would definitely recommend - but the dishes are definitely meals and not an afternoon snack!

As I heard is the main place to eat in Tallinn. So I wanted to try! I really liked because of big portions and low prices, but I was disappointed about staff, cause no one is in a hurry. But still, worth it!

We went in here late on shrove Tuesday, and were pleasantly surprised by very large, very varied pancakes from 4.60 to 5 euros each. The food was excellent, and brought out quickly. I couldn't have asked for better value. It was a lvoely little cafe bar, with a particularly modern student-feel to it.

The pancakes here were good but nothing to write home about. There was a wide selection of fillings both sweet and savoury at about €5 a pancake. Some of the options were better than others however and the service and facilities were quite basic. If you are in the area looking for quick and cheap food go here but I... More

The pancakes are delicious, exactly as described by my friends - the best pancakes in Tallinn :) Just spare some time as the place is continuously packed and then the waiting time for your pancakes can stretch to 30-40min. Highly recommended.

Thank wrc666
