On the road: Klaus Cafe

We recently had a great meeting at the Klaus Cafe in Tallinn. Outside of the Old Town, a trip there will take you to another view of the city.

The cafe itself is almost too adorable, nestled as it is in the same building as the Estonian Design House and shop, which exerted a siren like call on me.

Everything in the cafe was presented with care, from water:

To a cheese plate:

To tea and coffee (here served in Iittala Taika dishes). I like the choice of pure black with it.

The front of their menu, the prices seem fantastic from the perspective of Helsinki.

On offer: duck, a very good salmon soup that can be ordered clear or creamy, good tea served well, and two of the most amazing smoothies I have had in recent memory. I am looking forward to going back. Klaus is also a walkable distance from both Old Town Tallinn and the ships coming in from Helsinki, Stockholm and St. Petersburg. It also gets one out into an interesting part of town.

A side of the city I thought was interesting and visually rewarding. I would love to hear about other hidden treasures of Tallinn!
