Estonia, Tallinn Guide (B): The Best Historic Cafes You Can't Miss in Tallinn, Estonia

When in Tallinn, stay warm at some of the most buzz-worthy cafes you can't miss while in Tallinn.

Hidden in an ancient courtyard on Vene Street is the Choco café. The actual cafe opened in 2003 with roots dating back to 1937. The interior transports you back into ancient Europe. The cozy café features a plethora of golden-rimmed paintings, Victorian candles, red velvet chairs and an old sign in book to explore where travelers come from. Enjoy a latte, or a Chai tea, accompanied with a slice of European-style cake or small square of chocolate. During the warmer months, enjoy the makeshift “couch” along the exterior’s stairs.
