Bonaparte is a well respected French cuisine restaurant in Tallinn and it comes with a small French style cafe. The cafe is open from early morning and serves freshly baked pastries and cake. Your best choice will be their pistachio pastry with chocolate chips.
Around lunchtime you can choose from fresh salads, soups and few heartier meals too.
For me Bonaparte Cafe is the perfect place for my breakfast and coffee, nice for a working day lunch and in the evening I’ll take a book with me and linger around drinking tea and eating cake. So I guess I could spend a whole day there.
In the recent years Bonaparte has spread over the town and by today they have two lunch-time delis in the center and they also run a cafe at KUMU museum. All are good choices for tasty food and nice atmosphere.
