So you have been walking around the beautiful Old Town, you’re in love with the small cobbled streets and are uplifted by the charm of medieval architecture. It’s getting a bit dark and you’re in need of cozy place with some candlelight. In these moments the only thing you need is… yes, it’s obvious – hot chocolate.
Pierre Chocolaterie is a small old French style chocolaterie situated in a small courtyard just off the corner from the Olde Hansa spiced nuts stand. It’s a little hard to spot, just look out for an old 1920s looking sign on the street that points to a courtyard.
The cafe offers a wide range of teas but you’re not there for that, you want to have their famous hot chocolate. My favorite is hot chilli with rum raisins but just ask for advice, they will gladly compose a drink to your liking (if you don’t like rum with your raisins for example).
Another reason for going to Pierre (like you would need another reason besides hot chocolate) is their truffles. They offer a variety of handmade chocolate truffles and I’m absolutely sure that you can’t get better truffles even in Paris and London. Don’t hesitate to ask the girl behind the counter to explain the flavors of the truffles, they all look delicious.
If you share my love for chocolate, then Pierre Chocolaterie is the place to go in Tallinn. It is my favorite place to spend hours with a book… and chocolate.
