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 your nose is dripping from the chilly winter air. 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 Olde Hansa spiced nuts stand. It’s a little hard to spot, just look out for a old 1920s looking sign on the street that points to a courtyard.
The cafe offers wide range of teas and coffees but you’re not there for that, you want to have one of their famous hot chocolates. 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 hand made 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 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.
