When in Tallinn, it is likely that you will have Kotzebue Bakery’s bread with your meal at a restaurant. But why not go directly to the source? Kotzebue Bakery feels like a speakeasy bakery – it is not hard to find, but you have to know where to look. About a 20-minute walk from Old Town, it takes you to an apartment building where deliciousness resides. Sourdough bread and pastries, rye bread, focaccia – I cannot promise everything is available all the time, but I am sure whatever is available is fresh and delicious. Nothing generic here — the Kotzebue Bakery team is small and knows their stuff.
Look for Kotzebue Bakery’s special offers on FB; when a holiday approaches, you are in for a special treat: buns with whipped cream for Shrove Tuesday (vastlapäev) or Christmas specials with charcuterie items and gourmet condiments. And their brownies…never have I ever shared those with anyone, all for me.
The Bakery shares their space with restaurant Tsunft, using primarily local produce and offering breakfasts as well as dinners.
