Tops is a small cafe situated in the trendiest neighbourhood today, Kalamaja. It is on the first floor of a wooden house and serves cold drinks, coffee and tea, salads, panini sandwiches and a very Estonian cake that every child who grew up in Estonia has had. I invite you to try a “küpsisekook”. It is actually a very simple dessert, made for the lazy but patient people. You just take few squared cookies put them on top of each other with some cream and wait a few hours for them to cool down in the fridge. It is tasty and brings back a lot of childhood memories. So if you go there, share the memory of Estonian children.
The place is a throwback to Soviet chic. Old furniture, books, art on the walls. There is also a smoking room for those of you who do not enjoy smoking outside and check out their page for upcoming events.
Every Thursday they have a Femme Fatale night, the female DJs play lovely music. They also invite interesting musicians for small, intimate performances. It is like having your own guest over that plays good music.
