Kalamaja’s Favourite Café
25. February 2015
The appropriately named Sesoon café uses seasonal ingredients.
Sesoon opened a few years ago in a large yellow house on Niine Street, which also houses a yoga studio, clay studio and a puppet film studio.
This Kalamaja café has been well received by visitors. Sesoon is among Tallinn’s Top 50 restaurants and a favourite place for lunch for people in the Tallinn area, but also busy in the evenings. Often one can spot Estonian actors and musicians here.
Sesoon’s success lies in the fact that it is reasonably priced and the food is delicious. Compared to many other lunch places, the food at Sesoon has a pinch more flavour and imagination.
In January, lunch included pureed beetroot soup, vegetable puree with liver sauce and cucumber salad, as well as baked apple with vanilla sauce. Seasonal ingredients are used in an interesting way. In the fall, the menu included mushroom and vegetable lasagne and a sea buckthorn lassi. The daily special costs €3.50, soup is €1,80, and dessert €1,20. The three-course lunch is €6. Daily offerings can be found on the Sesoon Facebook page. Lunch specials often sell out, so it’s best to arrive early.
