In Tallinn, a few hotels offer a hearty, filling and affordable brunch. The Tallink City hotel’s City Grill House brunch is full of the tastiest delicacies suitable for a late breakfast.

Children under the age of 5 with a Tallink card can enjoy a late breakfast free of charge.

At the Senso restaurant in the Radisson Blu Olympia hotel, the Sunday buffet is a cleverly constructed and eye-catching ensemble. The appetizer table offers fresh and tasty cold fish dishes and various salads. Pickled forest mushrooms tickle your tastebuds. The main dishes are traditional warm dishes, such as roast beef, chicken and apricot rolls, and pike perch. The atmosphere of the stylish restaurant is unhurried and calm. The price of the buffet is 25 euros per adult, including a glass of sparkling wine, and 12.51 for 6–11 year olds. Children under the age of 5 can eat for free.
