Marked by a simple golden pretzel hanging outside an otherwise rather nondescript building, it would be easy to walk past this little bakery, but that would be a mistake. Indeed, we loved it so much that we came back on every day of our visit to Tallinn. Opposite the Steampunk Theatre window on Nunne St., Saksalikud Küpsetised supplied us with light lunches, mugs of coffee, and impossible quantities of cake. The staff didn't speak English, but it was easy enough to point at what we wanted from the glass display cabinets. I particularly liked the savoury pastries (with cabbage or carrot filling), and the strawberry crumble cookies. The typical Estonian layer cakes, such as the honey cake meekook, were delicious but rather too rich for my tastes. Definitely worth a detour (and you'll want to see the Steampunk show, anyway, won't you?).
