Bliss offers a daily vegetarian and vegan-friendly buffet that has over 100 dishes. Over 50 are gluten-free and about 50 lactose-free dishes. Here, you can find everything imaginable that the plant-craving stomach juices desire, with international favorites such as hearty chana masala, pumpkin soup and guacamole.
Each person receives a bliss card and you can make unlimited trips to the buffet since they weigh the plate by the 100 grams. After meandering through the aisles, my soul yearned to dip my finger in every ounce of homemade dessert and ice cream. From salad to dessert to hot drinks and everything in between, you won't leave hungry. I walked here from Old Town, and it takes time and not much of a scenic route but achievable.
Known as the first vegan restuarnta in Tallinn, this crown jewel is a popular place amongst locals and plant-base tourists. Located in Old Town on Rataskaevu Street, the restaurant seats 30 and is often full. Reservations are recommended. A regular menu and special of the day is available. I tried the raw beet ravioli stuffed with cashew cheese and pumpkin soup. Both healthy and hearty for a cold winter's day in Tallinn. If you're not looking for a meal, they also serve various coffees, teas and desserts.
Casual and cozy, VI offers a variety of wraps, soups, burgers, smoothies and salads. Water in Europe is not cheap and rarely free, but here guests are accompanied with fruit-infused water to wash down every meal. Above we have mushroom cashew soup, avocado quinoa salad and an Indian-inspired bean and rice mixture. It's the perfect place to stay warm on a cold winter's day whether for a cup of tea or just a place to stay warm on a chilly afternoon.
Puree is a standard health food bar, featuring juices, snacks, smoothies and sandwiches. Light lunch options are available. If looking for something quick and easy in Europe that doesn't take time, Puree's got your back.
For a quick bite of vegan comfort food in a cozy little atmosphere, be sure to visit Veg Machine. Known for its plant-based junk food, like burgers and fries, it's the perfect establishment for veggie fast food or a quick bite nearby the train station at an affordable price. Prices for a burger range between four to six Euros. The food stall is inside Balti Jaama Turg and offers a few chairs at the counter.
Located near the main bus depot, Green Bakery is a dairy-free cafe and bakery located in the Sikupilli neighborhood. Green Bakery also offers a buffet featuring a variety of salads, soups, main courses and desserts. If you don't fancy buffets, muffins, coffee and pastries are available and an ideal place to rummage through one of the many books for sale. Baked goods and pantry items are also sold here.
Tallinn features plenty of other vegan options, and I suggest checking out the Happy Cow website to confirm restaurant hours of operation. We live in a changing world, and be sure to check that these small business establishments are still operating and in the same location. These are four places I recommend, though you can't go wrong with vegan food anywhere in the world.
