Stopped quickly for a cup of coffee and something sweet with the kids. Nice interior but hard to find a table. A bit expensive compared to the quality and taste.

We randomly chose this place for a late breakfast, had coffee, chai tea and some feta cheese pie. This is a place for anyone, as we walked in there were businessmen, a family with a baby and elderly men in the relaxed atmosphere. The paintings on the walls are for sale. Good coffee and croissants!

This place is somehow special and not just a typical coffee store you see around. This has its own of a kinda atmosphere and specially for artistic people will appreciate it. It is made with an idea that you just sit there in quiet and enjoy your coffee and a book.. Pretty cool!

By far the best coffee shop in Tampere. Good coffee from Mokkamestarit. Great gelato. Quiche, mud cake, apple cake, cookies and of course the cinnamon buns are baked on premises. Lots of teas as well. Just an overall great establishment with all aspects considered. Has made its mark in Ojakatu and Tampere

Good coffee, just baked cinnamon rolls, todays magazines and even the little library. You can also have some salt minibreads and pies, and delicious blueberry, strawberry, rasberry pies The service is nice and delicate. They have also many regular customers, whose preferences they remember.

Kahvila Runo is a cosy place with excellent atmosphere and tasty sugary and salty delights made in the same cafe. Good coffee and huge selection of teas. No wifi, but who needs it if you have someone local to talk to, or a fresh newspaper, or a poem book!

"Runo" or "Poem" is literally a book café, where the tables and windowsills are lined with books, mostly of poetry. When I was living in Tampere, it was one of my favourite places for reading. They have good selection of coffees and teas, locally produced chocolate (even for vegans!), pastries and ice creams (including Italian gelato). Highly recommended. Like my... More

Such a lovely place. Nicely decorated. Gluten free mudcake was to die for! Their selection offers salty pies and breads, sweet cakes & pastrys, hot & cold drinks and special ice cream. Definately recommended!
