My coffee was served already cold. Didnt taste like anything. There were no coffee spoons,no paper, nothing. Even milk cream was finished. There were only two workers for a big amount of customers, waiting at the tiny small entrance packed like sardines.

Stopped here for a cup of coffee and the famous Pyynikin munkki. Perfect match with a great overlooking view to Näsijärvi.

We just took a quick stroll in the Pyynikki recreational park area and decided to stop for a cup of tea. I have reserved the first doughnut of the year to be enjoyed at the end of a school semester with my sons. We have had this tradition since 1997 and never missed a year. Lucky man I am and... More

Café at the Pyynikki observation tower (Pyynikin näkötorni) serves the best doughnuts (munkki) in the city. During the summer months and weekends throughout the year it can be quite busy. It is open every day. The visit to the top of the observation tower is also rewarding.

Nice and peaceful outdoor area and the heart of it small tower which offers funny atmosphere and great doughnuts. Coffee did not smell very fresh so I chose hot chocolate, which usually works (and also this time). I would recommend this place after being outdoors, breathing fresh air and feeling tiny hunger and cold. Just take some time and enjoy... More

Gluten-free/milk-free donuts were excellent! The taste and the texture similar to the normal one. Really nice surprise.

Definitely the best MUNKKI (a kind of a donut) in Tampere. This cafe can get very crowded in the summer weekends. The area of Pyynikinharju is a nice area to go for a walk and enjoy the views to the lakes. And afterwards you júst have to stop in this cafe. If you like, you can climb the stairs up... More

This cafeteria is situated downstairs of Pyynikin Näkötorni (Pyynikki Observation Tower) and it serves probably the best sugar donuts of the town. It is very popular, so prepare yourself for little waiting, especially in the afternoons, but don't give up, they really are worth waiting, those donuts!

Usually very crowded (even close to closing time) but the atmosphere is great as the staff is friendly and the place itself is very cozy. Coffee is reasonably priced
