Delicious and pretty sweets but staff could be kinder

The store looks lovely and so do and taste the sweets. However, like I've noticed in most Estonian markets, attractions, shops and so on, the staff is pretty taciturn and looks like they hate working there. Not even a faint smile. Thus, we felt like we were intruding. Pretty awkward.

Pros: Delicious all-vegan sweets, Beautiful interior

Cons: Staff is taciturn like in many other shops, Awkward atmosphere

Lovely place

When we went, there weren’t many truffles. The lady at the store said they’d get some in a few hours, so we couldn’t try it unfortunately. But the ones that we did try were good - snickers bar, marshmallow and some liquer kinda thing. The fact that it’s fully vegan gets it an extra star!

Absolute magic!

This spot is adorable and the chocolates are as imaginative as they are flavorful. There is a huge variety and everything is hand made. This place deserves a place in the hall of fame of vegan dessert spots!

Pros: 100% vegan since 2016, Absolutely charming decore, Free coffee and a spot to relax

Pretty charming atmospheric cafe

We went to this cute place. Inside you smell the chocolate so tasty. You can chose between a lot of vegan chocolate sweets -like a little paradise. (2.50 euro/sweet). But the two we chose were not that nice. We got a snickers sweet with peanuts and a chocolate one with raspberry. The snickers one was very very very sweet, too sweet for us and the raspberry one had a very synthetic flavor (a kind of chewing gum style) ... so we would not recommend this two, but maybe the others are better...they definitely look delicious and fabulous! And to sit inside and enjoy the nice cozy atmosphere should be recommended as well :)

Not enough STARS**********

A beautiful and elegant little chocolate cafe with free coffee and tea in a beautiful sitting room. And the chocolate… oh my god. I had the Baileys truffle and the banana truffle—@€2.5.

Hint: they are about the size of an American brownie but really each one should probably be sliced up into 8 smaller truffles.

Of course, there are not a lot of vegan chocolatiers in the world that I know of, but this is the best of the few I have experienced. Ilva, who is Swedish, is the very friendly chocolatier.

Cute and delicious

A cute little shop in the old town. I tried the snikkers and the Bailey's. They were both delicious. The Bailey's had quite a lot of alcohol. The spice was also fine at 2.5€ each.

Pros: All vegan, Many options, Delicious

Living legend

It's a must for us to visit Karu Talu every time we come to Tallin! The salted caramel chocolate is our ultimate favorite. It is perhaps good to know that they use liquor to achieve many of the flavours, so there is a ting of alcohol after taste in some of the pieces. Their shop is super cute, but note that they take only cash payments. The shop owner is super nice as well!

Pros: Great chocolate, Cute place

Cons: Cash only

So much delicious selection (and all vegan!)

This is a lovely little shop near the town centre with so much vegan selection! I had a hard time choosing, so I took the proprietor’s top two recommendations: a Vana Tallinn chocolate square and a snickers square. Both were good, but not my favourite. I loved the texture and creaminess of the Vana Tallinn chocolate square, but I wasn’t a fan of how strong the alcohol flavour was (I’m generally not a fan of liquor, so I probably should have avoided an alcohol infused chocolate). I enjoyed how the chocolate was coated in gold dust - very creative.

The snickers square was big, but too sweet for me. I also thought it could have been better balanced: the puffed rice (?) base could have been reduced in favour of more peanuts and some caramel.

I wish I had the opportunity to try some other sweets - there were so many on offer that I had trouble choosing. I’m sure that I could have found a favourite had I gone back for more snacks! Prices are very fair. I think I paid €4 total for my two sweets. I’m giving this three stars because I wasn’t a fan of the two sweets I had, but don’t let this stop you from going. It’s wonderful to find a vegan sweet shop with so much selection, and I’m sure I’d have found sweets I liked had I tried more.

Vegan chocolate heaven

The chocolates and sweets they have are delicious, and there’s so many options to choose from. The whole vibe in the shop is also great, with quirky interior and cute signs! Can highly recommend the Snickers and Marsipan, and also the one I bought which is on my photo (never really got the name).

Incredible vegan desserts

This is vegan heaven. There are loads of different flavours of chocolate truffle bars. I had a bounty and my boyfriend had a snickers. Will definitely be back. The woman is so friendly and even gave us free samples. The best part was that the bars are only 2 euros each! So cheap.

A Hidden Treasure

Located on a narrow street just off the main square of the old town, Karu Talu Sokolaad is easy to miss. But miss it you musn't! Everything from the friendly service, the charming interior, and the delicious chocolate (of course) will lure you back.

The snickers slice is a must try, and at only €2 per slice, is excellent value.

Their peanut butter bars are absolutely delicious and basically a meal for two to three people. I just wish you could sit down and have a coffee with your metric kiloton of sugar!
