Vertigo GourmetThe once fancy restaurant Vertigo, which had risen to the heavens within Tallinn, has come back down to earth. There were times when the dishes of Vertigo were a privilege for a select few, but now they are available for all.
There is a glass door in Tallinn right by the Viru Gates. If it is open, do not just pass by, because there you will find the tiny shop and café Vertigo.
Vertigo Gourmet Deli&Café
Viru 17, Tallinn
Open: Mon–Thu 9–20, Fri 9–21, Sat 10–21, Sun 11–19
Imre Kose has experienced absolutely everything a chef can experience in Estonia. The rather logical next step is – product development.
Here, Imre is bringing the freshest fruits of his development to the shop. He used to prepare regular food in an unusual way at his restaurant. Now, he develops products the same way.
“The longest black breads in the world,” he introduces his breads. Good taste is nothing if the product is not appealing visually.
The products of Vertigo are slowly beginning to appear on the shelves of the best supermarkets. It is still worth your while to step by their own shop in Tallinn, since at least 1/3 of all the products of Vertigo are only sold there.
Even though the shop is tiny, one cannot complain about the selection.
The packages are nice and the content delicious.
In the middle of this shelf is Caesar salad dressing. This is how the whole own production begun. Because it was so delicious that people demanded jars of it to go from the restaurant.
The “average” price of the products of Vertigo is € 2. The cheapest is the kama and hazelnut truffle (€ 0.60) and the most expensive the champagne Veuve Clicquot Grande Dame – € 207.
Do they drink champagne here? They do and how...
Even though there are a few seats, they are usually occupied quickly.
The Boston raisin rolls (€ 2.30) and cappuccino (€ 2.40) are delicious.
The popular daily soups are different every day but always cost € 1.90, and a bun on the side € 0.20. The soup can be eaten on the spot or bought to go.
Lavender tartlets (€ 1.80/piece), Tuscany and Provence together in one shortcrust pastry basket.
