Soup and cake, beer
Why locals love it
It's a good place to have quick lunch or grab a drink with friends. Also, it has good music: interesting, pleasant and not too loud so you can have a chat. And there is excellent service.
Why you should visit it
Pirogov offers hearty and relatively cheap soups of a slightly Hungarian slant - a great thing for a backpacker. There is also good, inexpensive beer and wine, and a wide choice of strong drinks (including at least three palinkas - not an everyday sight in Estonia).
Try the cakes!
