Apple Cafes Day - in Kuressaare on island Saaremaa invites

Apple Cafes day

Apple Cafes’ Day, 17 September – every apple lover’s dream Sunday!

Every year in the middle of September, there is one and only special Sunday when the number of cafes in Kuressaare multiplies. It is on this day that Saaremaa Food Festival’s flavoursome Apple Cafes are open. This is a very exclusive opportunity for everyone who wants to open their own cafe even if only for one day. Apple cafes are like apples themselves – there are always some good, old and well-known “varieties”, i.e. already familiar courtyard cafes, as well as completely new surprises. Each cafe has its own style. However, all of them are “made from apples”, that is, pastries, pies, cakes and drinks are mostly made from apples.

It is worth setting aside a whole day to visit the apple cafes and it will probably still not be enough. There are simply so many exciting places to visit and see. Kuressaare is just the right size to walk or cycle from cafe to cafe. This way, the day will turn into a deliciously healthy gourmet trip, where you can invite your family and friends as well.

One thing is clear – the autumn apple harvest is always used incredibly creatively, there seems to be no end to the great recipes!

Apple of Eden

Location: Kitzbergi 22 Kuressaare

Apple of Eden will please your palate and mind! At Apple of Eden, we offer delicacies from a young kitchen king. For example, the star of the savory dishes is pan bread with smoked fish cream. The chef also offers homemade lasagna and nutmeg soup with various side dishes. For dessert, we have many baked goods available ranging from apple and toffee cinnamon rolls to red velvet cake and Grandma`s apple pie. You can also expect live music in the cafe area – a band the likes of which are not often found in Kuressaare will offer a performance. Well-known songs from this and the previous century are performed by an ensemble of bassoon and piano/guitar. The cherry on the apple cake is a chat menu with a mental health professional.

Apple of Eden offers joyful experiences, come and you won t regret it!
