Põhjaka has most likely become one of my favourite places to stop when travelling from one end of Estonia to the other. It used to be Sämmi grill many years ago, then it got closed (I think), so there was no reason to make a pit stop anymore, apart from buying hot chocolate from Statoil.
Põhjaka seems to have brought back the reason to break up a long journey again.
This restaurant is situated in an old manor house partially renovated, giving a slightly edgy, urban yet old feel to the place. Most importantly, it is very cosy and has little details, which almost make you feel at home.
My favourite detail was the one in the loo. They seem to have resolved the problem for mothers on where to leave their child when visiting the loo, by placing a large basket on the window sill. My little cherub was definitely very content there.
Look forward to visiting again.
