Train romance

Behind Tallinn’s Baltic Station and next to Telliskivi Creative City, there is a former depot area where old railway wagons were repaired and new ones built. Today the area has a container hotel, a motorcycle workshop and an empty area with a flea market and a handful of street food kiosks. In the middle of it all are two railway (restaurant) wagons, reminiscent of old times. They are not abandoned, both wagons have been restored to exactly what they looked like in their heyday. The bustling in and around them starts shortly before noon with lunch and ends late at night with a party.
Interestingly, wagons that do not move anywhere attract far more people than those that do. The menu includes brunch, five different burgers, two salads, soup, snacks and a couple of desserts. That is it and there is no point in wanting more from the wagon kitchen because the food is unexpectedly delicious and made from restaurant-quality ingredients. What attracts people to eat good food in or next to an old railway car? Maybe it’s the train romance, which is probably a little different for everyone here.
