People who advance rural life and thereby inspire others are called the salt of the earth in Estonia. In the recent years this has largely manifested in new eateries being opened in rural areas. One good example is Vana Kooli Kohvik (Old School Cafe) in Lindi village.
An eatery in a village with 300 residents doesn’t sound like a sustainable business idea, but it all depends on how you run the place. The villagers love to gather in the old schoolhouse, whether for an event or just to eat. Passers-by slow down and turn in, because the old wooden house in the shade of the trees looks somehow attractive.
Inside you will meet the hostess’ dachshund, who has been tasked with manning the door and entertaining the guests. The dining hall of the school has a timeless atmosphere, you will not find anything new and modern here. Everything is recycled. A buffet of authentic homestyle food made of ingredients from the village fits perfectly into this milieu. Salt of the earth can be experienced in Lindi year-round.
