Although the density of restaurants and cafes in the highest in Kuressaare, there are also plenty of places to eat outside the capital of the island. Specially in the summer, when the pop-up cafes open. The interesting small summer cafes can mainly be found outside of Kuressaare.


The people of Saaremaa have preferred local food for a long time. The pure products of Saaremaa are increasingly gathering fame outside the island. Next to vegetables, fish and mutton, more and more Saaremaa made jams and sauces of a vast variety are appearing in many kitchens and shops. If you want to buy products made in Saaremaa, look for a small blue label with the words “Ehtne toode” (Pure Product).
