Anna Edasi pays it forward

Anna Edasi (Pay It Forward) is a funny name for a café. Funny to those who are unaware of the fact that the name does not belong to the café, but to a person. Indeed, Anna Edasi was a feisty woman from the island of Hiiumaa. The simple meals she prepared are remembered by her granddaughter to this day.

And now the granddaughter is doing a bit more than just remembering – she is serving the dishes to others. Anna Edasi is a charming little café in the Karlova city district of Tartu. The streets are empty during daytime, as the bourgeois way of life is yet to find its way back to the neighbourhood. 

But it is sure to come back, as the café Anna Edasi is always packed with people. Homemade bread, semolina mousse and sugary pretzel are the three main attractions of the café. It may not be much, but it is more than enough for a small café.

TOP 50 OF ESTONIAN RESTAURANTS

The chart is prepared in two different parts. The judgement criteria are different for both parts.

First, 50 best restaurants are chosen from among approximately 1300 and the selection is based on the votes of the key workers of the restaurants.Each voter compiles a personal list of 7 restaurants that he or she thinks are the best in Estonia. The voters must have visited these places and the list cannot include the voters’ employers or restaurants related to their personal property. 

The restaurants that have been included in someone’s top 7 are invited to cast their votes as well. Each restaurant can appoint up to three of their most important employees as their voters: one member from the management team, one member from the kitchen staff and one member from the service staff. 

Taking part in the voting is strictly voluntary, not obligatory. The top 50 of Estonian restaurants is made up of restaurants that win the greatest number of votes. 

This is followed by a second round where food media representatives give their judgement. There are 30 of them: 12 from Estonia and 18 from abroad. Each restaurant is judged by 6–8 different judges, half of them from Estonia and half from abroad. 

The judges visit the restaurants anonymously. The judging is conducted by the method developed by the Swedish restaurant guide "White Guide" over a number of years. A total of 40 points can be given for food (17–21 satisfactory cuisine, 22–27 good level cuisine, 32–35 distinguishing cuisine, local top class, 36–40 brilliant cuisine, international top class). 

A total of 20 points can be given for drinks (8–10 satisfactory, 11–13 good, 14–17 distinguishing choice of drinks, local top class, 18–20 international top class). 

A total of 25 points can be given for service (8–12 satisfactory, 13–17 good, 18–22 local top class, 23–25 international top class). 

A total of 15 points can be given for milieu (5–7 neutral, 8–10 equal to the rest of the experience, 11–13 gives additional value to the experience, 14–15 is worth coming for by itself). 

The chart is formed based on the points given for food. If these points are equal, the sum of all scores will be considered. If these sums are also equal, the position in the chart is shared.
