Jun 2021
Nice and unique place to spent some time especially in summer when everything is very beautiful, green gras and flowers. You ca buy some handicrafts, have a cup of coffee or just hang around. Don´t miss this place if you are visiting Mikkeli!

Nice place in summer
Jul 2020
Tasty lunch and a good setting for a cup of coffee. The design shops in the area are rather pricey, though.

Old vicarage shopping mall
Jul 2020
Beautiful old vicarage building, on a former island. It was built 1869 and it is largest wooden vicarage in Finland. The story behind the name "Kenkävero - shoe tax" is unknown, there are at least three versions, which you can read when you visit the place.
Area has old vicarage building, few old buildings with bakery and shops and some new buildings also. The area is nice for taking a break and having snack at cafe for example.

Santa's summer cottage and other cultural experiences
Jul 2019 • Family
Drop by Santa's summer cottage and listen to who is being naughty or nice. This is especially nice for the children, and they can meet some animals and try out some workshops. Otherwise there is a good restaurant there which serves traditional foods made with local ingredients. Also a lot of locally produced goods and foods which are often handcrafted can be found in the many small shops there. I think there is a little bit for everyone here, come by alone, with your partner or whith the whole family and have a little cultural experience and try out some treats while you are at it.

Nostalgic souvenirs
Jul 2019 • Couples
Small handicraft shops and boutiques in a nostalgic environment. Take a look even if you're not planning to buy anything. A cafe and a restaurant available.

Great burgers in old vicarage
Jul 2019 • Family
This old vicarage is located very near the city center of Mikkeli.

There are few souvenir shops and pastries in the area of kenkävero but the place to visit is absolutely the restaurant.

They have a great buffet with all kinds of food nearby but we (2 adults and 2 teenagers) took burgers. Really tasty and lovely.

Highly recommend place.

Quaint
Jul 2019 • Family
A quaint place in old-worldy surroundings of old vicarage. Oddly, the menu in the restaurant is mainly burgers! They're classy burgers, not your usual creasy stuff, but still a little bit out of character. They were good though and service was friendly too.

Beautifull place for a brake on a way to Savo
Jul 2018 • Family
Had a lunch brake on vacation journey. Beautifull scenery, high level cafe with delicious meals and few nice shops for souveniers. We had a burger they had prepared between bread from own bakery. Nice food products to take away as well. Worth visiting especially on a sunny day.

Very special type of shopping just outside the town
May 2018 • Solo
The craft village, shop and a restaurant are clustered in a property, which from the road looks like some traditional buildings. In fact, behind the buildings, there is a herbal garden and artisan workshops. The shop has local as well as Finnish hand products, but you will immediately notice a large number of products featuring the botanical paintings done by Ebba Masalin, Mikkeli's own painter.

I walked out the city centre, crossed the bridge that connects the city with motor ways, and followed one of smaller roads with a map in my hand. The walk itself was a pleasant and didn't take much more than 15-20 minutes.

The time was as such that I have decided to have some snack. The restaurant serves typical Finnish buffet (€29) consisting of three courses and coffee in a beautiful house. I wanted something lighter so had apple juice and a quiche which was available from the cafe counter/casher. I took the tray with me to the garden in the back of the building, while the sun was shining, and had lunch looking down at the herbal garden and on to the lake.

Life can be beautiful.
