Herkkujuustola is located in Häijää (Sastamala), between Tampere and Pori. The quite new building consists of a cheese factory, a cafeteria-restaurant and a cheese shop. The cafeteria-restaurant is extremely good. They use their own handmade cheeses and other local ingredients. The lunch time is at...10 a.m. - 2.30 p.m. on weekdays. For dinner they have an excellent bistro menu. It may be a good idea to make a table reservation for dinner, because the restaurant is quite small. The interior is very cozy. You see the cheese factory from indoor windows of the restaurant. They also have a nice summer terrace and a small outdoor playground for children. I really loved my cheese croissant and strawberry cake.More

Visited today Herkkujuustola at Sastamala which is nicely and newly build combination of restaurant and cheese factory, meaning that while eating you can watch the making of the cheese straight from your table from the window to the factory. Restaurant and cheese factory is owned...and runned by famous Swiss Cheese Master Peter Dörig. The food at restaurant was great and all the portions included some of their own cheeses which was a nice setup. The prices of the portions were on a very fair level especially when the portions was high quality. Would definitely recommend to visit this place if driving nearby and if you do, you must taste their cheese soup, that was mind-blowing!More
