Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Vesikioski (or Vesibaari) means a water kiosk. In the 19th century there weren't water pipes in Joensuu and water was sold to people from water kiosks. Nowadays you get both water (free), special coffees, tea, iced tea, soft drinks, beer, cocktails, wine and sparkling wine...from Vesikioski. Also food is available, including breakfasts (from Monday to Saturday at 7.30 AM - 10.30 AM), salmon soup, salads, bagels, French fries, nachos, potato chips, pop corns etc. However, pullavohveli (or puhveli by the nickname) is the specialty of Vesikioski. I really recommend pullavohveli. Literally it means a bun waffle and actually it is a bun slice which is cooked in a waffle iron. A portion includes two bun waffles, ice cream and 2-4 side dishes. You may choose ice cream and side dishes (e.g. bananas, strawberry jam, apple-cinnamon jam, vanilla sauce, honey, cholate sauce, Nutella, kinuski/toffee sauce, agave syrup, salted nuts, coconut flakes, marshmallows etc.) yourself. You have to try this at least once when you are visiting Joensuu. This is "the must", I think. Besides, the fenced summer terrace with parasols is a very cozy place. This is an excellent way to enjoy a sunny summer day!More

This wooden cafe in Joensuu's central park is resembling the decorative water kiosks of the early 20th century. This kiosk was built in 2015. After visiting the Art Museum Onni next door, we had refreshing Aperol Spritzes here on the terrace. They were well made...and reasonably priced. The service was friendly.More

My partner and I stopped here for late breakfast at noon the day after the Ilosaari rock festival and we couldn't have been happier! He chose a BBQ chicken bagel (not actually a genuine bagel but a local type of bread called vesirinkeli, a bit...similar to a bagel) and a cappuccino, while I went for a green smoothie, a waffle with fresh strawberries and vanilla ice-cream and a green tea. The waffle was not just any waffle but a special type made of pulla (Finnish sweet bun). Super yummy - totally made my day! I only wish they didn't use an icky artificial whip cream from a can, but the real thing. It was nice to be able to enjoy our breakfast outside, too.More

Excellent, modern streetfood and surprisingly many options to choose from. Waffels and bagels with many different toppings. Summer cocktails and also some wines. Would have got five stars but the staff was not as friendly as possible.

Delicious street food right in the middle of Joensuu! Unique and cute cafe offering lovely bagels, waffles and drinks. Not the cheapest cafe around, but the deliciousness makes up for the price! The only minus for me was the wooden fork, which is a lovely...idea, but every time I bit into it I got shivers going down my spine. This could be just me and my teeth tho!More
