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.

Houkutus is great place to eat breakfast. It’s nice Cafe and Cakeshop. There you can find a good variety of choices for breakfast and short break during a day.

Houkutus is the best cake shop in town! So many nice choices, even vegan options just from the counter! Also nice salad bar for lunch (a bit pricey though) and ice cream for the kids and warm days. Worth a visit!

This is my favourite place to have a salad. I am not usually excited about ordering salads but this place changed my views on it. Nice open space and when the weather is permissible, you can sit outside.

Cafe & cakeshop Houkutus is located right in the city of Kuopio near the shopping centers. Tasty salty pastries, sweet cakes and ice cream. Gluten free choices available.

i tried the salmon pie with warm chocolate drink last time, because i thought it would be too much if i chose sweet dessert. i like the food and ambiance, but unfortunately the distance between tables are too close, in my opinion, so it feels...too packed inside.More

Been here many times and it is plain and simple. It is just good. Doesn't matter if you have coffee, tea, cake or some lunch. It is good.

This cafe was a nice surprise, had a good vibe on it! Good cappuccino with almond milk. I would have liked something healthier vegan options for breakfast, but I do know that breakfast culture isn't yet strong in Finland. Maybe this cafe could be a...leader on it? My mum and sister had coffees and cakes, they loved them! Lots of options for cake lovers. Will go again next summer when in town.More

The first good thing to discover was to find Houkutus open before 9am on a Saturday morning. The place was pretty much empty and no wonder the free WiFi worked really good. They serve traditional Finnish President coffee, which was quite good. A lot of...cakes and other sweet goodies but no real choices for a good and healthy breakfast. My blueberry -almond milk smoothie was delicious though. By Finnish standards this a big coffee place. Really nice service and quiet location just a block away from the central market place.More

Houkutus is situated in Kuopio´s city center but still in its very own corner. It is quiet spacious and always bustling with satisfied customers. I have been there a couple of times and always enjoy sitting, drinking coffee and eating delicious cakes and chatting with...friends. Staff is nice and quick. Cakes and coffee have a decent price. In summers it is even better when the restaurant has its sitting arrangement spread outside under the blue skies.More

Houkutus offers a wide selection of tasty cakes, pies, and drinks which you can enjoy on the spot or take with you. We bought one sandwich cake and one raspberry cake to a graduation party and our guest loved them. Very nicely decorated cakes and...a taste like heaven :)More

It is price worth and good quality to take a hot lunch at Houkutus. Located in the main shopping street of Kuopio opposite of H&M. The self-service restaurant offers you a wide variety. The special dishes (soups, salads) are reasonable priced(between EUR 7 en EUR...10). Many staff members, young girls and working quite inefficient. Toilets are clean. Internet didn't work properly. I took several cappuccino's in Finland. To me the one at Houkutus was the best.More

The most difficult part of the visit is to choose between many delicious and wonderful looking treats: tarts, cakes and buns. Maybe you have to share them with your friend to be able to taste more. Atmosphere is nice, decoration as well, and many people...pop in to read book, have meeting and meet friends. Cozy place with good service. Next to the city heart market place.More

Popular cafe in the centre of Kuopio. Lots of different kind of cakes and other baked goods, good coffees and teas. I often take a lunch here, really delicious, fresh and good quality salads. Little bit expensive, but you know always what you will get!

We've chosen this cozy place for a warmup at a rainy day. The staff is very friendly and kids are also warmly welcomed (we're there with our 1 year old). They heated up a small portion of rigatoni from their pasta salad for our baby...and we enjoyed a tasty sandwich with ham. The cappuchino also tasted great and so we can recommend this place to everybody when visiting Kuopio.More
