This place had really tasty food and great atmosphere! Pretty busy at the time we visited so we had to wait our orders quite a bit. But was worth to wait 👍🏻

This is excellent Café and restaurant. Food is extremely good ja the house itselleni is phenomenom. I suggest not to missä this, when you are in Oulu.

This place is situated in an old wooden house. The first impression was a little confusing, at least for a first-timer. There are at least two sales counters, one for bar and one for cafe products. The staff is running from one counter to another....Downstairs you will find a night club.More

This was the second time I tried to eat at this place but during the first time they had run out of food (which they told me quite impolitely) and this second time the queue in the kitchen was up to 2 hours. I gave...feedback by email but the response left me disappointed. The person I wrote feedback to actually told me that the pizzeria next door is very good, so if you are hungry and want good service, it might be a good idea to go there instead.More

coleslaw completely lacked flavour (no vinegar, no salt, seemed to have been made using cream and not mayo), sausages were wrinkly and unappealing (especially the red sausages), ice cream was completely crystallised (suggesting it had melted before and been refrozen), juices offered were from a...box, no hot milk available for coffee, coffee was filtered coffee, croissants were dry, salads were an off-putting mess of things (especially the broccoli concoction), mini pizza was just disgusting, cold cuts and cheeses utterly plain, cinnamol swirl buns overbaked, topping used had no flavour. have been wanting to visit this place for brunch for quite some time, visited with family. kids ate watermelon + croissants only, adults tried most things offered and sadly can't say that our expectations were met, no value for money. on top of everything, restaurant was sol cold (!) in september, that we all had to put coats on. disappointed on every level.More

On the way home, just passing by. This restaurant was a recommendation of a local as we were looking for a dog friendly restaurant. Great burgers and salads! Very friendly people

The windows of this establishment are above the street level so you might just bypass this old building without noticing the popularity of the cafe. Often quite full and some queuing is unavoidable. Salads and burgers are the main fare. Modest prices. - And the...real treat is downstairs - a cosy cellar pub with ample selection of beers. Food is served also to the pub.More
