An atmospheric cafe in an old railway station by the harbour. Very lively and popular in the summertime. Delicious cinnamon rolls.

Some amazing home-baked goods in this cafe. The location is also impeccable being situated right by the lake. + location + authentic old building + baked goods - often too full to find a seat

Really a good surprise. Very nice, well decorated and cozy place near the lake. The cakes are very tasty and was really impressed with the size of the slices, really big! Very good prices as well. Will be back for sure! Highly recommend.

Just love the old railway station. Nice atmosphere, beautiful location next to lake Vesijärvi. Everything home baked, croissants filled with cheese and cakes - excellent!

It is a great place for a hot cup of coffee after a walk by the lake. The personnel were helpful and polite. The decoration was great, so was the cinnamon cookie.

A very charming Café in the small harbour. The normal coffee was good as was also the large cinnamon buns. They didn't seem to have a proper Espresso machine which I thought was strange for a popular place like this.
