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.

This is one of my favourite cafes in Lahti ! Authentic Finnish, traditional place with incredibly tasty, traditional, classic pastries made in way no other bakery in the world do and was really impressed with the size of the slices, really big!  Their croissants with...ham and cheese were amazing and traditional Finnish cinnamon rolls, best on town. They have a very cozy interior and a large summer terrace with lake view. There are lots of regulars at the cafe. The atmosphere is cosy .Great customer service ! Thank you for being here 😘 .The place is definitely worth going to and would recommend it definitely everyone visiting Lahti. 👍More

Kahvila Kariranta is one of the cafeterias in Lahti Harbor and I have to admit that Kahvila Kariranta is extremely good. They have a very cozy interior and a large summer terrace with lake view. I loved the combination of delicious cake and beautiful view....Besides, service was extremely kind on June 15th, 2023. There is a playground for small children next to the cafeteria.More

Nice, lovely location by the lake, a historic building, where you can feel the past old days. A good selection to eat something good with a coffee/tea. They have really delicious strawberry tea, highly recommend to taste it! Lovely cakes, don't go there, if you...shouldn't spoil yourself!Someone asked vegan options (salty ones) and they didn't have any, the option was sold out and it was quite early (midday). So nice cafe should have more than one sold out vegan option to choose, we live 2021!! That's why I can't give 5 stars.. Other wise very nice experience.More

The products were not fresh as before, so sad! The cinnamon bun were dry and thin and the croissant too, not even the dog ate them. But the banana-chocolate cake was amazing!

This old railway station is a very charming café in the Lahti harbour. On the summer time there is a large terrace outside to enjoy the lake view with their tasty salty or sweet pastries and cakes. Indoors it has a relaxed feeling to it....In my family this place is known for their cinamon buns, and that what we usually take, with a fresh cup of coffee. The café is very popular though, but worth waiting a little in line, if visited on a busy afternoon.More

A lovely cafe in a lovely location. Plenty of sweet and salty treats to choose from and a sunny terrace, too. The cafe is very popular, so it may be very busy, though.

Me and my hubby were so impressed with this cozy athmosphere and friendly staff. We had two toddlers with us and we felt so welcomed. Even though place was crowded, other customers who were leaving, offered us their seats. This giant cinnamon roll is a...must! And look at the hot chocolate! Yum! 😋More
