Had the quiche , cinnamon roll and others had an assortment of baked goods and sandwiches. The cinnamon was the best I Had in Finland. Their croissants were amazing light and fluffy with just right amount of crunch. The sandwiches were a hit with those...who ordered them. The customer service was excellentMore

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.

If you’re in Lahti, you must go and see this cafe. Such a beautiful location at the harbour of Lahti and such an unique cafeterian. Always great service and really tasty servings. You should try their stuffed croisant with ham and cheese. It’s best croisant...I’ve eaten! This place is best at the summer!More

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

Most delicious freshly baked products, different sorts of cakes, pullas,salty pies(smoked salmon, vegetarian, ham) to go with a nice cup of coffee or tea. Pulla would be a bit hard to translate into English. It's a sort of sweet bun with sugar or crumbs of...almond on top.Kahvila Kariranta makes especially tasty 'korvapuusti'. It's a pulla flavoured with sugar and cinnamon.A literal translation would be "a box on the ear". For some odd reason this pulla has the same name as a box on the ear.More
