Whenever we visit Lahti there are two places we always visit. One of them is the idyllic Kahvila Oskari in the center of Lahti, on Hameenkatu. Their food offering is broad, but for us, it is always coffee, and some cake. They do some specialty...coffees, although you will not get a flat white at Oskari. The regular filter coffee is however very decent. Their cake selection is very good, as are the cakes. On our visit in August 2019 we chose the Brita cake, which is really a sibling to Eton mess. The Brita cake was very tasty. The side cake - they have so many cakes on offer so one surely can’t have just one - lemon curd cake with vanilla sauce was pretty nice as well. The atmosphere at Oskari is very pleasant. They have tables outside, but we always prefer to sit inside of the idyllic coffee shop, where they have several different rooms to choose from. The service in the place is friendly, and very good. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Oskari.More

Go to Oskari, if you want to enjoy delicious snacks and lovely tea with ok prices. Prepare to queue for a few minutes, though, as there are always plenty of customers. But the rooms are cosy, and you easily spend an hour there, just enjoying...life.More

This is for vintage lovers and for them who want to see what kind of houses we used to have in Finland. Of course, because this is unique and in the center of the city, this is not a cheap place. If you want to...see somethin I described above, go! If you're in a hurry, go somewhere else.More

An excellent coffee shop with a brilliant selection of cakes and drinks. There is a wall with history of the building which is of nineteenth century construction. Great for afternoon tea.

Kahvila vanhassa puu rakennuskessa, symppis paikka. Maukkaista leivonnaisia ja suolaisia piirakoita. Mukava ja avulias henkilökunta. Kiva paikka vaikka pitää pieni palaveri. Cafe in the old wooden house, a sympathetic place. Tasty pastries and salty pies. Friendly and helpful staff. You can arrange a meeting in...a cozy environment.More

It was a beautiful surprise for us to find a such nice cafe in Lahti where is walking distance to our hotel. A charming and cozy place with delicious selections 30% cheaper than in Helsinki. It was a very good experience, highly recommended.
