Great location…peaceful and full of scenery. Good place for a beer of coffee. They have several pastries to choose from, as well as ice cream. I would take any family visitors to this cafe just for the experience.

Cafe building is old sauna / summerhous refurbished to modern times. Idyllic scenery by Jyrängönkoski rapids. It's best to enjoy refreshments and pastries in the summer. The café has a few salty pastries and more pastries. Food can be ordered for a larger group. We...found a place by chance when Harju Pavilion was closed that day. Free Wifi. For boaters, there is a guest pier where the outer drafts are sufficient for large vessels.More

Situated on the small isle under the bridge that has served as the symbol of the town for over half a century, this delicately constructed cafe serves a variety of people. From passers-by to people travelling distances by boat(there’s a lovely little peer), the service...is welcoming and positive. The menu has freshly baked pasteries and salads and the coffee is not limited to the ”Finnish brew”. -The ice latte is great. There’s also a good variety of alcoholic beverages on sale. An absolutely go-to place when visiting these parts of Finland. When you see the old bridge, you cannot miss this place.More

We were looking for a place to get a coffee and some salty pastries. Some places we just turned around, but finally we found this cafeteria under the bridge. I forgot completely that I was a bit hungry after a saw the most deligious (and...tasting) apple pie.More

I really enjoyed this place, the view is breathtaking. This place is excellent for a quick lunch, or for coffee. The service is excellent and the prices are reasonable.

This is the reason to stop in Heinola if you are driving pass the Heinola city. The view is amazing. You can't find another place like this.

Truly one of the hidden gems of the whole nation, Café Kailas is located on the small island of Siltasaari (literally "bridge island") practically under the large, iconic railway bridge (you see what they did there?) That runs over the rapids of the river Kymi...(kymenvirta). The setting is absolutely beautiful, with large old trees providing shade to lovely terraces and the small old-style red buildings that comprise the café. Access is via the main road by car, via a lively footpath from the neighbouring car park, or, for those lucky enough to experience Heinola by boat, by one of two large piers on the water. The service is friendly, the cappuccino made professionally on proper equipment (none of that one-press automatic service station crap) and the cakes are truly fresh and wonderful! This is THE place to stop by for a cup of coffee and a short break while driving past, or to spend an afternoon or evening with family and friends, enjoying ice-creams or ice cold lager. Or the finnish Long Drink, or "lonkero".More
