Our favourite cafe in Hämeenlinna. Excellent location in the city centre close to the market place. Absolutely fantastic selection of cakes and both salty and sweet pastries including traditional Finnish cinnamon rolls. Good selection of coffees.

Breakfast at noon, fresh tomato-mozzarella bread and a danish. Coffee a bit bitter but on the whole: works!
