About
In the Old Town of Porvoo there is a red brick storehouse, built in 1902 by Oskar Simolin. The storehouse was a warehouse for Simolin’s department store. Throughout the decades different items have been stored in the building, for example coffee. This might be one of the reasons why Bar & Café Porvoon Paahtimo is located in the very same building. The building is situated on the riverbank, and you can reach it by boat during the summer. In the summer there is also a barge moored next to the terrace. The deck is the perfect place to be if you want to enjoy the fabulous view of the famous riverside of Porvoo. Inside the storehouse there are old beams in the ceiling and thick red brick walls, which contribute to a peaceful and historical atmosphere. You can smell the scent of freshly roasted coffee and listen to the cheerful hum of conversation – welcome to Porvoon Paahtimo! Porvoon Paahtimo has an alcohol license and there are plenty of drinks to choose from. Our assortment includes beer, wine, cider, cognac, whisky, sparkling wine, different mixed drinks and coffee drinks. Our most popular coffee drink is Irish coffee. We are particularly proud of our beer assortment, and there are different seasonal draught beers. Why not try one of our tasty beers? Porvoon Paahtimo has a wide variety of coffee and coffee drinks, and the coffee comes from our very own roastery. We also have one of the world’s finest coffees, Jamaica Blue Mountain, in our assortment. You can also find tea and hot chocolate in our bar and there are salty and sweet pastry for sale.

We stopped here to try some coffee and a traditional Finnish dessert - I only wish we had more time to sit and enjoy a cocktail while people watching or relaxing next to the canal. This is a must-stop spot if you're visiting Porvoo! The atmosphere is exactly what you want it to be, too.

Stopped by for drinks. Super friendly service. We wanted to try something different and while in Porvoo had a Runeberging torttu coffee which was surprisingly good. Terrance was a boat on the river by the restaurant which was great on a sunny summer day.

This cafe was a sanctuary from the rain for us as we walked around Porvoo’s old town. Great coffee and cake on the terrace overlooking the river was the perfect stop. We also got some good local tips for walking around from the friendly staff.

Very nice to stop for coffee and sweets. It has a terrace area and also, a boat with tables. Very charming. Coffee was good and refillable. Of course special coffees are not. Nice to sit by the river. Quite busy so popular times will mean no seats. Do recommend this place!

Porvoon Paahtimo (Porvoo Roastery) is an excellent cafe and bar, which is situated in a historical house made of red bricks. The house was built in 1902. They also have a new glazed terrace and an open summer terrace. Both coffee and beer selection are very good. Even Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee is available. Many alcohol drinks, salty snacks and sweet cakes are available, too. I especially loved mascarpone cake. When you are visiting Porvoo, you absolutely have to taste Runebergintorttu (Runeberg's Tart), the delicious pastry with almond and almond oil, decorated with jam and a ring of icing. According to a legend these tarts were invented by Fredrika Runeberg, the wife of Finland's national poet Johan Ludvig Runeberg (1804-1877) who lived in Porvoo. Another legend claims that the tart was invented by the local confectioner Lars Astenius in Porvoo and he gave the recipe to Fredrika's recipe book. Usually Runeberg's tarts are served only around the birthday of Johan Ludvig Runeberg (February 5th) in Finland. However, Porvoon Paahtimo and some other local cafeterias in Porvoo make Runeberg's tarts all the year round. So you have a special opportunity to taste these tarts here.

I stopped in here for a drink. It’s right on the river and offers some nice views. It’s an enjoyable place to sit with a refreshment for a little while.

The coffee house was near the pub. We ordered a beer and a long drink. It was nice to sit in the boat which was connected to the restaurant.

Great variety of beers and ciders and a fantastic location. The staff (might have been seasonal workers) didn't know too much about the products but were really friendly and helpful.

This place has some very interesting coffee flavor in town. It is situated next to the river som you can actually get your coffee or drink or all sitting in a boat outside the coffeehouse, on the river. Very special!
