We visited this restaurant as part of an excursion from our hotel. The soup was amazing, I had tomato and my friends had elk soup. We were also given a choice of breads, second helpings, hot tea and jaffa cakes.
A lovely cosy location
We went here as a lunch included on our snowmobile tour. I chose the veggie tomato soup and my partner had the moose soup. Served with different breads and followed by tea and coffee with biscuits. I am very glad they took us here as...it was very good. There was a lot of history but we did not have time to look at everything displayed. Would definitely recommend stopping here for a lunchMore
Savottakahvila (aka Laanilan Savotta) is situated in Laanila (address Viskitie, Saariselkä), along the highway 4 (E75), near the starting point of Ruijanpolku Trail (read separate reviews) and other hiking trails to Urho Kekkonen National Park.
Savottakahvila is a cafeteria but they also serve soup lunch....They also offer hostel accommodation. In addition to this they say that they have a free museum. In my opinion it is only a small exhibition about the history of logging, log floating and other forest works.
The milieu in Savottakahvila is very interesting. They have many old items and beautiful details. They even have a fireplace with real fire. I loved this place very much!
This is also a good starting point for walking a couple of kilometers to Piispanoja campfire site or to the historical Prospektori miners' hut. These routes are accessible with a wheelchair or with a stroller, too.More
