Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We visited this cafe in 2019 and loved the coffee and cakes they sell. Just as good post Covid lockdowns. You can get there by walking as well as skiing.

Really nice place to visit! You can go there even with skiing so it was great. Nice and cozy atmosphere, great vegetarian soup and good bread. I recommend!

What a find! It is a beautiful ski to this trail side cafe, and it is our daily stop! We love the lentil soup and chocolate cake with cloudberry cream! We should try some of the many other offerings, but the lentil soup is outstanding!...The chef recognized us yesterday and started heating up the soup! The staff is friendly and helpful, thank you for your help in speaking English with us! The atmosphere in this cafe is wonderful! We love the art, the music that is played! There is even a tipi with a fire to warm you up! It is possible to buy some handmade things. We love this cafe!More

Absolutely loved this place and stopped for lunch & coffee twice during our weeklong visit to Äkäslompolo. A haven of warmth after the frigid temperatures outside, such genuine hospitality & excellent food - you simply MUST try the smoked reindeer soup, which is to die...for! The place is full of atmosphere!More

A short ski from the village and ideal stop for coffee on the way to Kotamaja or where ever, Navettagalleria offer great coffee, soup lunch, great cakes and what are surely the worlds' best doughnuts. There is a toilet. The shop itself is also an...artists' gallery and provides an interesting and warm environment.( please see the photos here ). With the fire and a warm welcome from the English/Finnish speaking lady, you feel truly in Lapland.( hopefully my attempts of Finnish were understood!) The dining area is small, so you may find yourself sharing a table with other skiers, which is a great way to meet people if you want to. In all a must do visit and well worth it. Kiitos paljon, muunkki on paras maailmassa. Nähdään Hytikuussa.More

We did our very first day of cross-country skiing out over the frozen lake and then up through the forest, winding up in this amazing little cafe for lunch. Really lovely place: wonderful friendly owners, and the best Finnish home-cooking we had the whole time...we were in the country. Highly recommended.More

Very very charming, authentic and atmospheric mountain log. A great place to take a break while making winter sports, and not only. The staff fit the cabin very well, as they too are full of stories and welcoming spirit! The fish cake was very good.

This was our recreational stop during a 10+ km skiing trek. The place is amazing with three different spaces, and very popular. The service was very friendly, and excellent in other ways as well.

This was a nice stop off on our final day of cross country skiing. The poro soup was very tasty, however it felt a little bit dark, so some better lighting needed perhaps?

We walked here across the frozen lake and following a well marked path through the forest. The menu was perfect for a hot Berry juice and a cake at the mid point of our walk. Gluten free was well catered for too. The atmosphere felt...very cosy and it was pleasantly busy with walkers and cross country skiers. Recommended.More
