Favorite place in the heart of Kuopio

my all time favorite. Staff is friendly and products are truly delicious. Coffee is super good, and especially their hot mint chocolate is to die for. Every time I visit Kuopio, I go to Kaneli and sit there for few hours. It's so cozy in there! Also, if you're thinking about a romantic place for... read more

This charming small cafeteria offers a selection of sweet and savory pies and other pastries that have always been delicious when I've visited the place. The atmosphere takes the customer to earlier decades and maybe to Central Europe. You can almost forget that you are deep in the Savo region. Only negative thing is that waiter/cashier doesn't seem to be... More

After that, we have been coming to Kuopio with my wife every summer just to visit this place (Kuopio is a beautiful town even otside the business hours!). The interior is old-fashioned and very cozy. The music is old jazz etc. easy music... More

We were returning from Jukola 2014 orienteering weekend, and Kahvila Kaneli was still open when we reached Kuopio on Sunday. We walked past the place on Friday and noticed how nice it looked even from outside! It really turned out to be a cozy and quiet place to visit and relax before returning to Helsinki. Recommended.

I took only a cup of cafe in a lazy Sunday morning but there seems to be many kinds of salt and sweet pastries. I liked most of all the 30s style atmosphere - especially music which was old jazz. They have also small terrace on the backyard.

The cafe house was very cosy and they had very good salty and sweet pies. The best thing was their home-made sweet ice tea, I definitely recommend!

Decorated with antique stuff and has a cozy atmosphere. Great place to catch a breath between shopping or other in-town activities. Small but atmospheric.

Small cafe of the central market square. Filled with antiques and served all kinds of coffees, sweet and savoury munchies. Very tasty and fresh.
