Off the lakeside road, by the parking/playarea/sauna where walking trails start. Just a tiny cafe with the loveliest lady who served hot tea and scrumtious cinnamon buns for only 1EURO each!! Compared with other cafe prices it was amazing value and when we enquired about how cheap the tea and buns were she said 'I want families to come here - I have children as well, I didn't want it to be Helsinki prices' Plus as she was locking up she presented us with the remaining buns from the cafe (5 of them) and didn't want us to pay for them! She had only been open for 2 weeks. We wish here well....

Nice soup, fresh bread and munkkikahvit in a beautiful spot

The prices are very reasonable and the place is cozy. It is great to do some hiking or biking and stop here for soup and always fresh buns (sämpylät). The coffee + munkkirinkilä, fresh dougnuts, are very famous and reasonably priced.

Looking for a place to pop in after/during a hike or ski in the Espoo forests - this is the place for big size servings: buns, pies, soup and hot coffee and chocolat.
