The best coffee shop

Definitely one of the nicest cafes I've ever been. Simple, but yet delicious buns, and cakes, awesome aroma of cocoa and coffee at 9 am in the morning! Prices are really good, and everybody is welcome.

There's not so many nice cafes in Lahti. Kahvila Kariranta is definitely one of it - stylish old-fashioned decor, yammy buns and cakes and reasonble prices are unbeatable combination

This coffee shop was selected the best one in Lahti region. It has strong reputation, and value for money is good. It is open every day, coffee is very good, and also all those food items that I'm not allowed to eat (doctor's order). Atmosphere is nice although I prefer more modern Scandinavian naked style.

Kahvila Kariranta is one of the main restaurants/coffee shops in the Lahti Harbor. Unlike the bars and on-water restaurants, the shop caters to less rowdy crowd with coffee, pastries, sandwiches, and other snacks. The interior of the shop is rather quaint, almost like dining inside an antiques shop or small historical museum. There is also ample outdoor seating on the... More

In a harbour, you can sit outside and watch a beautiful lake views. Or inside, enjoying old style furnitures and decoration. Coffee cups (small/big) are actually same size so don't pay 0,20 eur extra for a bigger one, but instead of it buy a bigger cheese croissant: it's so big you can take it as a lunch!

Café Kariranta is a cozy little coffee shop in the harbor. The cafe is an old station building and is decorated in the old style. They bake excellent sweet and savory pastries in the cafe.

Nice cafe at Lahti harbor. It seems to be very popular when weather is good. Great atmosphere and view. Reasonable prices. And croissants with cheese - they are HUGE.

Lahti marina is excellent place to visit - nature, history, people, restaurants all around you. Kariranta Cafe serves hot and cold beverages, sweet coffee bread, cakes, well you know... It is all there. It is popular, so prepare to queue a while. You can plan your menu while standing in line. Finnish Café service at its best, meaning that it... More
