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

An amazing traditional coffee shop built in and old train station in the harbor of Lahti. Good coffee, pastries and tasty cakes! All home made I think.

This is very nice place to have a cake with a tee/coffee. Really nice old interiors and nice staff. Cakes are delicious and there is big variety of tees and coffees. You can sit inside and enjoy rooms of the old railway station or outside and enjoy view of the harbor. You will love this place!

Old railway station in the harbor converted into a café. Reasonable prices for the over sized buns and cakes made on premises. Really the only negative are the long lines when the weather is good. - Local Yokel -

The traditional-style wooden decorated building used to be a railway station at Lahti harbour. There is beautiful view of the lake and in summer (starting in april) and spacious outdoor seating. This cafe is very popular with locals and visitors alike. On weekend afternoons it's a bit crowded but on weekday evenings it has a nice friendly relaxed atmosphere. The... More

This is a place where you find best cinnamon buns (Korvapuusti) in Lahti. My choice every time I get in here. They serve delicious savoury pies and cheesecakes as well, I´m told. Sit inside in winter or when rainy. Lovely old furniture there. Outside on sunny day enjoying lovely scenes of Lahti harbour. But beware of gulls!
