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

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 -
