Very cute, cozy bake shop

This is a little shop a short walk from the main harbour. It offers baked goods and espresso drinks. It is very nice inside, cozy but usually busy so you can't always find yourself a seat. It is right by the water so is nice to stop in for a quick bite while on a relaxing walk.

A nice, picturesque café in the harbor of Lahti. Seating inside and outside on the terrace in good weather. Friendly service. With a bit wider selection, I would have gone for 4 out of 5.

This charming cafe is located in an old railway station in the harbour of Lahti. The only negative point is that there is always queue because it is so popular. In anyway, it's the best cafe in Lahti. Try cinnamon bun or croissant with cheese.

There is always home-baked pies and others. Much more nicer place than places in city center, but only few minutes a way from there.

This is definitely a place worth of visit. Located next to a lake, in a beautiful area this place welcomes you warmly to enjoy a cup of coffee with delicious home-baked pastries. When it's still by a reasonable price and smiling staff, you can just relax. Try one of those pies (with ham, reindeer, or coat cheese, selection varies day... More

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
