Delicious pastries, cakes, good coffee and the magnificent picturesque place. Especially in summer time, a fabulous place by the lake, at the city of Lahti just beside passenger Harbour. In winter you can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere and Interio in this little old railway station. At summer time from the harbor you can can take short as well as longer... More

It is a storied cafe and offers typical Finnish bakery. They don't offer lunch or dinner, but it is worth to having a happy afternoon there, near the lake of Lahti

This is a lovely spot for coffee and cake. Try a Finnish style savoury or sweet pastry. Choose between two different rooms or outside seating, and browse art and craft in the shop which adjoins it. Great spot if you are on your way to a concert at the Sibelius Hall.

I've been to this crowded café for a couple of times. Their products and coffee are good enough but in no means superior. They serve cinnamon rolls and cake slices of different kind.

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.
