Not a restaurant but an extremely good coffeehouse

Majuska is a very good coffeehouse in the historical surroundings of the Lappeenranta Fortress. The Majurska house was built in the mid 18th century. First it was a residential building for the families of the officers. Between 1936 and 1939 it served as a plague hospital and in the 1950's as an... read more

Very charming and unique cafe in the middle of Lappeenranta Fortress. The previous owner has collected the old-fashined furniture piece by piece. I especially recommend the house made apple pie or berry pies (varies which berries) with vanilla sauce. Very nice place for sunday coffee.

The must visit during long winter nights in Lapeenranta, if you are coffee or tea or cake lover. Really friendly atmosphere that lets you forgot about the dark and cold outside.

The charming place with a spirit of the past. All the personal is dressed up in white aprons and blouse. Taking into account the fact that all the girls in Finland are blond it is a paradise for man's eyes. The specialties of the house are cakes and pastry of different kinds. They are always unforgettable. Majurska is certainly the... More

This old fashioned coffee house in the fortress of Lappeenranta offers what everyone dreams during the cold finnish winter: hot coffee and marvellous traditional cakes. All the kind and gentle ladies of this magic place wear classic XIX century clothes. The atmosphere is warm, friendly and invites you to relax. The cakes are perfect. As Dan Peterson used to say:...

Situated in the old part of the town called Linnoitus, this Cafe Majurska is a gem. It is a perfect place to have a coffee break (or tea) in a historical old building, and try their home-made cakes. My favorite is the Quark cake with raspberry sauce! Every time I go to Lappeenranta I try to visit this place, as... More

This is a beautifully decorated cafe, with homemade cakes and sweets. A great place for a coffee with your loved one. Raspberry cake was good, coffee was delicious. Might be crowded during lunchtime, but still a must.
