Amazing choice of home-made cakes

The Marjuska is definitely a most wonderful place to enjoy coffee, tea, freshly backed cakes - there is always a wide variety of, all homemade - or light snacks. It's the ideal place for a year round visit. During summer time, seating in the garden under large timber trees is available. For the cold winter period or in case of... More

We've visited this cafe many times over the years for obvious reasons: excellent tee and coffee, tasty pastries and cakes, beautiful & historical furniture and house. All of this in the old fortress area. I recommend :)

Location in a old wooden house. They have variety of salty and sweet products. Have to go there at least twice a year. Christmas season is my favourite.

Everytime I stopd by in Lappeenranta - I always try to visit this place. They have this amazing quarkcake and it works every time. The atmosphere is chill and cozy. During the summer it's a must place to test with relatives for example. Location is not far from the center and there is a lot to see in that area... More

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 umbrella factory. The coffeehouse was opened in 1986.... 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.

We tried visit before but it was closed one day before, on and after christmas. It was worth waiting for. Great authentic atmosphere good coffee and very tastefull cakes. Really a must see, do and taste place. Also a shop there with very nice local products. Unfortunately for Europeans much to expensive.
