This place is a must if you visit Lahti harbour. You get excellent coffee, very good pastries, uplifting atmosphere and the views to the lake Vesijärvi. It's a good place to start the day, meet friends or family, hangout in the afternoon with a good book and a coffee etc.

The café is located in Lahti Harbour. A good place for the summer to discuss and make plans. Lake View gives space to think. The port has a peaceful atmosphere. The cafe is really delicious pastries and good coffee and tea supply.

Savory pastries like cheese horn are big and tasty. Do not eat alone... its big and full of "white water skier" cheese. Summer terrace overlooking the lake is exquisite.

This very nice and cosy cafe is situated in old Railway station house by an excellent lakeside in Vesijärvi harbour in Lahti. They bake all homemade cakes, tasty buns and other pasteries in their own kitchen, so the tempting aroma welcomes you at the door to welcome. There is also large outdoor Terrace. This is a place where excellent views,... More

Enormous cinnamon buns and a wide variety of pastries to choose from. Nice atmosphere. Lots of interesting details to look at. Warm summer days and evenings to enjoy by the lake Vesijärvi.

Sun is shining and got visions of that perfect café in the sun with a nice view? Well if in the city you are out of luck. It's Lego town here and most everything is "prefab" crap. So head out to "pikku järvi" and stroll down to this new "One percent area". Nice old building with decent "patina" (look it... More

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.
