If you visit Vaasa and want to enjoy a light lunch, an excellent choice is Bistro A.W. Stenfors, which can be found in Vaasa Market Hall near the market square. They offer salads, sandwiches and especially caesar salads. They have half a dozen fixed versions, but you can also create your own combination. The salad is served with slices of... More

Beautiful place and such nice services! Tapas and wine also lunch and breakfast! You can just drop in and choose cheeses and charcuterie from the counter and let them choose the beer or wine for You!

Athmosphere is so orginal - people just chilling & shopping. You have to go there if in VAASA. Shop owners are super nice and helpful. Fresh food, sallads, sweets, coffee Specially cheese & fish shops are my favorite ones! Go & feel the spirit!

Small but get's to the athmosphere you find in Helsinki. Still Not quite like Östermalms saluhall in Stockholm. Portions are well prepared and Service is outstanding. It's small, but in small Town like Vaasa it's in scale.

This is a hidden gem located at the heart of Vaasa. In the famous Kauppahalli there is a food restaurant that has succeeded to provide a high class meal combined with a neat atmosphere and great service. If you're visiting Vaasa and you are looking for that little extra lunch, this is the place to go to. Highly recommended!

There are few shops and restaurant, but you could thought that Vaasa had a bigger Kauppahalli. If you are in the neighbourhood, why not drop by, but it´s not really worth of sightseeing by itself.

If you like the bigger halls in Helsinki or Stockholm, you´ll get excited by this smaller one. Irresistible smells are spread from the cafes. At a small restaurant you can get a plate with spring rolls, rice, cabbage and carrot (for 4 €!) or a bigger meal. There are different shops. One of them was closed, for "summer vacation", presumably... More
