Very nice and friendly place to have a daily lunch. Excellent service and overall good food. I´ll recommend it! Kaffehuset August is well located nearby the city square.

We went to this place since we had seen people eating tasty looking portions out on the terrace. I had goat cheese sandwich&salad, the name has slipped my mind.

This is a family-run café with a very tasty menu (a bit pricey, but very good!), suitable for a lunch or a dinner. No rush and lots of friendly attention from the owner. The food is fresh and delicious. One of the musts in Vaasa, I would say. (And the desert, oh my Gastronomic God!)

Worst Cappuccino ever! They have an ok machine but don't know how to use it right. Taste was just burned and watery. Very disappointing!

Very cosy and familiarly place! Friendly staff and the owner Mårten is one of a kind - always happy and joking with the customers - we like that! The food is good and the cappucino is the best coffee in town!
