“Best in the harbor”

Old railway station in the harbor converted into a café. Reasonable prices for the over sized buns and cakes made on premises. Really the only negative are the long lines when the weather is good.

The traditional-style wooden decorated building used to be a railway station at Lahti harbour. There is beautiful view of the lake and in summer (starting in april) and spacious outdoor seating. This cafe is very popular with locals and visitors alike. On weekend afternoons it's a bit crowded but on weekday evenings it has a nice friendly relaxed atmosphere. The loudest noise you hear are the hundreds of gulls on the lake.

Home made pastries with a reasonable price. Traditional Finnish cinnamon rolls, best on town. Service is friendly. A must place to visit in Lahti!

This is a place where you find best cinnamon buns (Korvapuusti) in Lahti. My choice every time I get in here. They serve delicious savoury pies and cheesecakes as well, I´m told. Sit inside in winter or when rainy. Lovely old furniture there. Outside on sunny day enjoying lovely scenes of Lahti harbour. But beware of gulls!
