“Classic place with classic pastries”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

Our favourite place whene we`re in the area and want to enjoy a good talk with friends. They carry a wide selection of known and less known pastries at, for Finnland, reasonable prices. They also have a piano in the cafe but we never saw somebody playing - therefore only 4 points for this classy cafe.

“Delicious Danish”
Reviewed August 31, 2013

As a reasonably well-travelled Hämeenlinna native with a bit of a sweet tooth I have to say this is the finest bakery and patisserie we have in the region, and I'm not sure I've yet found a place that would match the danish, the cakes and the Finnish seasonal delicacies of Laurell!

“Excellent café, amazing choice of pastry, delicacies”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

Café Laurell in Hämeenlinna, (Sibelius street) is prbably the best café in Finland. What a choice! Delicious pastries, cakes, buns, what ever you can ask of a café. I have not seen a café like this anywhere else in Finland, not even in Helsinki. If you are in Hämeenlinna, do not miss this.

“Nice cafe with a best bakery in town”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Charming little cafe in the very center of the town and the very best bakery in the Hameenlinna. Sometimes service is a bit slow since the place is crowded.
