Not a fancy place at all, but breakfast and service was good. I enjoyed the atmosphere, sitting at the counter and observing groups gathering around tables for coffee and conversation. It's just that kind of place. They also sell pasties to go.

They serve a lot of food, and a lot of food gets thrown out. Listening to other patrons, many come every week for their breakfasts. The nisu French toast is loaded with cardamom and could be shared between two people. I had the panaukakua which is like a heavy mushy custard with a side of blueberry sauce. If you're looking for quality and not quantity, I'd drive to cafe Rosetta in calumet.

Local friends say Kaleva has wonderful pasties and breakfasts, but we were there only for a mid-afternoon cup of coffee (which met our pretty high standards) and a sweet treat. The baked goods are of the home cooking variety--not fancy, but very tasty. Bonus: very nicely maintained place, including the restroom.

I loved the charm of this place and it was packed with customers so you know it's good. I tried to go back on Sunday and it was too full (understandably)

A little run down. The hamberger I had was not very good. Large area but not many tables filled with people. At one time, we were the only ones here.
