“like what a Finnish Grandmother would serve....”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We stopped here for lunch and we really enjoyed our lunch. I had never had stuffed pepper soup and it was very good. I've had pasties throughout the UP and these were really good and were stuffed full of meat and vegetables. My wife ordered the pannukakku (Finnish pancakes) and these were really good. I had some of hers and treated it like dessert. The service was good and the historical pictures on the wall were cool. Well worth the stop

“Love This Place”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

I've been going to the Suomi for years, since about mid-1970's and the quality is still there! Great food, yummy pasties AND delish cookies!!!

“Best breakfast you'll ever have!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

You can't go wrong with a standard egg/meat/potato/toast breakfast, but their homemade bread and local sausage really put a traditional breakfast into a new category of delicious. If you're only in town for a few days, be sure to try the pannukakku or their pancakes...unlike any you'll have ever again. A great local place that never gets it wrong. Lunch is great, too!

“Pasty paradise”
Reviewed September 25, 2012

If you want to get a first rate pasty, go here! Get a taste of a UP tradition. We've tried some other pasties, but always love the ones we get here. Didn't try other menu items on our visit. Located downtown near the water.

“find some place else if you want good food”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

Like another reviewer said, nothing terrible, but nothing special. I don't feel I got my money's worth with the veggieburger, the atmosphere was unremarkable and the booths need new reupholstering--and by the way, saying it had good Finnish specialties is not a selling point--not one of the world's best cuisines.
