“Cheap, yet yummy”
Reviewed September 18, 2007

We asked the gals at the hotel where to go for breakfast and they didn't hesitate even a second--SUMI! they told us (I don't know whether it's the correct pronunciation for "Suomi," but that's what they call it up there--SOOMI.) The atmosphere in the place is minimal--it is, essentially, a little breakfast diner (if such a thing exists), and is very cheap, and looks it. The service was fine, though, and the quality of the food was--yum!!! We had the Nisu toast (my boyfriend qualified it as "best toast he'd ever had") and the Panukakku (which is essentially a big flan-type pancake, and is also very good with hot raspberry sauce). I think our total bill was something like $13, and we were in and out within half an hour.

“Love this one...”
Reviewed October 10, 2006

Down to earth, affordable restaurant.. Good food, the Nisu is wonderful (Finnish bread) especially as French toast.

Don't worry if you have to wait a few minutes. We ate breakfast there 3 days in a row last week and it was always crowded...

Friendly wait-staff too. A must stop in Houghton.
