This is The place to meet your friend or just pop in to have a cup of coffee or tea in the heart of Kuopio city. Kahvila Kaneli has an atmosphere which is wrapping you to warm and cozy, timeless being. Old furniture and a bit dimmed lights help in this. Good service and pasties.

Ooh, the cakes, pies and different flavours of coffee are just overwhelming and my choice, the pecan chocolate pie was spot on with a nice cup of cappuccino. Although there were a lot of people, we got seated instantly and our orders came fairly quickly. The atmosphere is quite unique and you can just sit and let your eyes wander... More

Visited this cafe solo during lunch time. It wasn't busy, the place is more about coffee and atmosphere than about food. They served all sorts of cakes and pies. Unfortunately only cakes had dairy free options. Had a slice of cake with lingonberries and soya vanilla sauce but to be honest it didn't taste much. Coffee was good, and my... More

I really like the reception and service from the beautiful lady there. If you want to enjoy either coffee or other foods in a peace environment in front of beautiful garden and river you should choose this place.

My friend and I spend a lovely couple of hours hiding from the ugly weather in this lovely cafe. Service was friendly and fast and the food excellent. I could imagine this for a good place for a date. Kahvila Kaneli is packed with interesting decor that would give good topics when at loss in discussion.

I came to kuopio to visit a friend and while exploring the area I ran across this little gem. It's a cute little coffee shop that serves pastries, cakes and quiches. All kinds of quiches! Salmon, ham, feta and mushroom were my choices and since I'm in Finland I went with the salmon. The taste is wonderful but I prefer... More

Sweet little café in the heart of Kuopio. Cosy and unique decoration with smooth jazz playing in the background. Good selection of hot drinks and delicious looking cakes and pies. Yes it's more pricey than chain cafés, but it's unique and peaceful. Sounds like a great deal to me!

The only negative aspect in this place is it closes down rather early at 5 pm I think. Other than that I find this the nicest cafeteria around in Kuopio. I mean a place where you can have a delicious cake, a coffee or tee and it is not a bar where you meet drunk people :-) It's not a... More

Kaneli is a very cozy cafe in the city centre of Kuopio, between Intro and Foodi. It's a little bit pricey, but it's worth visiting, because the cafe is very uniquely furnished, and there is a lot of rooms and details to see. On summer time, there is also a cute little terrace at the backyard.
