Really a good surprise. Very nice, well decorated and cozy place near the lake. The cakes are very tasty and was really impressed with the size of the slices, really big! Very good prices as well. Will be back for sure! Highly recommend.

Just love the old railway station. Nice atmosphere, beautiful location next to lake Vesijärvi. Everything home baked, croissants filled with cheese and cakes - excellent!

It is a great place for a hot cup of coffee after a walk by the lake. The personnel were helpful and polite. The decoration was great, so was the cinnamon cookie.

A very charming Café in the small harbour. The normal coffee was good as was also the large cinnamon buns. They didn't seem to have a proper Espresso machine which I thought was strange for a popular place like this.

This place is a must if you visit Lahti harbour. You get excellent coffee, very good pastries, uplifting atmosphere and the views to the lake Vesijärvi. It's a good place to start the day, meet friends or family, hangout in the afternoon with a good book and a coffee etc.

The café is located in Lahti Harbour. A good place for the summer to discuss and make plans. Lake View gives space to think. The port has a peaceful atmosphere. The cafe is really delicious pastries and good coffee and tea supply.

Savory pastries like cheese horn are big and tasty. Do not eat alone... its big and full of "white water skier" cheese. Summer terrace overlooking the lake is exquisite.

This very nice and cosy cafe is situated in old Railway station house by an excellent lakeside in Vesijärvi harbour in Lahti. They bake all homemade cakes, tasty buns and other pasteries in their own kitchen, so the tempting aroma welcomes you at the door to welcome. There is also large outdoor Terrace. This is a place where excellent views,... More
