Had a really nice lunch combo here, goat cheese and a chocolate waffel. Both of them tasted good and looked cute. Was little bit disappointed with the tea selection though. Hope they have improved when visiting Kokkola next time.

A nice summer cafe in the museum block. Cafe serves delicious waffels with different stuffings. There's a big gardenl-like open air space with tables and chairs, which is nice because the interior is quite small with only few tables.

Unique place which serves wafers with different salty and sweet toppings. Great place to have a snack / lunch in the unique atmosphere of Kokkolas old city (Neristan).

This is a cozy and beautiful summer cafe. Coffee is good and the speciality, the waffles or pancakes, are really delicious. The museum shop and its quality products adds to the attraction of this place.

Vohvelikahvila is no restaurant. You can get the Finnish vohveli (a kind of waffle) and salads. There is no service per se but people are very friendly. The food is nice, ok. clean and basic. Prices are reasonable. It is a good place for a lunch or an afternoon treat.

Really popular in the summer, especially on a hot day, so be prepared to wait a little. The sweet waffles are sooo good, but my favourite is the smoked salmon. Also nice and fresh salads. The museum yard is very pretty and nice to visit for the whole family. Also, you get a discount from the admission if you have... More

Cosy cafe in beautiful old building. I had salmon waffel (pancake) and apple cake - both very nice. Could do with a little more staff?
