Lunch in Finland (Lunch and Bread)
During the summer of 2009 - with the help of family
and friends I started my lunch and bread restaurant in
the center of Kangasniemi. Besides lunches, I serve
coffee with typical home baked Finnish buns, pastries and a variety
of breads. The Finnish pulla, is a sweet bun flavored
with cardamom - great with a cup of espresso or
cappuccino - all home-baked.
Also visit our
lunch gallery with continuous exhibitions of local artists.
It is my aim to provide a casual, warm environment,
delicious food and excellent service at a reasonable cost.
It is my goal to have every lunch be a celebration of food -
every coffee table a typical Finnish one. The first period I
am not planning to serve dinners, but to specialize in
lunches and coffee with various delicious typical Finnish
things, which are served with it, and everything from
breakfast to the late afternoon.
I am open from Monday through Friday from 9AM to 4PM
and, during the summer period, on Saturday from 8AM to 2PM
Lunch is served from 10 in the morning.
And - by the way, I speak Finnish, German and French -
in case we need to communicate; I won't bother you at your
table, although we Finns love to talk.

In the early 19th century, coffee had established itself
as the favorite drink of the Finnish upper-class,
despite bans. From there, it slowly spread to the common
people. Together with the coffee, people enjoyed rusks,
pulla, twist buns and biscuits, but many sorts of sweet
pastries were also baked at home.
