Café Kahvila Kariranta is open all year round, from 9 am to 8 pm in the summer, and from 9 am to 6 pm in winter.
We take pride in our wide range of delicious, home-made products, including traditional buns, legendary cheese croissants, sweet and savoury pies, and mouth-watering cakes and cookies – also as gluten-free options. You can also buy our products to take home.
Our beautifully decorated cafe building seats 50 guests. In the summer, we have an outdoor terrace facing Vesijärvi, seating about 100 guests.
Ulpukka craft boutique, located next to our café in the same building, offers unique products from the skilful hands of local artisans to buy as presents or for yourself. The café has an art exhibition that changes each month.
