Several wonderful cafes have opened their doors in Seinäjoki during the spring and summer. Each new cafe has its own unique features. However, a few things unite them all; in addition to coffee, you can get delicious pastries and you are warmly welcomed to each of them.
Valkoinen Puu is already known in Seinäjoki. It is especially known for its delicious cakes, that combine Finnish and American traditions. The café also has a good selection of gluten-free products.
But what’s new? First of all, the new cafe has plenty of space. A beautiful loft brings a lot of extra space. Huge windows rising from the floor to the ceiling open up a nice view to Lakeuden risti. The very central location of the cafe makes it easy to stop by after a movie night in cinema or before leaving to railway station. Also the shops of the city centre are nearby.
The style of the cafe is quite modern, yet cozy. It could also be described as scandinavian bohemian. The atmosphere is truly warm and welcoming. As a responsible company, Valkoinen puu brought a lot of the old furnitures to the new cafe instead of buying everything new. The front of the counter has an eye-catching honeycomb patterned wooden surface. The wooden surface is made from the old floor board of the Valkoinen Puu cafe in Kauhajoki.
The cafe now also offers artisan pizza. The pizzas in Jyväskylä’s cafe have received a lot of praise, so many customers have really been looking forward to tasting them as well. When the weather warms up, garden tables and chairs spread out on both sides of the Valkoinen Puu.
All in all, the new cafe space has brought a modern touch to the cafe and well needed additional space. Fortunately, some things do not change, such as the delicious taste of the pastries and the warm-hearted customer service!
Hanna & Kerttu
Hanna & Kerttu locates in the old premises of Valkoinen Puu, in Kalevankatu 11-13. The fresh pastries of the cafe are delivered streight from the bakery each morning.
The cafe also offers a soup lunch and versatile salads at lunchtime, as well as plenty of different salty products, such as sandwiches, pizza and Karelian pies. The sweet options, on the other hand, include a variety of fresh pastries, cakes, buns and cookies.
The charming smell of baked goods, cozy wooden surfaces, spring green tones, comfortable benches and happy customer service greets the visitors – The new premises are especially cozy and full of light. There is plenty of space and a sunny terrace.
Culture cafe Viia
Culture cafe Viia is a cozy cafe in Uppa, Seinäjoki. As the name suggests, Viia organizes various cultural events every week. On Thursdays in even-numbered weeks, Viia plays plant bingo. In this wonderfully innovative event, the first person to shout bingo over three rounds is rewarded with hose plant cutting. In odd-numbered weeks, Thursdays are spent reciting well-known and unknown as well as new and old poems. In addition, many other events are organized in the cafe.
The attempt of Culture cafe Viia is to keep the atmosphere of the cafe as homely as possible, and succeeded as well! In the lovely boho-style decorated cafe, you’ll be happy to sit around even longer.
You will also find delicious snacks in the cafe. There are sweet and salty pastries, such as cakes and sandwiches. A soup and salad lunch is also available on weekdays from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Experience the atmospheric Viia and curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea or share a piece of carrot cake with a friend!
Shop & cafe Ihana
Puoti & Kahvila Ihana, located right next to Viia on Koulukatu, offers pastries that melt in your mouth, as well as delightful chocolate confections, which you can enjoy on the spot or buy to take with you, for example as a gift or as a party favor.
In the same space with the cafe, there is a shop, where the products from all over Finland are on sale. So, while enjoying your coffee in the atmospheric cafe, you can admire the store shelves and the versatile selection of handicrafts.
Espresso House cafes are cozy places to stop by in the middle of the city’s best meeting places. In Seinäjoki, Espresso House is already familiar from Ideapark, but in the spring another cafe was opened to Epstori shopping mall. Now you may also enjoy your coffee outside, on the terrace. In the selection, you can find pastries, high-quality coffee and fresh salads and other snacks, for example, conveniently taken on the go.
“We employ passionate coffee professionals who all have the same goal; to offer the world’s best coffee enjoyment to our world’s best guests.”
The counter of Leipomo-café Kotikonnu, which operates in the same premises as flower store Flos, is covered with pastries of some kind. On Saturdays, you can treat yourself to the cafe’s delicious brunch. The cafe is located in Ruukintie 63.
