Café Meijerinliiteri is a unique, family owned summer café located in the heart of the beautiful Finnish Lakeland. We serve fresh coffee, mint tea, berry juices and homemade sweet and savory pastries.

The ingredients of our freshly baked slow-food delicacies are locally sourced, and all the recipes and flavors follow the rhythm of the seasons and the surrounding nature. Our seasonally varying selection includes pies, waffles, cakes and fresh homemade juices – all served in our beautiful summer garden.

Café Meijerinliiteri is not only a coffee shop, but also an interesting location in which to spend time and to see Finnish history and traditions. The Kokko homestead was founded at this very location centuries ago, and the recent owners, Juhani and Maija, have turned the residence into a place where everyone can enjoy the beauty of the Finnish country life.

In addition to sipping a coffee under the birch, one can visit the art gallery ”Galleria Jäähuone” or explore our second hand dress shop. There is also plenty of room for kids to gambol around.

During the summer season we organize concerts at our unique venue ”Jäähuone” (Iceroom). Concerts 2020:
