Kyyjärven Esso - The Esso Station in Kyyjärvi

The Kyyjärvi Esso is a true Finnish classic. Nowadays with obscenely huge and faceless ABC stations dominating the roadsides, little places with character like Kyyjärven Esso are getting harder and harder to find. I make it a point to stop at this great little place every chance I get. Coffee, daily lunch specials, clean restrooms, RAY slot machines - what else do you really need when making a pit stop?

This is where you will find it. In my opinion, well worth the stop.


  1. Seems it a cosy little place

  2. I live in a log house that Matti Perälä built around 1900.
