The best lunch in town - Kulttuuriravintola Ylä-Ruth
Located next to the University of Jyväskylä campus library, Kulttuuriravintola Ylä-Ruth is an establishment with a lot to offer - drink, colorful clientele, and musical instruments if you feel the urge to play a tune (including guitars, a piano, and an acoustic bass).
Ylä-Ruth also happens to have the best lunch deal in town. For under 6 euros you will find yourself with a big bowl of soup, bread and salad, a non-alcoholic beverage, and a cup of coffee. Friendly and competent table service is part of the deal.
The lunch at Ylä-Ruth may not be as economical as a meal at one of the on-campus cafeterias (if you have a student card) but chances are, at Ylä-Ruth you will never have to wait in line for 20 minutes to get some food. The table service is another touch that you won't find in any of the campus cafeterias.
In the above photo - jauhelihakeitto (ground beef soup), rye bread, salad, and a nice cold glass of piimä (buttermilk).
