Kuokkalan kartano - the Kuokkala mansion

A repost from last summer - still a great place for an afternoon coffee.

A great place to have a coffee and cake. The selection of cakes and pastries was almost too much to handle. We each had coffee and a slice of cake and the bill came to 11 €. Not bad considering that table service is included and you get to enjoy a pretty swanky atmosphere as you sip your coffee.

Chocolate cake and Tosca cake along with some pretty decent coffee.

We enjoyed our coffee on the porch, but we could have also been in this elegant little salon.

Kuokkalan Kartano
was designed by Wiwi Lönn and built in 1904. The cafe and upstairs art display are open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m and weekends from noon until 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays.
