Käyn täällä silloin tällöin ja aina on valinnan vaikeus, sillä tiski on pullollaan toinen toistaan herkullisemman näköisiä leivoksia ja kakkuja.

A very positive experience indeed. Great pies, cakes and pastries. Good quality on tea and coffee. Excellent price/quality ratio. Centrally located in a new building, nice decor. Warmly recommended for a break in the center of Lappeenranta.

Good choice of cake and sweets. I chose the Tiramisu, which was amazing. Nice, fresh tea available and you can choose between a small or big cup of tea.

Place is great to have some cake, as they are not that expencive comparing to quality of it. Only bad thing about this place is hardness to find place to sit on winter, as on summer they have additional terrace outside.
