Niittykahvila Café's easy going atmosphere, the irresistible smell of fresh campfire coffee and pancakes and the play of the sun on your skin come together to invite you into their magical company. Time and place lose their importance. A sense of here and now pervades the air. The fragrance of wood smoke. The caress of hay around your feet. Pancakes with house marmelade or with vegetable filling or with reindeer-ham filling are great choise to fullfill your stomac's calling. Some delicious local snacks are also available. You can taste house Rowan leaf juice and other local sense of tastes. Afterwards, let's have a nap in hay barn!

Good to know
The environment in the field, in the middle of the nature, is present in our everyday work. It gives us boundary condition to honor and protect it and it`s a source of endless inspiration.We are one little part of a wonderful ecosystem. Cherishing that precious life, is our main principle.
We help to progress of local economy by selling local handicrafts and nature and organic products. The carbon footprint of our food, based on old haymaking tradition,is small. All ingredients comes from neighborhood and in summertime even from the field around the cottage.All our dishes are recycled, we use wooden salad plates and our pancakes are served on a shingle. Coffee spoons are made of the willow, which grows on the field. We don´t use any plastic in service process.
These little things shows us that we are in the right way. We continue expanding the Sustainable process by being involved in Visit Finland´s Sustainable Travel program. As a credit and appreciation of the work we done in the field of Sustainable development, Visit Finland has granted us Sustainable Travel -badge in June 2020.
