    Nakkeja, pikkulämpimiä - Nakki Kustaa

    by HORSCHECK Updated Oct 8, 2011

    Nakkeja, pikkul��mpimi�� - Nakki Kursta
    1 more image

    In Porvoo we were lucky enough to meet a famous local VT member, who showed us around and even led us to the hidden gems of the local cuisine.

    "Nakkeja, pikkulämpimiä" is a Snack Bar, which is known as "Nakki Kustaa" among the locals.

    I ordered a Lihapiirakka which is a warm minced meat pie with homemade mustard.

    My Finnish VT friends had Nakkis (Nakkimakkara), which are Frankfurter Sausages with ketchup and homemade mustard.

    UPDATE 2011: Unfortunately Nakki Kustaa has closed down now.

    The Restaurant Ship Glückauf is a steam sailing ship which was built at the end of the 19th century. You can enjoy all sorts of tasty meals on the ship or in an open air pavillion next to the ship. On sunny summer afternoons the deck is mainly used as a cafe, where you can relax with a drink while watching the world go by. It is opened every day in summer, but only on request during the rest of the year.

    Wanha Laamanni

    This is really unique restaurant.
    The food they do is mixed (Mediterranean, French, Finnish food and some Eastern influence...). It is quite expensive but highly appreciated. This restaurant was chosen among the best restaurants in Finland

    Normally, at summer time I enjoy a cider on their terrace, which has a beautiful view down to the river Porvoo (as the restaurant is situated up on a hill). Don't miss the view! At winter you'll have to enjoy your dinner inside tho'.

    Favorite Dish: I have eaten a fish dish there and it was delicious!

    Restaurant Hanna Maria

    If you are looking for good food and good value for money, this is your place.
    It is perfectly located in the Old Town and it has around 60 seats. It is pretty busy place during lunch hour and both local and tourists have found the place. Definately good value for the money!

    They do lunches and have a menu. It is not a gourmet-place but the food is home made kind of food. They serve typical Finnish home made food for lunch. You may choose from their menu also, like escalope of veal!

    The lunch prices are from six to ten euros.
    Open 1.5.-31.8. :
    Mon-Sat 8am-5pm, Sun 10am-5pm

    At other times:
    Mon-Sat 8am-4pm, Sun 10am-4pm

    It would be hard to find better value for your money in Porvoo. ;-) My favorite place when I'm hungry and want to eat out.

    Favorite Dish: Meatballs with smashed potatoes.

    by ZenLady34 Updated Nov 8, 2004

    Porvoon Paahtimo at right with the boat terrace!
    1 more image

    Porvoon Paahtimo is located by the river and next to the bridge. You can not miss the red tile, four floor storehouse when entering to Porvoo from Helsinki.

    Summer or winter this bar&cafe has a special athmosphere! It is not a typical Finnish style cafe but it is worth a visit if you fancy a cappuccino, cafe latte, beer or a cider.

    Favorite Dish: At winter my favorite drink is a hot chocolate with 2cl mint liqueur. It is so nice to get out of the cold weather and darkness into a this Warm, cosy, red tile bar&cafe!

    At summer time (may - august) my choise is a cider on the terrace or on their "terrace boat" .

    They do not serve food... sandwiches but no food.

    Delicious cakes, sandwiches...
    The "cafe" is in an old wooden house, which makes the ambience special. It is crowded on especially on winter Sundays. At summertime it is very popular also.

    At summer time they have a terrace outside and it is at the back yard in between the old wooden houses.

    Their webpages are only in Finnish for the time being but maybe you want to check them out? Therefore their webaddress is here, for you.

    Favorite Dish: Any cake they have! As they all, to my understanding, are made there.

    I must admit that we didn't eat here, but at least we had a close look at the restaurant from the inside and outside.

    The restaurant building is an old wooden log house from the 18th century, therefore the rooms offer a special historical atmosphere. In summer time the terrace invites people for a rest.

    Great esplanade and very good beer :)

    I'm afraid I have some difficulty in writing down the name of this place, but is very easy to find. It’s located right on the river Bank, and has an esplanade inside
    The river, on a transformed boat. I only had a beer, to rest a little and catch some sun.

    Delicious cakes!
    2 more images

    The restaurant athmosphere is classy and like no other in Porvoo. The building is jugent style and so the rooms are spacious and high.

    Some days they provide live piano music (a student playing).

    Favorite Dish: Cafe Cabriole provides lunches (very delicious) Mon-Fri between 10.30-13.00 from a buffet table with economical price, if I remember correctly it is 7 euros per person... worth every cent!

    Their cakes are most delicious ones. They have different big sortiment, like cheese cakes, berry cakes etc.
    They also do salty pies (comes with sallad) and filled rolls.
    Cappuccinos, cafe lattes, finnish coffee, espressos, wine, liquires, cognac etc.

    I can highly recommend this classy cafeteria!
