Yesterday I spent a day in Turku with my friend Karoliina. We had coffee at Cafe Art, lunch at Niska, coffee again at Fontana and went to the movies in the evening. I wasn’t back home in Helsinki until midnight, so I am a bit tired today.

Turku is such a nice city, I think it will always have a special place in my heart. I lived there for 5 years while I was studying Design and I still have some really close friends there. Turku also has some super cool cafes and restaurants, and thought I would share some with you πŸ™‚

Cafe Art
Probably my favorite Cafe in Turku, situated right next to the river. They have amazing pastries, cute atmosphere and art on the walls πŸ™‚ It is very popular so might have to stay in a queue for a while.

Fontana
Another Turku classic that I used to go very often when I lived there. You should try their yummy hot chocolate with marshmallows πŸ™‚

Tiirikkila
Cute cafe next to the river. They also serve lunch and dinner and some nights have live music.

Gaggui Kahvila
I have heard so much about this place and seen pictures of their amazing looking cakes in many places, but haven’t been there still myself. Gotta fix that next time πŸ™‚

TintΓ₯
Another Turku classic for me. They have great pizzas and yummy lunch options.

Niska
Delicious pizzas with an archipelago feel and local products. Book a table, they are very popular (even at lunch time yesterday they had to turn people away cause it was so full).

Kaskis
You need a table reservation for this small and super popular restaurant. This place is more fine dining, but definitely worth the splurge.

Nick’s Food Design
They have a really nice classic brunch πŸ™‚ It is a bit further away then the other places, but worth the walk.

And plenty, plenty more… if I would include all, this list would be way too long πŸ™‚
Have a relaxing Sunday!
