This cafe was a nice surprise, had a good vibe on it! Good cappuccino with almond milk. I would have liked something healthier vegan options for breakfast, but I do know that breakfast culture isn't yet strong in Finland. Maybe this cafe could be a leader on it? My mum and sister had coffees and cakes, they loved them! Lots... More

The first good thing to discover was to find Houkutus open before 9am on a Saturday morning. The place was pretty much empty and no wonder the free WiFi worked really good. They serve traditional Finnish President coffee, which was quite good. A lot of cakes and other sweet goodies but no real choices for a good and healthy breakfast.... More

Houkutus is situated in Kuopio´s city center but still in its very own corner. It is quiet spacious and always bustling with satisfied customers. I have been there a couple of times and always enjoy sitting, drinking coffee and eating delicious cakes and chatting with friends. Staff is nice and quick. Cakes and coffee have a decent price. In summers... More

Houkutus offers a wide selection of tasty cakes, pies, and drinks which you can enjoy on the spot or take with you. We bought one sandwich cake and one raspberry cake to a graduation party and our guest loved them. Very nicely decorated cakes and a taste like heaven :)

It is price worth and good quality to take a hot lunch at Houkutus. Located in the main shopping street of Kuopio opposite of H&M. The self-service restaurant offers you a wide variety. The special dishes (soups, salads) are reasonable priced(between EUR 7 en EUR 10). Many staff members, young girls and working quite inefficient. Toilets are clean. Internet didn't... More

The most difficult part of the visit is to choose between many delicious and wonderful looking treats: tarts, cakes and buns. Maybe you have to share them with your friend to be able to taste more. Atmosphere is nice, decoration as well, and many people pop in to read book, have meeting and meet friends. Cozy place with good service.... More

Popular cafe in the centre of Kuopio. Lots of different kind of cakes and other baked goods, good coffees and teas. I often take a lunch here, really delicious, fresh and good quality salads. Little bit expensive, but you know always what you will get!

We've chosen this cozy place for a warmup at a rainy day. The staff is very friendly and kids are also warmly welcomed (we're there with our 1 year old). They heated up a small portion of rigatoni from their pasta salad for our baby and we enjoyed a tasty sandwich with ham. The cappuchino also tasted great and so... More

One of the best dessert places in Kuopio, also with great salad place for lunch. Quite expensive place though, but good and comfy place :)
