This place is worth a visit even if it is a bit of track. It's a tiny rather local café. The food is simple but definitely homemade and delicious. They have different sandwiches sweet and salty/ met and fish as well as vegetarian warm dishes such as soup or salad. Also they offer a choice of pastry. The coffee was... More

I took cappucino and normal coffee, cappucino was bitter and cream on the top was burned too dark. We ate blueberry cheesecake and that was ok, nothing special. Dessert menu was also quite small, four different cakes, two of them were cheesecakes. We came in about 10pm at Saturday night and there wasn't too many customers.

Tin Tin Tango is a nice local place. We arrived for lunch and had a delicious Thai soup. And yes, the back room also allows people to do laundry.

This is a relaxed cafe frequented by locals - it is pleasant, the food is good and the staff helpful and very nice to speak to. If you are in the area and looking for a simple straight forward breakfast or lunch in a relaxed atmosphere then you should strongly consider spending a few moments there to relax.

I have no idea why there is a washer and dryer in the back room of this lovely cafe, but it does add an eccentric touch. Quiet cafe, excellent espresso macchiato and decent selection of pastries. I've also observed people having full breakfasts (eggs, fruit, etc.) and all that looks good. The staff is friendly. The overall vibe is pleasant.... More

This cafe came recommended by our host for breakfast, so we went there the first morning. The interior is nice, with Tin Tin decorations everywhere. The breakfast itself was a lot less copious then the Finnish description led to believe (I dont know Finnish), but was quite good. The coffee is typical Finnish, so I recommend a cappucino or hot...

I was looking for a reasonable place to do some laundry and came across this place. Great bistro type food and a washer/dryer in the back. Do laundry and eat breakfast or lunch. Laundry will cost you 4€ wash, 2€ dry and 1.30€ to use their soap. Pretty good deal around here. Drawbacks, only one washer/dryer and they take reservations... More
