The bountifullest breakfasts


Affordable breakfast places

Amidst the bustle of the main street (Hämeenkatu 26), Pub Simon offers a handy breakfast every morning between 9 am and 12 pm including coffee/tea, egg, toast, pickled cucumber, juice and fruit.

Spot a local

If you like to taste the local life, you should head towards the Market Hall (Kauppahalli) for a breakfast, where you can find many cafés. While enjoying your brekkie – maybe some oatmeal – you get a glimpse of the local atmosphere, on the corridors of the 100 year-old indoor market. If you want a deluxe breakfast, head to restaurant 4 vuodenaikaa!
