“Distance: 550 metres. Roka serves bistro-style & street food made from the finest ingredients, chock-full of authentic & original flavors and accompanied with refreshing and sophisticated beverages. Strongly influenced by the United States, Italy and Finnish Lapland - Roka provides a friendly, personal and intimate 25-seater, neighborhood restaurant. My go-to place for a no-frill dinner.”

Hostel
“Distance: 550 metres. Café & Bar Koti (koti is Finnish word for home) offers great coffee and pastries in an easygoing atmosphere. Breakfast is also served daily and lunch during the weekdays. During the nights the space turns into a bar. In summer, they have a lovely roof-top terrace bar. The rather bohemian atmosphere is quite contradictory to the history of the building as it used to be a bank.”
