A coffee date

16 June 2011

Yesterday we had a coffee date at a cafe that has just arrived to my hometown. This little town has been waiting for a cafe like this for a looooong time! Something nice and relaxed... something that doesn't involve petrol. When I was a teenager we'd hangout at the local petrol station, because that I was the only place that was open after 5 PM and served coffee. Oh the bliss! :D So you can imagine this new cafe Valkoinen Puu (in English White Tree) is exactly what this town needs. I didn't have my camera with me so I'm sharing some of the photos from their Facebook page. I love the light and airy rooms, the touch of vintage in the decor and the pretty gift boutique. I'm definitely making this adorable place my must-go-visit-place every time I'm here visiting mum. xxx mervi

We are planning a little summer vacation tour on the east coast of Finland and your post made me add Kauhajoki and the Valkoinen Puu coffee shop to our tour map. Thanks, Mervi, for the excellent tip!

Mervi, I kid you not, this is exactly the kind of design I have always imagined I'd have for my little vintage cafe I've always dreamed of having one day. I can imagine some old scratchy records playing in the background...besides the amazingly perfect counter with the pedestal bell jars, my favorite detail is the tilted "open" sign in the window. Just perfect.
