THE MOST LOCAL FOOD YOU COULD FIND

We prepare almost all our food ourselves. There are two exceptions: Riitta lost the rye bread starter when she was a young girl and she went to wash her mother-in-law’s dough tin. Tiina Laamanen from Juva makes such delicious Karelian pasties that we buy them from her as raw frozen products.

We get most of the ingredients from our vegetable and berry gardens, the forest, the lake and the henhouse (quail eggs). Many of the recipes were developed in-house, passed down through the generations or picked up from people who do things much better, such as the Wolkoff restaurant in Lappeenranta.

EXAMPLES OF OUR MENU AND MORE BESIDES:

  • The barn café also offers gluten-free and vegan alternatives
  • Nestori’s burgers
  • Nestori and Maija’s hot sandwiches
  • Hearty salads
  • Soups at lunchtime in July
  • Speciality coffees
  • Strawberries from our own strawberry patch
  • Meals for groups by reservation

The barn café is a former barn

Nestori’s barn café operates out of an old stone barn with natural stone walls 120 cm thick, which have stood strong all these years. The barn was completed in 1953, and it took 2 years to build the walls. The builders did not have to go far to find stones. In this part of Savo, the ground is full of stones of all sizes.

At the most, the barn housed 3 cows, a pig, and a few sheep and chickens. The last cow was sent to slaughter in 1982. The building was converted into a café in 2014.
