Last week Nina began to host Villipuutarha's knitting evenings, which have already been booked full! We cannot wait to see what different kinds of knits and projects emerge from these evenings!

Soups have arrived!

Starting tomorrow we will be spoiling you with delicious vegetarian soups from 11-15 every weekday! Lunch time soup meals include a cup of our dark-roast coffee or tea, served with a piece of Petri Sirén's smoked salt dark chocolate - sounds quirky but it is exquisite. 

Later on in the week I will tell you more about our extremely talented new chef, stay tuned! 

Kiima-levyt @ our shop!

Ever notice that our little cafe is also a little shop? Thus far almost all of our furniture, chandelier and little decorative items have been for sale, although not specifically marked as for-sale items. During the next few weeks and months we will be significantly adding items to our shop and I will be presenting them here on our blog.

And here's my first little intro!

Last week a stack of cds from Kiima-levyt appeared in our shop. Kiima-levyt is a small independent record company which aims to increase the well-being of our community with high-quality music, which is an objective we can relate to! Each record can be yours for the price of 18 euro. If you want to know more about a specific album ask Nina or anyone else working at the time. If you want to listen to the cd before buying we can play a few tracks for you at the cafe. Happy listening!

Our squirrel got a new home last week, and take a look at what a beautiful new home he got! His new home also came with a squirrel friend.

The new owner of the squirrel also brought a mesmerising picture to the cafe!!:

Vegan chocolate!

Chocolates have arrived! In addition to some of the favorites we have three new flavours - including VEGAN chocolates! Come taste Petri Sirén's vegan chili chocolate or (and :)) his vegan coconut cream chocolate - delicious!

As an end of summer special we've been giving away sun flowers to our customers this week. We only had four left when I left the cafe today, so the last ones will go pretty fast tomorrow I suspect!

With the end of the summer season at Villipuutarha we are re-introducing lunch time soups to our menu, will update you more on Monday! Stay tuned!
