Summer State of Mind

Yesterday we hosted the confirmation reception of a very handsome young man and it was a really wonderful event with great guests, speeches and even live violin music! After the event we did a little bit of organizing to give the cafe a new Summer look.

We also kicked off our easy-going Summer cafe opening hours, Tuesday to Friday open 10am until 4pm and on Saturdays we will still serve our deluxe brunch but be sure to reserve your table in advance!

Unfortunately my camera broke about a week ago, and mobile phone picture quality just isn't up to the standard I'd like to keep (as you can tell from the photo above!), so like our little cafe also our little blog will hibernate over the following Summer months. So stop reading and go outside and enjoy the light and sun :)

Take care!

Top Models on a Leash

We had a photoshoot for a SoffaTV show "Huippumalli narussa" at the cafe last Sunday and I snapped a few "making of" pictures for y'all. Will let you know when the show comes out!

Enjoy an evening of diverse ethnic culture and music this Friday (tomorrow!) with Smalltribe as they perform songs at the cafe in French, Spanish and English. Smalltribe is a duo composed by Yovan Nagwetch (Native French Canadian) & Carlos Alexis (Nicaraguan) who play native folk & light acoustic rock music. They sing about the life of their people as well as the reality of their countries.

Kallio is blooming with activities once again for the Kallio Kukkii festival which kick starts tomorrow! Playtime for Smalltribe will be at about 7pm so come sit down for a cup of your choice of refreshment and enjoy :)

Yesterday a very talkative little girl at the cafe told me her favorite number is seven even though she's turning six in just a few days. Turns out we have the same birthday but I didn't dare tell her I'm happy to be dropping off the number 7 from my age because I much prefer the number 8.

She drew her family in our guest book and decided she's almost 6 years old so it's OK for her to write that she's 6yrs. I hope you have a great party and despite your worries, I'm sure your jeans will still fit tomorrow, even though you'll be older then :)
