Eat & Drink
Our eastern archipelago offers Scandinavian delicacies for all! Freshly smoked fish and other local delicacies are an integral part of the local diet, but this is also the place to find the world’s only proper ‘posso’ doughnuts and ‘sunkki’ which is a savory doughnut, as well as other delicious bakery products and local small brewery products. The sheer variety of restaurants in the Kotka-Hamina region is captivating – a combination of historical feeling, fresh local raw materials, and flavors from near and far.
Make yourself comfortable at any of our cozy restaurants and have a delicious meal to top off your day. Whether you are looking for a quick bite of pizza or a full evening with fine dining glamour, you’ll find it here.
There’s no other nation in the world that drinks as much coffee as the Finns. And naturally you need something good to go with it. Try Finnish ‘pulla’ that resembles Danish pastry, or ‘munkki’ a bit like a doughnut. In the southeast we also have a ‘posso’, a sort of a ‘munkki’ and a ‘sunkki’ that is a savory ‘munkki’. Confused? Come and try them yourself!
