Pearl Cafe.

Did anyone actually think you’d get through this massive Porvoo saga without this post?

Have I ever bragged about the cake counter before? I know it’s not all vegan but… just look at those colours and textures!

The tea was served in these lovely cups (notice the star and crescent moon shapes in the tea strainer). And on the left you can see an actual, real, heavy-duty meringue.

Even though the day of this visit was a bit on the cloudy and rainy side, the temperature was still high enough to enjoy the last moments of summer breeze in the garden of the cafe.

Yours,
