Granary café

Anjala Youth Centre

The granary café is open in summer, from mid-May to the end of August.

Our café is famous for our freshly-ground coffee and delicious ice cream. The cakes are baked just a stone’s throw away, in the kitchen at Anjala Youth Centre. We also sell local produce. A traditional speciality from the Kymi Valley, a sort of traditional pizza called a läppä, has been one of our most popular dishes for several summers.

The granary was built for the manor in 1842, the same year as the stone barn opposite it. The two-storey granary had a clock tower, so the peasants could see what time it was. The stone granary still served as a grain storehouse for the manor’s tenants in the twentieth century. In 1958 it was turned into a café. Over the years, it has been run by a series of owners.

In 1977, a small exhibition space opened on the upper floor. Today, Ankkapurha Art Exhibitions are a showcase for local artists. The art exhibitions are hosted in partnership with the Kouvola artists’ association, Kouta ry.
