In the Old Town of Porvoo there is a red brick storehouse, built in 1902 by Oskar Simolin. The storehouse was a warehouse for Simolin’s department store. Throughout the decades different items have been stored in the building, for example coffee. This might be one of the reasons why Bar & Café Porvoon Paahtimo is located in the very same building.
The building is situated on the riverbank, and you can reach it by boat during the summer. In the summer there is also a barge moored next to the terrace. The deck is the perfect place to be if you want to enjoy the fabulous view of the famous riverside of Porvoo.
Inside the storehouse there are old beams in the ceiling and thick red brick walls, which contribute to a peaceful and historical atmosphere. You can smell the scent of freshly roasted coffee and listen to the cheerful hum of conversation – welcome to Porvoon Paahtimo!
