Cafe Torpanranta

muncca

Munkkiniemessä sijaitseva Cafe Torpanranta on yksi niitä mukavia kahviloita, joka sijaitsee juuri sopivan matkan päässä, että sinne on mukava mennä taukoilemaan ja lämmittelemään talvella ulkoillessa alueella.

Cafe Torpanranta is a nice place to visit when moving about in the Munkkiniemi region of Helsinki. I often visit it in the winter to get a warm drink and let my body warm before venturing onwards in the freezing air.

Torpanrannan edustalla on matonpesupaikka vielä, mutta senkin aika lienee siirtyä lähitulevaisuudessa historiaan.

Flash back in time, there is still a place for washing mats outside the cafe. As regulations get stricter these are slowly but inevitably disappearing.

Chailatte (vähän kuin lattekahvi mutta teetä) ja kaakao lämmittivät kylmettyneitä kulkijoita..

Chailatte, a specialty of the cafe and a regular hot chocolate warmed up the frozen visitors..

and the meat pies gave up their warm energy.
