Oulu is agog with different kinds of cafés, bistros, and pubs, each with a unique style. The best way to become acquainted with this world is by joining it with a group of friends to sit and spend some time.

Even though several courses are strongly content based, students can find one which offers a nice change and brings fun into their studies.

When you are thinking where to spend time with friends, it is worthwhile to keep in mind that you want a place where everyone will enjoy being and how that communal time is spent. It is easy to stop by for a coffee or lunch, while in the evening for a cold one.

Thinking about a moment of enjoyment

Morning coffee, lunch, or a relaxing evening is possible in the atmospheric Coffee House on Rotuaari. The coffee selection is broad, several tea selections are available as well as sweet and savory snacks. On the soft couches in Coffee House time goes by quickly.

One of the most popular cafés is Cafe Bisketti on Rotuaari and you can’t always find a free table because of that. A hundred different selections are available from its bakery daily.

Bar Bee can be found in the same space. It is a smokeless sitting room bar. The movie themed is easy to move to for a beer after a sticky bun.
