The founder of Finnish Bistro, who moved to the United States from Finland decades ago, passed the torch in 2013 to a new owner, Sandra Weise. With the same care for authenticity that the restaurant’s founder brought to bear, Sandra curates a menu full of fresh fish, traditional lefse, and Finnish-style baked goods—as well as sundry continental, European offerings. A robust selection of traditional delights includes pickled herring, beets, and cucumbers, as well as smoked salmon, salami, and spicy reindeer sausage. In Fall of 2016 Finnish Bistro is expanding into offering a full service coffee bar with locally roasted coffee, smoothies, cold press, and artic mixers completing the beverage list, along with a great assortment of new wines and craft beers.
Patrons can peruse fresh-baked goods on display in glass cases, ranging from the familiar—donuts—to the more unique—their signature almond kringlers, pulla french toast, and gluten-free flourless tortes. When the weather is nice, guests can sit outside to enjoy Finnish eats and listen to the wind whisper about its recent trip to Europe.
