Breakfast in bed

Gathering around the breakfast table

What better way to begin a beautiful day than by enjoying a delicious breakfast?

In Finland, breakfast time is filled with wonderful flavours and natural ingredients. Enjoying a hearty breakfast offers a moment's pause before the hustle and bustle of the day and keeps you full well into lunchtime.

Coffee and tea are the staples of breakfast and Finns love their warm drinks in the morning. A steaming cup of freshly brewed coffee or tea is both comforting and energising. The scent of coffee lingering in the air wakes up the rest of the family and invites everyone to gather around the table.

Finnish breakfast often consists of open sandwiches, porridge, dairy products, and fresh fruit and berries. Rye bread is common in many Finnish homes, as are Karelian pasties. They are rye-crusted pasties filled with rice or mashed potato that are often served with munavoi, butter mixed with chopped hard-boiled eggs and seasoned with salt.

Summer in Finland might be short, but its flavours last all year round. Many Finns still pick their own berries for the freezer or boil seasonal fruit into jam. Bilberries, lingonberries, raspberries, and strawberries are a staple in many Finnish homes and give an energising boost to mornings everywhere.

Although breakfast is everyday routine, it also has a place in Finnish celebrations. Christmas Eve morning is welcomed with rice porridge and birthdays often begin with enjoying breakfast together. In May, mothers across the country pretend to be asleep while the rest of the family prepares breakfast for them – a beautiful start to a beautiful day.
