Restaurant Café Čaiju

Café and restaurant Čaiju is an important meeting place in the middle of Inari, offering delicious lunch and great coffee experiences. Its name derives from a Skolt Sámi word meaning tea. 

Čaiju offers delicious organic specialty coffees with a northern twist, for example chaga mushroom latte exclusively from Čaiju.  You can also find a large variety of organic teas. Fresh pastries are baked daily and you can experience a Nordic coffee moment over organic coffee or tea and a freshly baked pastry.
