Quality and traditions since the 1800s

Otto Fridolf Lönnberg The history of the bakery, Konditoria-Café Vaherkylä, dates back to the 1800s to St. Petersburg. Otto Fridolf Lönnberg started his own bakery business there in 1898.
Since the very beginning, Otto Fridolf wanted to make the best possible pastries using the very best raw materials. He served his apprenticeship in St. Petersburg, where the best skills in the field of confectionary products' production could be found at the time.
At the beginning of the 1960s, his son, Otto Torsten, moved the bakery from Orimattila to Loviisa - to the Queen's town. Otto Kalevi Vaherkylä continues to carry out his bakery operationshere - now in the third generation.
Otto Kalevi's daughter, Pirjo, continued the café operations in Loviisa with her husband, Håkan, who was a master confectioner. At their lead, the confectionary was developed in a determined manner to meet the latest trends of the industry. At the same time, the facilities expanded and even more customers could enjoy the delicious treats prepared by Håkan. In 1999, Konditoria-Café Vaherkylä was invited to become a member of the Hyvä Konditoria (Good Confectionary) chain.
A new development phase began in 2017, when Konditoria-Café Vaherkylä-Ek got a new investor. In 2018 a new store was opened in Helsinki. Futhermore, there are plans for Vaherkylä to be exported to China and other countries.
Konditoria-Café Vaherkylä stood out due to its long history and high quality. The traditions of Konditoria-Café Vaherkylä continue under the management of the new owner and provide an international touch to the operations of the confectionary in Loviisa.
