Welcome to Uksakka!

Welcome to Uksakka

Café Uksakka is our family’s lastborn, a cozy lunch café opened in December 2020 in the centre of Luosto. Uksakka is located in a blue house next to the K-Kauppa grocery store, opposite of the Ahvenlampi parking area. Uksakka offers delicious lunch and rooted reindeer meat from our own reindeer herd. A daily changing lunch with variety of salads and homemade bread is served from Mondays to Saturdays from 11:00 to 14:00.

Tasty burgers, reindeer kebab and warm bread are baked on the Uksakka grill. The list also includes salads and the best-known sautéed reindeer in the area. In addition to self-baked delicacies, the Café Uksakka’ s coffee vitrine includes products from a local bakery that are guaranteed to nourish the cravings for sweets or salty. Our selection also includes special coffees and lovely hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.  

After a day of skiing, you can stop by to read the day’s newspaper while enjoying bubbling or hot carnation juice – fortified or not in Uksakka’ s small, dim living room. We also have alcohol rights. In the small shop in Uksakka you can buy local handicrafts, art, natural products as well as meat from our reindeer farm and selection of reindeer meat products like smoked reindeer or reindeer sausage.

Uksakka Mökki Delivery food service is designed to make the holiday chef’s kitchen shifts easier. Uksakka Mökki Delivery prepares tasty meals to pick up on site and delivers gourmet packages to the cottage door in the Pyhä-Luosto area. In addition to meals, you can find e.g., tasty sauces, cakes, and other pastries.

Uksakka also provides catering services in both Luosto and the Sodankylä centre area, always listening wishes of the customer. Whether you are thinking of an evening party, anniversary, or other special occasion, please contact us well in advance so we have time to plan just the right servings for your special day.
