The café is a former ski lodge for miners, now it has been extended by a terrace. You can chat with locals, have a cup of coffee or a glass of beer or wine and enjoy local delicacies like berry pies.

The café serves as an information point for the Outokumpu Wilderness and Nature Center. A 7 km nature trail and a 12-lake canoeing route depart from Särkiselkä. The wilderness center also has a recreational fishing area and a children's fish oasis. 

Nearby attractions include Outokumpu's Old Mine, which houses the Children's Mine and the Mining Museum. Kaksola berry farm is a great day trip destination. It is 43 km to Valamo Monastery, 45 km to Joensuu and 74 km to Koli.
