About Us

Discover our unique culinary vision: affordable high-quality dining and drinks paired with a constantly evolving menu, featuring our homemade brunch classics and inspired dishes you won't find anywhere else in Turku or Finland.

Any day's a Saturday

One of the first plans for the restaurant was a true brunch, which to us means, eggs benedict, pancakes, and an English breakfast. To set the standard, both the English muffins for eggs benedict and the pancakes are made in the restaurant with our own recipe. The same care goes into the rest of the dishes, creating meals we are proud to serve. We pair the food with a growing selection of beers, wines and cocktails. Our menus will evolve as we find new ideas and adapt to suit the seasons.
Culinary Gluttonary Wizard

After being a corporate chef in America for more than 15 years I decided a change and moved to Finland in 2014. I opened Cafe Pispala in Tampere with a Finnish friend and after a few years opened three new restaurants in Tampere. All different and unique. First was Ohana Grille, an American burger place in Kaupahalli. After 3 years I opened Aloha Ramen and then Taco's and Tequila. An opportunity came up in Turku so three good friends with different backgrounds combined forces to open Little Saturday.

Hospo extraordinaire

My name is Ziggy, one of the owners/creators of little Saturday, born and raised in sunny Wales, UK. My background is running and operating barber lounges and bars. Travelled and owned multiple companies across the globe, specialising in creating new concepts that’s focusing on bringing people together. I own and operate Finland’s first A1 licensed bar/tattoo and barbershop in Turku. I have lived in Turku since covid with my Finnish wife and child. My friends and I brainstormed an idea to create a company, combining all our strengths. Many months later the brand was born.

Maître G

I moved from the UK to Finland at a young age, and after finishing my degree I found work in the bar industry, moving from Oulu to Tampere. While having some experience in restaurants before moving to Finland, it was here that I started to feel comfortable working in hospitality. In Turku I started work at Woolshed, which I came to manage during the first year. When the opportunity to take over the location and create something new arose, I was excited to start a new project with two friends.
