Variety of products in the cafe is very basic, but the view from the terrace is nice. Definitely a place to visit in summer.

There are a few very good seaside cafées in Espoo, but Café Merenneito (finnish for Mermaid) is a personal favorite of mine. Depending on your mood/weather you can either choose to sit inside or outside. Great place to relax a bit during a long summer day, and great also during the winter.

I like to visit this cafe every time I walk or bike down that beach. Be it some coffee with sweets, or a glass of cider - always a pleasant experience thanks to nice staff and beautiful quiet location.

whether during winter or summer, this is a great place to have a coffee. The view on the sea and neighbouring islands is great. You can also walk along the sea in a great pedestrian path after your coffee. tables are outside, wooden bunch and a volley ball field in summer. They also rent kayak.

At least we got very bad service. These ladies should not be in customer service, and probably any other country (ecept Baltics, Fin and Swe), they would not. However, great location, very limited offering.

If you find yourself in Espoo, this place is well worth a visit. It's a summer Café located directly on the beach with lots of tables outside, and some indoors. The view is great, the perfect place to watch the sunset and enjoy a glass of prosecco. The Bar offers a wide choice of options for drinks and some snacks.... More
