Enchanting view and nice atmosphere

It is a cafe/bistroo with very beautiful view on the sea,located on a sea boulevard with cozy summer terrace. Food is average,it is a bistroo but deserve a visit for sure... perfect place to chill out and chat with a friend.

The wiew is exceptional but this is not a café, it's a dog park. It is unbelievable that the management allows dogs in a place where food is prepared, served and eaten. I'm not talking about small handbag sized dogs but large retreivers, german shepherds and the likes. One of these dogs is enough for the air to be contaminated... More

I have discovered this place recently and it is a good place to hang out. It is somehow hard for working class to go there because it is over crowded during the weekends and it closes at 16.00 during the week. One thing: Bar tender told us that they are closing it 5 minutes after he sold us whiskey.

My friend who lives in Helsinki suggested we stop here for mid morning coffee. Located on the waterfront, the cafe was bright, light and airy. Plenty of windows for fantastic views. Plenty of seating. It must be a popular location for workers, as there were quite a few people using the cafe for business meetings. Service is cafeteria style. I... More

We stopped in for a hot chocolate and a rest after a 5 km walk in wind and rain. The aztec cocoa was lacking chili, but tasted nice and the carrot cake we shared was delicious!! It's not very cosy, but spacious and airy and the restrooms were spotless! If you look beyond the car park just outside, the view... More

They have a few very tasty coffee flavors, not just americano and cappuccino. Plenty of room to host even bigger group of friends or run business meetings. Plenty of parking area next to road, 1€/h, yet parking space runs out late afternoon.

It's quite difficult to find nice places opened on sundays in Helsinki. This one was, and I took a light lunch there. Took some roe cake and a chocolate cake. There were mainly finnish patrons. Nice view. They have a brunch on sunday.

This is a good cafeteria to visit with your friends for a cup of coffee or lunch. They have good selection of small and bigger portions to choose from. Also I like their coffees. At least during the weekdays it is easy to find a table in this place.

The round building caught our eyes during our walk around Helsinki and we escaped the rain and wind to this café. It is really a simple café with self service but the view of the sea is beautiful, even at grey days. We had some cakes (like a huge cinnamon roll), tea, coffee and hot chocolate (you could choose from... More
