Wonderful sweets and ice cream, good coffee with free refills if you sit there, candy shop with items that may make good gifts to take home - all in all this is a place worth stopping in. There is a little cafe that serves sandwiches and salads as well. A little busy depending on the time of day and a... More

51 years ago we had our wedding lunch at Fazer. We came back recently, and much has changed but the food and atmosphere were still very good. One waits for a table, then places an order at the counter for food, which one takes back to the table. It used to be table service, but oh well. The light lunch... More

Our group of five stopped by here for a late night dessert. Good choice. Three layer chocolate cake, tort and a cake (looked like a carrot cake) all were delicious. Obviously, we bought some famous Frazer chocolates to go. I highly recommend you skip the dessert in your restaurant and go here instead.

Food is delicious and if you eat something you get cheaper coffee with free refills. Desserts are sinfully delicious.

This is a lovely old building that many reviewers have commented on. It houses a vast selection of Fazer chocolates at sensible prices and some lovely cakes and salads. Prices are average for the Esplanade area (Budget 4 to 5 Euros for a speciality coffee and 6 euros for a decent cake or 10 Euros for a salad) of Helsinki... More

It might sound like an odd combination but I must admit this is the best chocolate combination I have ever had. It is a must to go here if you are in Helsinki.

Although many will probably venture here because of the chocolates etc., the cafe on the other side of the place serves a decent selection of different types of coffees and - delightfully - teas. Also available are some savoury dishes etc., and for dessert I'd suggest a serving of ice cream.

A very popular cafe and light snack/lunch restaurant & deli shop in downtown Helsinki. Enjoy cakes, sweet buns, shrimp sandwhiches, carelian pies, soup, chocolates... a good place to endoulge yourself. Take your time with this place - lots to see and try. Highly recommend their hot chocolate drinks, it's pricy, but worth it!

Fazer Cafe is one of the true Helsinki landmarks and a classical place to meet people. Excellent breakfast, known for its bakery products and chocolate. Always worth a trip. The only challenge is that the place is frequently quite crowded.
