Worth seeing and been seen in but, notwithstanding the great chocolate, overpriced and sometimes very overcrowded. Fazer chocolate (yum yum) for presents or eating later is much cheaper in the nearby supermarkets and department stores.

The best chocolate-raspberry cake of my life!!!! Slice of cake and coffee sitting outside during a lovely sunny afternoon (10€) : one of the best thing I've done in Helsinki!!!!

My wife and I lived in Helsinki for a few years, and Fazer cafe was a favorite. We always took visitors here to buy the traditional Fazer chocolate, sit and sip hot chocolate or coffee, and on occasion, buy one of the wonderful cakes. The cafe is a throwback to times where the food was elegantly displayed for customers to... More

If this is your flagship cafe in the city centre with tables outside why don't your offer table service instead of canteen queues? Nice staff nice food great presentation but respect and honour your brand.

A large, slightly Deco room with some outside seating. This is a café, where you take a tray and get your food at the counter before sitting down. But what an array of food! Gorgeous open sandwiches, pastries, Finnish specialities, everything from a full meal to a morning coffee. It's very relaxed, with lovely staff and an informal style, but... More

Nice place with long history in the centre of Helsinki! The cake was just delicious, the coffee was good. The service is fast, but as the place is overcrowded, you expect to stay in queue!

I dont know how the finns do this, but the cafes in general are not particulartly interesting or great. This is a good example of this phenomenon: nice Place, but nothing more, really. Standard service etc. Sadly.

The café have a good soup and salad bar for lunch and a lot of sandwiches and pastry. Fazer it’s also well known for its chocolates. Summer time it’s possible to eat outside.

Fresh and delicious bread with all you need for a slow breakfast delight. Different coffees, fine cheeses, cakes and smoothies also offered. The indoor seating under the round ceiling echoes discussions so not very suitable for sensitive discussions... Unfortunately, the prices have gone up during the past years but this place still tops the non-hotel breakfast places in central Helsinki.... More
