It's pricey, but its fantastic and you have full access to all of the Fazer brand chocolates and other products. Since it was Easter time, there were also many packages featuring the "Mignon" eggs which were really unique! I also ordered two different treats from their bakery and enjoyed both. The first was a sort of pastry with berries on... More

I'm in Helsinki once a year for business and a visit to the Fazer Cafe is an established routine. It's hard to decide wether to have a delicious cake or pastry, the famous hot chocolate or a nice sandwich - it's your choice and you won't be disappointed . Apart from Finnish prices the only downside is the seating which... More

Karl Fazer Cafe is a great place to have a cup of coffee and they have a pretty good selection of both salty and sweet pastries. The mocha as well as regular coffee are excellent, and I have no complaints about the cheesecake either.

Hi travellers, If you are hungry in the morning, a stop in Karl Fazer cafe will make you happy for the rest of the day. For only 12€, you can choose salty or sweet food. Situated in Kluuvikatu, it is at 5 minutes from Central Railway station by foot and at 2 minutes by foot from the symbol of Finland,... More

Fazer is the place where all the kids in Helsinki have eaten an ice cream portion back in the old days. The cafe still looks the same as thirty some years ago. A bit expensive, but the pastries, salads and ice creams are from fresh ingredients and so tasty! Brunch on Sat and Sun is popular, preferable book a table... More

Pretty expensive and not as cozy as some cafés in Helsinki but the quality is always good. It's not probably the most original place to visit but a safe choice when you want something sweet & yummy.

The cakes here are simply awesome. This is my most favourite coffee place in the city. The chocolates and coffee are very good too.

Karl Fazer Café is just that kind of a modern classic cafe in the heart of Helsinki, where I´ve always experienced a marvellous coffee break, just before entering the famous Maxim cinema a few meters further. Alright, it is more than a café, it is a step ahead of other cafes because it´s elegant atmosphere. A place full of interesting... More

Very nice interior, good atmosphere and delicious cakes. The prices are quite high but it is worth the experience. Awesome place to be with friends and spend a classy afternoon. The brunch is also very good, variety of breads and cakes, and other things.
