Just arrived at Helsinki, we headed for the famous Fazer cafe. Very impressive place with lots of chocolate, cakes, and pastry. Since we were hungry we went for the self service soup buffet.

This is one of the best places to eat ice-cream in Helsinki :) Also a nice place for breakfast but quite crowded especially during weekends. The location is good right next to Kämp (Galleria Esplanad).

This place is a must for all those who never realized Finnish contribution to chocolate , it's a nice place for breakfast and all day long. It tends to be a bit touristy but is also visited by locals. Buy some chocolate there and enjoy the local delicacies ydhjdhfudyffehdbe xxbsucvissjvjfkjfjdlvjo qlzkcmcckckclclcdkfjffjksjvkkfjckdikJzjjj

It is usually quite busy and they have an excellent selection. A bit on the pricey side, but I would recommend this place.

The place is quite big, but there was quite a lot of people. Much more compare to another places. The coffee was very nice and the chocolate cake was amazing. It's autoservice and they work efficiently and fast.

Went there for dessert, had a couple cakes which were superb. They also make chocolates and lots of other sweet items for sale. Also does breakfast but did not have time to check it out. Leaving Finland at the lounge in the airport they had Karl Fazer chocolates which were really good.
