Nice pastries

Traditional coffee house in the center with a big choice of pastries. You can also take some things out including whole cakes and sweets. Definitely worth a stop!

Karl Frazer is a local chocolate brand, so we tried the hot chocolate at the cafe. We expect it to very rich but not very sweet, however it was a bit disappointed that it was more sweet than rich!!

This is a Helsinki must-do essential visit. The Fazer café has all the delicious refreshments one could need after a cold winter's afternoon wandering the city!

We have loved the place and try to find time for it everytime when we visit Helsinki. Lately the chaotic and noisy atmosphere has become more disturbing and this time we also felt that the cakes and sandwiches are not worth the very high prices which seem to go up every time. They don't sell the wonderful triple choco KFC... More

Eating out in Finland will strip you of cash. It was great to see in Fazer a soup and bread meal for 10 euro and it was filling and delicious. Its a nice enviroment and the service is fine.

You have seen the Fazer sweets...well, almost everywhere in Finland, from Vantaa Airport to every kiosk.

I also liked the great boxes from where you can make your own... More

When visiting Helsinki this is a excellent place if you want a piece of cake and hot chocolate. The salad is also recommended if you want a healthy alternative. I used the opportunity to by some sweets also, just enjoy!

Walking into this cafe is transcendent. It opens early - at 7:30am - and is a great spot for people-watching. It's fancy, and a treat, but it's worth it with the wide glass windows and open layout. It's fun to just listen to all the activity. Sampling the meats and cheeses at the buffet is fun and it feels like... More
