The coffee is delicious and staff is friendly. Although the place is more a shop than a cafe and mostly people buy to go. But we could still enjoy our lovely cups of coffee (cappuccino and latte) there. I definitely recommend the place!

If you're looking for tasty cup of java, hot chocolate, or an espresso in Helsinki, this is the place. The shop offers gourmet Italian coffees that are robust and flavourful. Not many tables here, so if you wanted to relax with a cup of joe, you may not find a place to sit. The service was friendly and professional, and... More

There are a few Kaffecentralen shops in Helsinki. Must say they have such a good blend that I have never tasted better. The owners are awarded Baristas in europe so they know what they are brewing. Worth to try!

We often buy our coffee beans from this place, and several times per week stop for a coffee. The place on Eerikinkatu is more a shop than a cafe, but there are a few seats where you can enjoy your coffee. We usually drink cappuccinos or espressos, and they have never let us down. The staff is friendly and they... More
