Quirky, beatiful

I've lived close to Regatta for several years and visited several times. Went again this morning and had such a nice experience that I decided to review. Simply the best cafe in town. Period.

The place is open the whole year. It's very small but one of the cutest coffee places I've ever seen. You might wanna go there with your partner or friends. They offer many traditional finnish sweets and snacks. The open fire outside is nice. Try it, you will enjoy it!

Outside the central area is this tiny red cottage, which you can reach only by foot or own car. Cottage with only few seats inside, a lot more outside for ex in a rocking chair with seaview or around an open camp fire. This place is popular with locals and quite a number if tourists have found this nowadays, too.... More

Very popular home-style summer café. Enjoy sun, sea and summer terrace. You can also grill outside. Not for rainy days. If you do not like smell of smoke of the grill it is better to go some other place. But this is real finnish summer experience.

Visited here with wife and kids. Came on the basis of tripadvisor reviews but a little surprised at what we found. It is basically a small hut which is full of junk that serves rubbish hot chocolate. Cinnamon buns were nice. Would have only given it a three star review until we found out you could buy sausages for 1.80E... More

This cafe is close to the sea a really cute. You should definitely go there with a friend and not miss it when you are visiting Helsinki. They have the best cinnamon roles (pulla) in whole Helsinki. Made by themselfs. It is a special sweet and typical for Finland. So you have to try them in cafè regatta!!! If you... More

This funny little wooden cafe 1 minutes walk from the must-see Sibelius monument is also a must-try experience. The coffee is lousy, but who cares when you can grill sausages outside on an open fire and the staff is so extremely friendly. We heard that cakes were very nice, but didn't try them ourselves. Go there!
