Do not forget your visit to this fine establishment. Might not be a center-of-town point but well worth a stroll. A good diversity of food, step inside a let your worries wait outside for a while.

Gran Delicato used to be my favourite spot for my morning coffee while living in Helsinki. Now I never miss to visit the coffee shop/restaurant when in town! Originally I got hooked by their very good coffee and friendly and international owner + stuff. I usually have a big latte and a very tasty chapata (be ware not to drip... More

We actually were eating in the Kämp center Gran Delicato, but I didn't find a page of their own. We were staying in the Glo Kluuvi hotel, which is in the same building. And since we didn't have a breakfast booked with our hotel we came here to eat. We loved the parma ham, basil chiabatta - it was so... More

A great stop for a sandwich and a coffee. Look out for the English menu's by the till. Wide range of baguettes and ciabatta's with cheeses, meats and salad. Also has a pasta and soup of the day which are popular with the lunchtime locals. The warren of rooms encourages you to stop and savour, you can curl up with... More

We visit Gran Delicato multiple times a year but this original location mostly only during summers as we enjoy some late breakfast/lunch after visiting Hietaniemi flea market each Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Most of the times we order chiabattas (fresh high quality ingredients, olive oil is not spared) and ice frappes (with milk and sugar, usually contains a bit too... More

Really nice neighbourhood cafe in the design area of Helsinki. Run by what seems like a family of Greeks. Very good cafe type food, excellent coffee, nice atmosphere. I often stay in a nearby Hotel & always choose this cafe for breakfast/lunch rather than the Hotel restaurant.

Best coffee I tried in Helsinki. For sure, It will be my "must go" place every time I visit Helsinki. I read through reviews on TripAdvisor and see that some people say "its so Italian". This is a Greek style, look closely on the photos on the wall! :)

This is one of my favourite cafés in Helsinki. The ciabattas are amazing - from fresh ingredients and so tasty! The interior is cosy and if you manage to get one of the tables with the comfy armchairs you could stay there for hours.

This is one of the few places that really takes you to Italy, great sandwiches and salads, both are sold as take-away also. Also sells Italian coffees in packages, if you are not a friend of the nordic light roast.
