A real good place for friends and coffee

This place has a very honest, real look and feel. The atmosphere is Mediterranean and the owner is Greek. There are many great choices of sandwiches and specials each day. The cappuccino and expresso offering is one of the two best in Helsinki (see Espresso Edge). It's a great place to spend an... read more

We came here for lunch in our visit to Helsinki based on tripadvisor comments. We ordered one sandwich and one salad and honestly, they were average (maybe on the low range) and very expensive. We know everything is expensive in Helsinki, but still we found it very poor. Do not recommend this place.

This was a first experience of a restaurant where the owner makes sexually harassing comments about my wife to a waiter that had just showed her the way to the restrooms. I was sitting by the table nearest to the counter and heard their conversations. They guys there are Greek and thought that I did not understand anything as there... More

Very comfortable bar where have informal meetings, nice talks with friends or even be alone with your coffee. Run by a greek owner kee p a good mix of mediterranean touch with finnish rules. Sandwich are tasty, good coffee and tea. Tables and chairs, together with big windows give to the palce a good vibe.

I think you will be agree with me that it's a little bit strange to have a coffee in a place where you feel yourself like there's a hot sunny Greece behind the windows. All the atmosphere of Gran Delicato, decoration and taste of coffee make you to forget about nordic Finland. Very pleasant place!

If you have a special diet and food allergies, I suggest you to avoid this place. Basically the food is good and salads taste fresh, but Gran Delicato does not serve any gluten free bread or pasta, and they are very rude if you even ask them about it. They are also unable to prepare you a special salad with... More

Do you look for a place to have a brunch? :) Then this is the right place you have to visit! They have a best ciabatta, cozy atmosphere and friendly service. Actually I checked this cafe from tripadvisor and that's why I dropped by. And the ciabatta sandwich was even better than I expected! I was in the zone and... More

I found this Place via tripadvisor for lunch during my Business Trip. I had the Ciabatta no.8 with a side salad for 11€. Price was quite high, but seems to be normal in Helsinki. Ciabatta was delicious! Would recommend this Place again. But rather take two Ciabatta instead of the side salad.

This was our first meal in Helsinki after a long flight. A good place to relax. The food was fresh, service very good, and atmosphere welcoming and cozy. I had a smoked salmon ciabatta with a mixed salad and my spouse had a ciabatta with eggplant. feta, tomato, and smoked meat along with a mixed salad. We finished with a... More
