A very nice, friendly café directly across from the cathedral. We just had coffee and pastries, and both were excellent. Very friendly service.

Went there to rest a little with view on the cathedral. Had coffee and cake there- it was very difficult to decide what to take! Very good and friendly staff.

This is a lovely, unpretentious cafe for lunch. Service is very good. The food is solid and tasty. As with everything in Helsinki, it is a bit pricey for what you get. Definitely recommend.

We were meeting relatives by the Cathedral, and what better way than sitting having a coffee directly in front of the Cathedral. You get free refills, and there is seating indoors, but we sat outside. There is a delicious selection of cakes too. They are a bit pricey, but you are in a prime spot. Great coffee, great view and... More

Engel cafe is exactly in front of the cathedral in Helsinki. It is a great place for a coffee. But you can have lunch or a wine. The environment is great and the cake are so delicious. I should try the blackberry one with some tea, or try a traditional Finnish coffee.

The atmosphere here is great-- but my brunch was very plain and average. My egg was overcooked, the bread not as fresh as it should be, the fruit not completely ripe. It's a lovely cafe though, and in a great, central location.

A very cosy, contemporary style cafe with a very nice variety of salads, cakes and drinks located in the very heart of the nicest Helsinki's squares, the Senators square. Friendly staff, very clean place and a bit overpriced.

I had been to this cafe long time ago for a coffee, but this time I went there to try their lunch. The atmosphere is ok but the staff are not very friendly and helpful. I ordered salmon soup for lunch. It wasn't the best salmon soup I have had in Finland, so I do not recommend it to anyone... More

I always enjoy the breakfast here very much. The variety is not really anything out of the ordinary (breakfast roll, ham, cheese, egg, some vegetables and fruit) but it tastes really good and you get enough food to last you for a while. Lunch hasn't ever disappointed me either.

Breakfast was good and much. Price ranged was a bit high but service and overall filled it up. Very healthy products on your plate.
