Great veggie lunch!

The menu's not extensive but there's enough to satisfy most everyone, the food's really good and the portions are generous. We enjoyed dining al fresco, watching passersby on the relatively quiet street.

Just a few steps from the Esplanade Park. This is vegetarian lunch restaurant and very good one. Home-style cooking, small and friendly place. Very popular at lunch time. Even if you are not vegetarian you will like this restaurant.

Have been here for lunch menu with our vegerarian friends. They had one menu containing soup and main dish, with optional dessert. All was very very tasty and for Finland I could also say cheap! Vegerarian or not, you will not go hungry out of this little vegerarian restaurant with home made food. The service was very friendly and forthcoming.... More

Went along to this restaurant while visiting Helsinki with a bunch of friends and I can quite frankly say that this was the highlight of a day spent sightseeing in the city. We got there at about 3.30pm, which is half an hour before restaurant closing, but got lucky as the friendly owner welcomed us in. We all ordered the... More

I normally prefer meat, but this place is great. Really good and tasty food every time! Only minus is that the place is closed on the weekend.

The food was excellent. You could tell it had been freshly prepared that day and was full of flavour. We got a good sized portion but was still very reasonably priced. The setting was small and cosy and had a good atmosphere. The gentleman that served us was very pleasant and spoke perfect English. Definitely a must when in Helsinki... More

Being a vegetarian, especially in Scandinavia, where not a lot of produce grows can be a challenge. So I was excited to actually find a veggie stop. the portions are huge and the staff is super friendly and helpful. Good for meat eaters as well. Only open for lunch not dinner

Being vegetarian can make travel difficult, especially when you're on a layover flight. We had just enough time to spend a couple of hours looking around the "centrum" and to have lunch. Happy Cow said this was a good place to eat and they weren't wrong. The food wasn't just good, it was excellent. Really good. For 10 euros, we... More

I went here with a colleague twice whilst we were at a conference and we both loved it! The friendly staff who were happy to tell us about the daily special in English, the wonderful food, which was great value - 10Euro for all the specials plus,bread and salad. And the buzzing atmosphere.
