Coffee Break

Great place for coffee and pastry break. Liked the fact that parents could leave their children in prams outside to indulge in quiet coffee.

This is a place for a hearty breakfast and for newspapers in Finnish, Swedish ans English. Coffee time too and otherwise one of the best coffee shops in Helsinki... A lovely room and great service.

As for me I like to come to this cafe in the morning to start my day in Helsinki with a nice cup of coffee and a freshly-backed bun. It's a lively but a very cosy place. It fills you with energy for the rest of the day.

The breakfast buffet was very good it costs about 10 euro on friday. There was not that many tables so we had to wait a little. And there is also the ekberg shop on the right side.

I have heard about this classic bakery/cafe for its history and specialities. Finally, I decided to go out of my way to really visit and eventually experience the "Ekberg classic experience". It was easy to find. I peeped into the bakery area first. It was warm inside (a factor that immediately brings a feeling of discomfort to a customer). On... More

Ekberg is the most classic cafe in Helsinki. Long traditions show. It has an Wiennese style air. Not for a quick cup of coffee but tor the confectionery, atmosphere, and enjoyment.

I thought arriving a little after the breakfast rush hour would guarantee that we wouldn't be left waiting. Sadly we left without ordering. Total failure by anybody to acknowledge we'd even arrived. One person was busily stacking clean cups and when I approached the counter came in to the dining area. Unfortunately it was to clean a dirty table, without... More

And this should be one of the best cafeterias in Helsinki! You come here expecting something special, and then everything is average. The tables are not cleaned, and even the toilet facilities are a little bit suspicious. The coffee was average, and salmon sandwich even poor. The prices were high. Of course the interior is fine, but it doesn't save... More

Traditional cafe with quality products ( pastry, sandwiches, salads etc ). Good place to start the day in Helsinki with an excellent breakfast buffet. A favorite place for local people. Nice atmosphere. Self service , so do not expect more than an average service.

After 15 minutes of waiting we finally got a waitress. Instead of 'Hello, what would you like to have?' we got 'We're closing in ten minutes!'
