Brunch in Helsinki

Service was friendly. Brunch was mainly equal to a hotell breakfast, which was fine. The croissants were better than average. The place was pretty crowded. The view was nice.

As a first time visitor to Helsinki I found this cafe old fashioned but it fits in well with the surroundings , and it's clean. Only tried the desserts and they didn't disappoint. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Reasponably priced.

Good desserts! Expensive. Keep on walking for a few more meters and there are better alternatives, esp. if you are below 50 :)

Stopped in on a rainy day in Helsinki. Very pleasant, clean place without many trimmings. But a fine place to stop for a break and an espresso. Well situated in the downtown area.

This place has been around a long time, and the interior feels like it (in a good way), with high ceilings, old pillars, a built in clock on the wall, and so on. We really enjoyed the daily breakfast buffet - 11.5 Euros on weekdays. Coffee and tea, along with juices, cereals, oatmeal, eggs, fruit, pastries, cold cuts, lots of... More

One of the most expensive café places in Helsinki. Café tastes basic and there aren't any special cakes either. Tourists, try to rather find small café places in Helsinki.

We stopped in this cafe for coffee and a sweet roll, on the advice of a local resident, during a recent walking tour of downtown Helsinki. The decor is plain, the cafe is clean and the service was very good. We enjoyed excellent coffee and cinnamon rolls. The baked goods and sandwiches all looked very appealing. The price didn't seem...

This place has always been there. It is a very traditional place where locals go to have coffee and piece of cake. Place is very nice and location is good quite close to city center. On weekends their brunch is an institution and very popular.

After walking through the streets of Helsinki, we were happy to find tthis lovely Cafe. The sandwiches were very tasty, the croissant perfectly flakey & latte exactly foamy for my taste! In regard to the service, all wait staff (2 women and a man) were very pleasant and attentive. My 15 year old daughters and I left in a bit... More

Go and experience this old bakery by all means. But be warned that there's nothing exclusive about its food, which is very expensive.
