When we arrived around 1230 for coffee and cakes, we had trouble finding a table with two chairs as customers were moving furniture around. We found one by the door and I asked a waitress if it could be cleared.....after ordering I had to chase up for the table to be cleared and then had to wait a while for... More

We just had to make Cafe Ekberg our first call in Helsinki. No longer in England do we have cafes of the bygone past like Cafe Ekberg. Its decor and charm were just what we expected. Sadly, on this occasion, its staff and presentation were tired. Would we return, probably not, there are probably better bakeries in Australia and more... More

Great all you can eat breakfast with a tantalising mix of sweet (pastries and cakes) and savoury (eggs, cheese, charcuterie) as well as traditional breakfast items like yoghurt, fruit and toast. Decent coffee as well. Great value at 10 euros for the buffet and a great start to the day - I've eaten here a few times and, after breakfast,... More

This old-fashioned café in the center of Helsinki opens already at 7.30 AM, so it is a good idea to have your breakfast here. The atmosphere is quite nice, a bit old-fashioned and cosy. The breakfast costs 10,50 euros and includes good bread, eggs, some ham and cheese, vegetables, fruit and fruit juices. At the end you must try their... More

Every time I visit Helsinki I enjoy the delicious cakes and excellent coffee at this old-fashioned café. There is a great variety of cakes for any taste. The last time I enjoyed here the "Budapest" cake that was beyond praise, it was really melting in my mouse. We even popped in the next door "Ekberg" confectioners shop to buy more... More

Gorgeous setting with lovely looking cakes. Huge variety of sweet treats and breads. Staff is very friendly. A bit on the expensive side but a treat well worth!

Obviously this place is in Finland therefore the ambiance and general feel by default has to be Finnish. However if it is your first visit to Helsinki and if by any chance you have been to Bettys in York in the North of England - that is the sort of place to expect. Charming little café serving beautiful (both to... More

I was here last month, it was kind of busy but it was manageable. I had a quick lunch with one of my colleagues but it took a long time before our food was served (although it was really good). The staff was really nice, they told us some directions.

There is an Ekberg store where you can get your treats to take away and there is ANOTHER Ekberg next door where you can order a treat and sit down and have something to eat and drink, more of a cafe. I had one of the pulla's which was tasty. Good location near an indoor market.

Average breakfast buffet but due to high price rated as 'poor'; there are places around with much better price / quality (try 'Engel'), with good ambiance. Breakfast equals quality you also get in a decent hotel, only in the hotel you get at least your coffee served! Buffet does not reflect that Ekberg is bakery too.
