“Very good museum café.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

Great value lunches with coffee and salad included. Water provided free - you don't have to ask (should be standard everywhere).
Good, attentive, friendly service. Choice small but excellent quality and healthy. Good veggie choice for main too.
Nice atmosphere and clean with a good view, tastefully furnished.
We returned just for the food, even though we weren't visiting the gallery (which is good too!).

“Sunny terrace”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant/cafe is located in the contemporary art museum Kiasma. The cafe decor is fun and they have a nice, sunny terrace you can sit and sip coffee or something stronger. They also serve lunch, which is usually good. The staff is friendly and the drinks as well as sweet pastries good. A nice place to relax after a day of sightseeing (open until 21.00 I believe).

“A delight!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013 via mobile

Very nice option for a lunch or coffee break. Service of this cafe is just super! This cafe is in the art centre, in the very center of Helsinki. A great place to meet, too. The museum shop next door is also tempting...

“Great view, not so good a smoothie”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

The location is great and from the cafe you have a nice view to the busy street of Mannerheiminkatu. However the smoothie I ordered was thin as milk and with no flawour. The lunch however was good!
