“Our favourite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

We visit Gran Delicato multiple times a year but this original location mostly only during summers as we enjoy some late breakfast/lunch after visiting Hietaniemi flea market each Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Most of the times we order chiabattas (fresh high quality ingredients, olive oil is not spared) and ice frappes (with milk and sugar, usually contains a bit too much foam). The last time we also tried feta salad which was really good and fresh as well.

During last couple of years they have expanded the space in the original Kalevankatu location and also opened a new one at Galleria Esplanad (Kämp) ground floor although this new location is not as cozy. Although we liked the original smaller venue better, now there are no problems finding a free table although the shop seems to be quite busy every time we visit.

“Really nice neighbourhood cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Really nice neighbourhood cafe in the design area of Helsinki. Run by what seems like a family of Greeks. Very good cafe type food, excellent coffee, nice atmosphere. I often stay in a nearby Hotel & always choose this cafe for breakfast/lunch rather than the Hotel restaurant.

“Good place, worth to visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Best coffee I tried in Helsinki. For sure, It will be my "must go" place every time I visit Helsinki. I read through reviews on TripAdvisor and see that some people say "its so Italian". This is a Greek style, look closely on the photos on the wall! :)

“A favourite in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is one of my favourite cafés in Helsinki. The ciabattas are amazing - from fresh ingredients and so tasty! The interior is cosy and if you manage to get one of the tables with the comfy armchairs you could stay there for hours.

“So Italian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This is one of the few places that really takes you to Italy, great sandwiches and salads, both are sold as take-away also. Also sells Italian coffees in packages, if you are not a friend of the nordic light roast.
