This is a very busy place, and not maybe the best for intimate dates or conversations. Especially if you are sitting under the dome, which has amazing acoustics and you can literally here even a whisper from across the room. Cakes and baked goods are good, but very sweet and they have a "mass produced" feeling to them as in... More

The sweets and pastry are great also the coffee but don't t worth 7e a piece of chocolate cake. The place is beautiful and fancy but the prices doesn't match to what they offer as food.

This is an excellent cafe well situated in Helsinki. We had lunch there and were impressed with the wonderful array of open sandwiches and pastries served with great coffee and tea. The service is very good and we would recommend.

Eight of us visited here for coffees and desserts on our recent trip to Helsinki. Coffee was lovely and the cakes were oh so delicious!! The complimentary sweets were also a great hit, especially with the small ones. We even saw one of them trying to prise open the little sweet display on the table! She didn't succeed of course!!...

One of the best cafes in Helsinki. Wide variety of drinks, cakes, sandwiches and pastry. Brunch. Hard to find a free table on busy hours. Self service is a disappoinment.

Nice place, good cafe and deserts. But noisy and touristy. We did appreciate the afternoon stop on a cold day, and I personally liked the variety of gluten/lactose free options!

Stopped here as part of Heather's Helsinki food walking tour. It was a huge cafe with tons of options. Heather picked me up a cappuccino and a couple local pastries to finish our tour. The coffee was good and the pastries were spot on - one was a little doughnut and the other was a spongecake with cream, strawberries, bananas... More

Karl Fazer cafe has propably the best price-quality considering weekday breakfast. Also the brunch has good quality and the price is right. Service is always good and fast. Otherwise a really nice cafe to work or just enjoy good delicacies.

The cafe offers tasty coffee (naturally) and as we visited in the evening, there was a variety of cold snacks and salads. Lots of cakes as well. The service is friendly and the occupancy (most tables full) is testament to its popularity with both locals and tourists. Be sure to visit the chocolaterie and take home some local quality treats!

Wonderful place, fabulous cakes, sandwiches etc., and of course the chocolate! Make sure to bring home some to your family or friends. Good atmosphere - works if you're alone and want a quick stop or tea snd cake with friends or colleagues. Enjoy!

Thank Anne S
