Stylishly renovated cafeteria/restaurant in the heart of Helsinki, in one of the most beautiful buildings in the city, Ateneum Art Museum. Great views. Good variety of confectionaries. Cozy atmosphere.

After a couple of hours in the gallery, you feel like a bite to eat and this bistro cafe is right next to the Exit and beacons you in. The food is tasty, good quality and good value. Height of Summer, but no queues.

A great, beautiful space with friendly staff and nice café products. They also serve great lunch buffet! Not the cheapest in town, though.

We stopped by to meet up friends at the Ateneum café. Nothing much to say: crowded, very, very noisy, and the worst coffee I have drank in Helsinki. Does it even qualify as coffee? Warm brownish water.... Shameful.More

Hi Claude, a shame to hear your visit wasn't a success! I'm not sure what happened with the coffee, perhaps there was a mistake with the brewing process. Our beans come from Holmen Coffee which is a local roastery here in Helsinki. We grind the...More

We spent several hours in the museum and this was a convenient place to grab lunch. You order from the counter and it is a slow process. We each got the spinach and feta quiche with the finnish butter roll which were very good. The...More

After visiting the Gallery we thought about having a lunch break and went to the Ateneum Bistro. The Mango Cheesecake I ordered was very delicious. They also had a lot of glutenfree and lactosefree options which were also good labeled.
