Great location just across the street from the central train station. Cozy and pretty place inside. The salad that I had was of a generous size and delicious!

Cafe Roasberg is a relatively well-known cafe in Helsinki, located at Rautatientori square. With its good location, this cafe gained popularity and whenever you go there you can see a bunch of customers inside. It is surely a "fine" cafe but it is hard to...say that it deserves its fame. I had a cappuccino and a slice of blueberry cheesecake. Cappuccino was great, smooth like I wanted which is rare in Helsinki, where most of the cafes use stronger beans and therefore have bitter coffees. With its 4.30 euro price tag, it is slightly above the Helsinki average, but not an important difference to mention. However, I can't be so positive about blueberry cheesecake. A really small slice of cheesecake costs 7 euros and it wasn't good at all. It was too sweet and lacked the balance that you would like to find in a cheesecake. In addition to that, the place itself isn't really attractive too. It doesn't have a unique character, which is an important aspect to me regarding cafes. One of two good points that I can make is service quality. The staff was friendly and service was fast enough. In the end, Cafe Roasberg is an average cafe with high prices. With its good location it might seem attractive but consider crowdedness and high prices as well.More

We came here one evening while on our 3 day stay in Helsinki. It had a nice vibe, very relaxed. For some silly reason I ordered a slice of chocolate cake even though it was 7 euro! I was expecting for that price for it...to be the best cake ever but it was very mediocre. I wouldn't eat here again, maybe return for drinks.More

Unfortunately not what I would have expected for a top location. The vegetarian menu options were rather limited, tasteless and simple. The only creative element about the experience was the price.

There is no storage of cafés in Helsinki but finding one that offers genuine services is not easy. Fortunately, I came across Roasberg which is probably the best one around town. Excellent location as well and I have since become a regular. From tea to...coffee, and from beer to wine, they have a huge selection to choose from. They also serve food and cakes. If you want to have a drink and don’t want to go to a super noisy bar, this is also the place for you. What I like the most about this place is the relaxing vibe and friendly staff. They always make you feel very welcome! Last but not least, a big shout-out to Savaş!More

We popped in on our first day. It had a trendy, student vibe and was really friendly and relaxed. Lots of chatting, laptops, and cake! We shared a mozarella and pesto sandwich plus carrot cake...it was so good we came back 3 days later :)

This is a winning spot for coffee in a nice location and nice little Bohemian theme in Helsinki. Pleasant scene.

A cosy, slightly Bohemian cafe at the heart of Helsinki. Nice good, great coffee and drinks and friendly staff. The cafe is bigger than you think (also check the basement), and always bustling with people in a good way.

I went for an early lunch on Saturday. This is a very nice place with friendly staff. I got mushroom rain deer quiche with a side salad. Quiche was delicious. Also hot a chocolate cake and cappuccino, cake was very very good. I like the...interior as well. Very good value for money spent, I would recommend visiting.More

Trip advisor previous reviews are correct! This cafe is awesome, fairly rustic but comfortable. Atmosphere 'bohemian' and the music great. Vety cultural. Food, I wanted a cheese sandwich with salad and that's what I got. (Most sandwiches in Helsinki seem to have fish in them,...again relative to culture). Coffee also warm, pleasant and served in a glass to. Definitely a place to visit again. Across from main rail station if coming into Helsinki.More

This place was a big plus surprise at opposite of main railway station, offering actually much more wider list of eat in menu than just only those delicious small eatings with coffee. Visited there with some friends before going into meetings. So not the place...where people just doing beer, rather than have several possible good options from menu. Next time I'll stop & check main courses. My first time didn't allowed to stay longer than half an hour.More

I popped in on Saturday morning for a quick lunch before I caught the train to the airport. I was massively impressed, I had the Salmon Soup which was on (€11.50 at the weekend) and it was absolutely fantastic, wish I'd had a chance to...pop in a little more and try some of their other food. Great place to relax and eat!More
