About
Ekberg is a Finnish artisan bakery and pâtisserie operating its own production since 1852. Quality, expertise and passion are the fundamental cornerstones of Ekberg’s activity. Fresh bread and buns are baked six days a week in our bakery on the welcoming street of Bulevardi, in the heart of Helsinki. Our product range follows today’s trends and varies according to the seasons. Our pâtisserie makes delicious cakes and pastries while our kitchen serves enjoyable food. Ekberg’s selection includes traditional delicacies, such as excellent French macaroons and Champagne corks, as well as new, seasonally varying products. We look forward to seeing you soon, you are warmly welcome to Ekberg!
