We visited Ekberg with my husband and ordered sandwiches, coffee, tea and orange juice. The drinks were more than good, but the sandwiches were a bit hard to eat and the bread wasn't soft enough. Also, there was a lot of things that were out of stock which was very unfortunate. We didn't really care for the service either, it... More

It's a warm and cosy place with a lovely atmosphere that beckons a return visit. So in fact we enjoyed it so much that we returned for lunch the next day. I had the smoked salmon... More

Old traditional cafe but the prices are too high and the service slow. There are better places downtown Helsinki - nearby. Time for Ekberg to improve and change the concept

One of the two traditional cafes that have table service. Friendly staff, good coffee and pastries. Relaxed old time atmosphere.

The Nepolian is wonderful, and you need to try the Hot Chocolate. My wife and I came here for a mid day snack and it was delicious. The servers however are a different deal. We waited over 45 minutes to pay the bill. Not from the time we ordered, but from the time we finished eating. We asked the server... More

The next time you are Shopping in the design district of Helsinki why not sit down and take a moment to enjoy the delicious food, pastries and coffee at this wonderful location. It can get crowded but that is just a sign of the enormous popularity of this local icon!
