“Nice break place”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

If you want to have some nice break beside sea, you should visit here. You can have nice coffee and some frersh pastry.

When shining nicely, it is not so easy to get seat outside. And good place to make a stop also when cycling.

“Excellent cafe by the beach”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Cafe Mellsten is situated by the beach in Espoo, Haukilahti. The Cafe is very cosy, serves lunch buffet and highly recommended pizzas after 6 pm. During the weekends they have fajitas-buffet and usually the cafe is rather full. Service is rather slow, maybe due to lots of customers. Come with children or with your dog, you`ll enjoy your stay. House vine reasonably priced, 24 cl 8 euros.

“Great location”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

Fabulous location, but limited menu... for location as good as Mellsten's , you'd imagine it would be a full service restuarant...well it is and it is not. Friendly and helpful staff, the menu is right for a Cafe. Good Pizzas and in the winter they make a good soup too.

“Cafe by the sea”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

Cafe Mellsten is a small cafe by the sea in Haukilahti. The building is old and not too well kept, but there's two nice terraces, one facing the sea; one on the boat harbour side. On a summer day the place is often packed (kids can play on the beach and there's a playground; there's also an ice cream kiosk), winter it's more quiet and only open on weekends or certain days. We visit often both summer and winter because of the sea and the athmosphere of the place; and the view of course (and the hot dogs!). The terrace is open in the winter too, bit reminiscent of skiing resorts - dress warmly! The service is fine, but it's mostly self service, tables are not waited. There's a buffet lunch, hot dogs and the like. If you're looking for fine dining, this is not for you; but if you want outdoors and the sea, you might just like it! Just remember to check their web site to make sure the place is open. Further on the plus side, the prices are very reasonable.
