“Excellent cakes, hot chocolate and service, but a bit noizy.”

Huge choice of all kinds of pancakes and drinks, and of course the famous chocolate. Great atmosphere! Must visit place, if you are in Helsinki!

“Sweet but busy!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We had lunch here a Saturday and it was hard to find a table. The people working here were sweet, and the sandwiches were tasty but it was very busy!

“Ah Karl, if you were a person I would be missing you.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

Your long lines stunk but, boy, were you worth the wait. We all enjoyed our meal, sitting outside, and people watching in Finland. Just wonderful.

Tip: Be sure to stock up on some chocolate before you leave. They have packaging / boxes that make great presents!

“Great lunch/dessert - cafeteria style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Great spot to grab a decent lunch especially if you like dessert at lunch. Decent prices. Indoor and outdoor seating in a central location. I had shrimp salad on toast and chocolate mousse cake - the cake was out of this world. It's also a store for Fazer chocolates.

“Packed with people (tourists) most hours of the day.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Good confectionary and cakes. Average food. Very busy. Almost all day. Noisy, large room, but if you aren't fazed by that, then you should definitely pop by and have preferably something sweet.
