Fazer is a famous, old chocolate manufacturer and this is their well known cafe just a block off the Esplanadi. The food, confections, pastries and coffee offerings are fantastic. Everything looks great.

The only downside is that it's so popular and large that sometimes the check out line can be daunting and it might be hard to get a seat.

On balance, it's highly recommended if you're in Helsinki and want a nice breakfast or lunch or a place to stop for an afternoon coffee and pastry

What's not to like about a traditional european konditerei? Here at Karl Fazer you can also get sandwhiches and quiches as well as amazing tortes, kuchen, chocolates and mile high sundae creations. The staff are lovely, smiling even with a full house of tourists drooling on the display cases and making amusing attempts at speaking Finnish. Great spot for afternoon coffee and cake (and people watching).

limited range but good coffee and basic bits for breakfast.
We stayed at the Hotel Glo Kluuvi across the road and this was a good breakfast option

We were staying in the Glo hotel, just opposite this famous cafe and decided to visit there on our last evening. We both ordered the famous hot chocolate, my husband had extra whipped cream in his. We also ordered two sandwiches , which was expensive but we couldnt decide which to have. Only a little earlier in the day we had had afternoon tea with cakes so could not justify eating the very tempting cakes, or equally delicious looking ice cream. Afterwards we looked round the chocolates on display but had indulged ourselves enough so did not buy any. They would make excellent gifts for oneself or for friends.
