“The best cafe in Helsinki”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

This cafe has a long history. It is one of the best cafe's of the city.
They have a long culture to make cakes and pastries etc.
Tea's and coffees are also good. Fazer as a trade mark is one of the well known finnish trade marks in the Scandinavia, Russia and Baltics. It is a large family owned company.
High quality cafeteria. I could recommend that warmly.

“Feast for the eyes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Displays of luscious looking cakes, cinnamon buns and the famous Fazer chocolates. Stop for an unhurried cup of coffee or minty hot chocolate and treat yourself to some of the sweet or savoury offerings. This place can get quite busy.

“Great location and good coffee”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Been there several times and always happy. Last time (20.9.2013) I had a quick bite of shrimp salad. It was average and a bit pricey for value. Normally I just take coffee and some bakery and they are good. Great location in the middle of the shopping streets and open until dawn.

“Great location & history, if a little pricey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

I guess you pay for what you get.

Helsinki's Fortnum & Masons is a great comparison and open till 11pm from memory.

Good ice cream, coffee and chocolate.

What more could you want?
