“One of the Classics is Helsinki”
Reviewed June 24, 2014

Fazer Cafe is one of the true Helsinki landmarks and a classical place to meet people. Excellent breakfast, known for its bakery products and chocolate. Always worth a trip. The only challenge is that the place is frequently quite crowded.

“A must in Helsinki!”
Reviewed June 11, 2014

Situated right in the city center of Helsinki, the Karl Fazer café is a must. It opens early so you could have breakfast there. They also serve lunch. However, the brand Fazer is mostly known for its chocolates in Scandinavian countries, so you should try the excellent pastries. The coffee is excellent too. You can purchase some of the pastries, the Finnish rye bread and the Fazer confectionary at the café too. You can sit outside during summer, but inside, please try to sit under beautiful cupola.

“Perfect place to sample”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

Because this place is a cafeteria, it was perfect for sampling the local foods. We visited here with a local friend and enjoyed small tastes from their selection. Yes, it was expensive from a US perspective, but it's Finland.

“Great soup lunch buffet”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Their soup buffet with delicious fresh bread is very good and worth the price. On Thursdays there is also pancake (Thursday is a Pea Soup day) with jam, but they charge extra for it, which I do not understand as usually pancake goes together with the pea soup without extra charge. They should stop charging for it
