“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Such a nice and cozy Finnish cottage style Cafe. It really takes you away from the city hazzle. You can sit inside or go outside with a blanket and drink your coffee next to a fire. Very nice and hospitable staff. We drank coffees and ate cinnamon buns that were fresh from the oven! And if you want another cup of coffee, it only costs 5 cents. Great place to visit all year round!

“Only cash accepted - one in the kind”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I am food tour guide in Helsinki and try to show my customers best places in Helsinki. I had foreign visitors from Turku and we decided to go to cafe Regatta.
I forgot that they don´t accept any card - you can always pay with card except here.

Thanks to very good customer service we got Karelian pies and cinnamon bons, coffee and hot chokolates in a cold winter day. This place is nominated as a entrepreneur of the year and with a good reason. Thank you for you patience, I paid my bill 1 month later :)

“I love Regatta”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

My favorite cafe in Helsinki, but also probably in the world. This charming little jewel stands on the perfect spot just between the Baltic sea and Sibelius garden. Regatta has an open terrace which is open all year long, and sometimes you can see swans and ducks just besides you. The staff has always been friendly, and they bake the best korvapusti, or traditional Finnish cinnamon rolls.

“Excellent and unusual venue”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

One of the best coffee shops in town. Prices are very affordable and the venue is more than great. There are outdoor seating, garden and some seats inside as well. Service is excellent and warm.

“Fab Cafe”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is probably the best coffee shop / cafe that I have ever been into. Compact and cosy, excellent pastry's cooked on the premises and wonderful coffee. Outside was a log fire pit. Very friendly welcome. A Jewel in the crown for Helsinki
