One of the best places in Helsinki to chill, read your book and have a coffee or two (accompanied with a delicious doughnut).
You can have a free refill with a return of 5 cents per cup!
Friendly staff and atmosphere and the most important is that its dog friendly. This means that during summer you can stay in the cozy terrace by the sea. During winter time you can stay with the dog inside even though its really small (it is very difficult to find dog friendly place in Finland).
You can also rent kayak if you feel brave!

I went for the first time to Regatta in december 2010 in the middle of a snow storm and I just loved it. It was love at first sight. The location is incredible as it is close to the sea and the atmosphere is just unique. Imagine to see a small warm wooden house with incredible decorations in the middle of a snow storm...it s just magical. I came back several time and in particular three days ago and in summer it has the same magical atmosphere as in winter. Just lovely. And the cinnamon buns are the best I have ever tried!!

We came here with our bike tour, it was the scheduled stop. It is a cute little cabin with lots of space to sit outside. They serve pretty basic stuff for a local cafe shop: Bread with cheese and salmon or something savory, cinnamon rolls, etc. If you end up there it is worth a visit but I wouldn't plan a schedule around it.

We decided to pop in here for a cuppa and a cinnamon bun as we knew it was close to the Sibelius monument. How pleased we were that we did!
Only filter coffee available (but that's not unusual in Helsinki) but a refillable cup and those buns!! They were delicious, light and flavoursome but not too heavy on the cinnamon . Sat at the edge of the water drinking in the views and the lovely cuppa.
Well worth a detour, even if you don't visit the monument.
Oh, and you can buy a sausage in the café and BBQ it yourself on an open wood burner.
