We went there for lunch after a tip from Finnish friends. Qulma has two buffet on offer: one soup buffet and one potato buffet. Both are all you can eat formula. We went for the soup buffet which came in at 9,90 euro a person (water and coffee/tea included), being a very fair price for Helsinki. There was Squash 'n Lime, Salmon Solyanka (Russian style) and Lamb-Beef soup (more asian style). They were all delicious! There are several things to add to the soup (pumpkin seeds, jalapeno peppers, cream...).

Marc, the owner, is really nice too. Atmosphere is simple but nice, with newspaper articles of the place filling up the walls.

Good stuff. Recommended!

So healthy but so good. We had hangovers from a heavy night out so really wanted a fry-up but was so glad we went here and were forced the healthy food here. So tasty and lots to choose from at the buffet. Loved it

For a light lunch and sympathetic surroundings taste the delicious soups (at least three different ones - and you can take as many bowls as you want!), or a salad or sandwich plate at Qulma, in the centre of Helsinki not far from the Market Square and Senate Square. The price is moderate, coffee or tea included - but no desserts, just muffins or small cakes. Note that it is only open until 15.00 and the soups are served until 14.30.

A stall holder in the market recommended Qulma, and we were so pleased we took his advice! You get as much soup and bread as you can eat, plus a coffee, for 9 Euros - we had a bowl full of all three soups, and each one was delicious. There are also sandwiches and cakes. Marc was really friendly and the general atmosphere is jolly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Helsinki.

You can not miss this place! I love Marc´s soups, salads, sandwiches, everything! Quite busy during lunch time, be on time as it gets bit crowded. Take a soup buffet or combo with sandwich or salad. Menu changes daily and is published on their FB-site.

I still not have managed to try their brunch but as far as I am aware, there pretty much "sold out" every Saturday.

Chocolate cupcakes they make every now and then are do die for. Prices are good and staff is very friendly. Do not miss this place!
