Description: Ekberg is a Finnish artisan bakery and pâtisserie operating its own production since 1852. Quality, expertise and passion are the fundamental cornerstones of Ekberg’s activity. Fresh bread and buns are baked six days a week in our bakery on the welcoming street of Bulevardi, in the heart of Helsinki. Our product range follows today’s trends and varies according to the seasons. Our pâtisserie makes delicious cakes and pastries while our kitchen serves enjoyable food. Ekberg’s selection includes traditional delicacies, such as excellent French macaroons and Champagne corks, as well as new, seasonally varying products. We look forward to seeing you soon, you are warmly welcome to Ekberg!

We whizzed past this place on the bus tour. The audio guide said it was the oldest cafe/konditori in Helsinki. Any excuse to have a cake and I am there. The decor is Finnish art nouveau and it still has the old wooden in out doors, very charming. The buffet was very popular, but as vegetarians we opted for a mushroom quiche with salad, a baguette with mozzarella, strawberries and melon, shared a cinnamon apple cake topped with meringue with really good coffee. Definitely worth a visit!

This cafe is rather expensive with pastries costing more than 5 Euros or sandwiches up to 15 Euros. The price of the breakfast buffet, in comparison to these prices, is reasonable taking into account what is served: good choice of breads, ham, cheese, salmon, porridge, eggs, juice, cereals, yoghurt and pastries. Coffee included in the price, 17,80€ in the weekends. Very popular and crowded. A good experience!

This lovely cafe is one of the oldest cafes in Helsinki. It is located on a street called Boulevard and walking distance from the centre. It has very nice athmosphere with table service the old fashioned way. If you want to relax in a sophisticated surrounding this is the place to be. Next to the cafe they have their bakery, so you can also buy delicatessen home/hotel.

One of my favourite breakfast places in Helsinki. It has gotten quite expensive but it's still very much worth it.
Fresh pastries, cold cuts, porridge, yogurt, bread, cakes and of course coffee and tea. Excellent stuff.

Staff can give you a bit of a cold shoulder sometimes, but just shrug it off. Elegant surroundings and newspapers available while you're sipping your coffee.

Breakfast tends to be very crowded.

Good location. Delicious pastries. Perhaps before there were waiters but when I was, it was self-service. This is very handy if you hurry somewhere.
