Walking into this cafe is transcendent. It opens early - at 7:30am - and is a great spot for people-watching. It's fancy, and a treat, but it's worth it with the wide glass windows and open layout. It's fun to just listen to all the activity. Sampling the meats and cheeses at the buffet is fun and it feels like... More

Legendary Finnish candy-pastry manufacturer Fazer runs this flag ship store, great to buy chocolates, taste a traditional wiineri with a coffee, or warm up with a hot chocolate and a cinnamon bun

My husband and I were staying at the GLO hotel which is opposite the Fazer Cafe, so we popped in to their for lunch. The food is all delicious but it is all cold food, and on a cold -15 degrees day you sometimes want hot food! But nonetheless definitely stop in and try one of the savoury and pastry... More

This classical café is a must when in Helsinki. Friendly and efficient and great service. Enjoyed the pea soup and pancakes. Massive variety of cakes and savory stuff, as well. Enjoy!

Fazer are famous for their Chocolates and you get to try and buy then here in the store. We actually went in there a few times as it was directly across from the hotel that we stayed in. We have break fast and lunch here, which can either come in the form of a buffet type menu, or you can... More

We often come here for lunch when we visit Helsinki as it's very reasonable and good food. Then we can stock up on our chocolate supplies until our next visit

When your sweet tooth begins to itch in Helsinki, head here. Faze is a classical, legendary place to grab some sweet things with coffee&tea. Centrally located, beautiful interior and most extensive selection of sweet things.

A welcome and almost daily stop in this amazingly central cafe. We clearly made a good choice as it was always busy regardless of the time of day. The delish hot chocolates were served in cups that can only be described as bowls due to their size. And the coffee, that was almost as good... The staff were able to... More

Looking for a place to have breakfast in central Helsinki? Try the Fazer Cafe! The price for the buffet is fair and the cafe itself is located inside a beautiful room. Food quality and coice is very good, too.
