I have been before John for Rwanda is a very nice man. Visited now January 2020 and the shop is no longer there. Sad

Small and cousy place with one of the best latte in town. Very good and smily service. Really recommend it!

My favorite coffee shop in Helsinki. Always extremely friendly staff and good coffee. Really comfortable chairs and enough space between tables.
