The warm wine and hot chocolate really hit the spot and was one of the best we had in Finland. I would recommend the cafe as a must visit in Helsinki to all of my... More

It is not a big place but inviting for all of us in the cue, there has everytime been a table free for us inside or outdoors together with the bird hotel inhabitants.

My favorite cafe in my hometown Helsinki. Absolutely hilarious. Warm, welcoming and yet a bit crazy - you have to see the furnishings to believe it. Reasonable prices and a lovely staff. Open every day and as long as there are customers.
