After a fantastic long wintery walk around Helsinki during the first snows of January, we stopped here for nibbles and drinks near the roaring fire pit. A classic Helsinki institution, always packed.

This cafeteria is so charming that I visited it again. Every seat at the terrace has nice sea view. This is like countryside in the city. They even have some rocking chairs. You see an old milk churn stand there, too. They also have a...campfire site but you may not bring your own sausages. You can buy meat sausages or soy sausages from the cafeteria. My lemon cheese cake was extremely delicious and my friend loved blueberry pie. By the way, the cafeteria has Supregatta service, too. They have SUP boards, canoes, kayaks and a rowing boat to rent.More

We really enjoyed the location and the walk here. The coffee wasn't our favourite so I wouldn't be hoping to find a coffee 'like home' here. I still think it's worth the walk.

A nice traditional coffee place near the sea. Very pleasant when sunny in all seasons , together with a hot chocolate / coffee and buns. Only downside to any coffee near the sea : the seagulls, an annoyance when having food and they have spotted...it.More

This cafe is featured in almost every guide, or vlog, about Helsinki. We went there on a cold but sunny winter, weekday afternoon and the queue to get in was just crazy. There was a sign asking people not to block the doorway, but nobody...was paying attention! It was clear we would not get in, and it was too cold to be outside so we aborted. I hate to think what it is like in summer!More

Small, heritage and classical joint. Unfortunately due to rain and cold the outside section was closed but still this place has its own charm. Inside is cozy and has it walls filled with ancient writings, comments and feedbacks. Must visit
