Such a beautiful spot. The cinnamon buns and carrot cake were perfection. Sitting back, savouring these delicious treats, the sun on our face in a beautiful surrounding was nothing short of heaven for me.

Its just a coffee shop? Ok, it looks cute, and yes there is outside seating. But it was freeing and nowhere to sit inside. The coffee was fine but nothing special?

Simple and easygoing cafe - we loved the detais and decorations of cafe! Best "kahvi ja korvapuusti" in town (they used to have free (or some cents worth) coffee refil, which was for me back then as a student amazing!) Everytime I visit Helsinki, this...is a must! Our tradition is: put a head in one of Sibellius monument pipe, and then grab a coffee. After 10 years, still fooling around and getting in love with Finland even more! 💙🤍More

The cafe was a short walk from the closest tram stop and is easy to get to. The place is very quaint but be aware you can only sit outside. Even in March when it was -4c it was still nice to sit around the...fire pit chatting to other tourists. The cinnamon buns were a treat - this place was very cute and I can only imagine it’s lovely in the summer monthsMore

We came here for a hot drink and cake. I was impressed they had so many vegan and gluten-free options on the menu which were great. I had a vegan hot chocolate and cinnamon bun. It was lovely to warm up by the fire and...it's a unique experience (to us Brits anyway) to be able to buy sausages and cook them ourselves!More

I managed to visit Cafe Regatta twice during a 2 week stay in Finland. The first visit was to try the hot chocolate and cinnamon buns (heavenly !) And the second was for more hot chocolate and to roast a sausage over the fire before...flying home. I will return!More

A Helsinki classic. Definitely a must-visit! The hot chocolate is delicious and the buns are big and tasty. Especially in winter, it's particularly atmospheric. You can warm yourself in front of an open fire and enjoy the wonderful winter of Finland.

If you don't walk too much, bus 24 goes nearest, starts from Mannerheimintie (on the other side of Sokos hotel/department store when you come from the railway station). Like previous answerer wrote, easiest maybe for you to... More
