Very cute caffe. It’s like a time machine in the 1940th. Lovely pies and cakes. It a real great place after a walk around.

I ordered carrot cake which was stale. The girl serving was sullen and rude and did not offer a replacement or my money back. Service was also very slow. I would not recommend this cafe.

It feels like time has stopped here, it’s so traditional and very vintage. Lovely place to stop for a drink and a break from walking around suomenlina

There is no English breakfast tea at this place! but there is all other flavours so I went for the most plain sounding one and it was pleasantly okay. The mugs are MASSIVE so you do get a lot, luckily there is a toilet in...there to use before you head off! There didn't seem to be that much food on display to offer guests so I just went for a 1 Euro cookie and it was nice enough. Overall it was okay.More

Cozy interior in a cute old villa. Standard coffee and OK cakes. Too expensive, but well, it's on Sveaborg, so I guess it's fine. Dog friendly.

Stopped here for morning tea after arriving on Suomenlinna. Had a cafe latte and a cute heart shaped coffee which I enjoyed whilst sitting on the the balcony. This place has character and such a lovely feel to it. The people who own it are...very warm and welcoming.More

Small cafe, cakes and hot drinks with a bit cold customer service. Asked to make my tea a bit stronger and was charged extra for it. Never heard her say thank you...

This is a cute little place to get warm with a hot drink after exploring Suomenlinna. However, the service is extremely poor. The two girls are so slow it makes you wonder if it’s on purpose. While we were queueing many people turned around and...left the shop, which in the hindsight is what we should have done, too.More
