Good value, well-made and filling Finnish traditional/home food dishes during the long lunch hours (daily menu on Facebook every morning), big portions and surprisingly popular among the creative crowd and professionals nearby. If you eat outside on the terrace don't leave your plate for a...second or the seagulls will finish your lunch.More

Ihana, pieni lounaspaikka Kalliossa. Lounaslista luettavissa päivittäi. Facebookista tai kyltistä kahvilan ulkopuolella. Tiskillä myynnissä itse koottava salaatti, erilaisia leivonnaisia ja täytettyjä leipiä lämpimän lounaan lisäksi. Ihanan mukava henkilökunta! Love this little cafe in Kallio. The lunch menu can be found daily on Facebook or from...the stand outside. You can choose your own salad, get warm lunch or buy ready filled sweet and salty ”deli” food from the cafe. Just perfect for lunch and the staff is very friendly.More

This is a nice place to have a reasonable lunch or breakfast. Small but cozy. For lunch you can have pasta, salads, soup and so on. Price is quite reasonable, under 10 euro and you can have a coffee, tea for 1, 5euro when you...buy lunch. Cakes and buns looked very delicious too.More

Visited just by coincidence as my daughter was waking up in the corners while we were walking by. Went in for a lunch and at first I was going to go for the green chicken pasta but at the end went with the salad. There...are salads with 2 or 3 extras in it. Got mine with salmon and goat cheese and it was awesome!More

A nice break from central Helsinki. Big and fantastic cakes and cookies. A good vegan option as well.

The cafe Cardemumma is worthwhile to visit. When I moved to Helsinki I moved to a opposite building to the cafe. The surroundings is lively nowadays. To the CAFE! Excellent natural service. Good coffee and 2 very tasty and fresh strawberries coaked in chocolate sitting...outside. The place to follow what happens in this corner and memorizing the past.More

This place is cozy, yes. The location is good (we stayed on Airbnb across the street) but the staff is extremely rude and non-service orientated. Seems like having a bad day. Bakery is ok, again nothing special and prices I guess were ok (for finland)....Cinnamon roll was nice but not as nice as the ones you get in Sweden. A bit dry. Chai latte was nice and coffee ok. We learned not to expect much from Finnish cafe’s so this I guess is the same value as the rest. We saw they had lunch but it didn’t look too inviting and we learned to not have lunch at Finnish cafes. Place, like all the cafes in the area was full of smelly hippies as Kallio is the most hippie (and not hipster like we were mislead) neighborhood of Helsinki (and aren’t they all).More

Good place to have a coffee, or breakfast, or even brunch. Some light lunch can also be possible. Not the best service though.
