This is now called Qulma. Set a few streets back from the Harbour it's well worth seeking out. We had a great welcome and it was a quiet spot for lunch.
For €10.50 we had a buffet of various tasty salads and a choice of...3 excellent soups with bread. For dessert there was watermelon. Great value, tasty and unusual.More
I have to say that this little cafe/restaurant was quite the find. It’s €10.50 for the buffet that includes soups, salad, tea, coffee bread.
Choice of 3 tasty soups and different types of salad. We tasted everything and it was all yummy. I’d strongly recommend....The premises name is actually “Qulma”. We found it harder to find looking for “Damir Gadimov”.More
At the Qulma lunch buffet you'll stuff your belly with oven roasted potatoes (with side), salad, homemade bread and one of the three soups served. The food is tasty and fresh.
They've stuck to their concept that works. The value for money is great!
Went to see my old friend Marc Aulen, "The Soup Man" and to enjoy a plate full of excellent soup for lunch. As excellent as it has always been, so Marc can expect to see me there during the summer several times and with my...little miniature poodle "Pumpkin". The daily soups, accompanied with nice salad table and some tofu, are delicious and the feeling in this place is relaxed and home like. Marc's latest book, "The Helsinki Book", is worth of buying, as it gives you advises of where to eat in Helsinki, when you want to have good food and relaxed atmosphere (not fine dining). Try this place out and buy the best Helsinki restaurant guide and more, that you can find.More
Qulma is a great place (near the Lutheran cathedral and the University of Helsinki) for a visitor to experience a Finnish workers' lunch buffet. In order to appreciate it, you have to understand that it isn't a regular restaurant, nor a chic cafe; it is...a work-a-day place for those who work in the neighborhood to get an efficient, nutritious, inexpensive lunch. I really liked it on those terms. The 10.50 buffet includes 3 soups with toppings, baked potatoes, salad bar, homemade bread and homemade hummus, and coffee or tea. The homemade bread and hummus are outstanding; the salad bar is probably the weak point. When I visited, one soup and one salad option contained pork but most of the food was vegan. Go early: Finns tend to eat lunch on the early side, and Qulma closes by mid-afternoon.More
I visited Qulma for lunch and it was really good! The price is 10,5 € and it included owen potatoes, three kind of soups and toppings, little salad and self made bread! You can eat as much as you like. I didn't try potatoes but...soups, salad and bread tasted great! Also the waiter was very friendly. It wasn't a typical buffet-type lunch and the place was quite small and cozy inside.More
One of my favorite brunches in Helsinki. Nice selection of food. More like lunch than breakfast, and I like it! Especially their fish dishes are great. I've been missing their great mint pesto - hope it'll be on the menu soon again.
We went there for brunch on a Saturday and were really really disappointed. There was not a single breakfast item like eggs, rolls, cheese, jam or anything else. Unfortunately we had to pay before entering the buffet, otherwise we would have just left right away....There was only vegetarian lunch food (bulgur salad, regular lettuce, sweet potatoes, salad of feta, tomatoes and olives and oven-baked tomatoes with bell pepper and cheese). Also a red beets salad and hummus, combined with dry rye bread. No butter, honey, or anything else to put on the dry bread... The vegetarian dishes were very tasty, but it's definitely no breakfast food! The only thing counting as breakfast food were cold pancakes. Very very disappointing...More
