It was a perfect place to stop for a cup of coffee having walked around in the cold and windy city. The interior was cosy and there were a good number of chairs to choose from. The service was nice and friendly.

What a nice discovery. Love those places: great vegan food and deserts, good coffee and many small eclectic tables and comfy couches. The place is not so easy to find, but worth going to relax and warm up on a cold day!

I ordered aeropressed Ethiopian coffee, desribed sweet and full-flavored (there were three to choose from and this was the first one on the list). Here is what I got. I had to go back to counter to ask the barista is there something wrong but he tasted it and said everything is in order. It tasted like water, as somebody... More

We visited here for the first time and it was so cosy! There was a blizzard outside and that's why it was even nicer to go to this cute café. Its great place for reading or just hanging with friends. Warm atmosphere and smiling staff! Good coffee, tasty hot chocolate and yummy treats. Don't forget to try their raw chocolate... More

A cool café that also can function as a place to bring your laptop and work. looks like a hip refurbished factory place with mixed retro furniture, which gives it an urban chic look. The cafés specialities is their coffées, which are served in multiple choices of preparation methods. Also serves sandwiches and pastries.

Johan and Nystrom in Stockholm is my favourite place to drink coffee and watch people coming by. Johan and Nystrom in Helsinki is also amazing. Great location, wonderful interior design, delicious coffee and yummy food: buns, raw cakes and sandwiches are just amazing.

Try it in any kind of preparation and you can just feel bitter taste. Nothing else because coffee is over roasted and cup for lattt is too large. Please do not roast so much!

My title sums this establishment up but I can elaborate. I've been passing by this cafe for months on my way to and from work and during a recent early walk to work I decided to finally go check out this interesting looking cafe. First thing was a friendly welcome and then my curiosity was caught by a pastry that... More

Yes the coffee is great. They sure know their way with Italian style machine coffee. And the food dishes look wonderful too (we only had coffe so cant judge), but we love it for the athmosphere. Everyone laid back, working, reading or busy talking to eachother in this wonderful well designed living room style lounge. Definately worth my third visit... More

Very cool funky coffee house on waterfront serving delicious coffee and the most superb lingonberry cheese cake. Big retro furnishings, lights, seats etc, all very bohemian and Scandinavia. Loos bit tatty, but overall a very nice gaff.

Thank manxboy
