Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I recently had an unfortunate experience at this restaurant. The staff were incredibly rude and unwelcoming, making me feel uncomfortable from the moment I walked in. I stopped by for an early dinner and needed help charging my phone, but the staff seemed disinterested and...unhelpful. Even asking for the Wi-Fi password felt intimidating due to their attitude. This was unfortunately not an isolated incident, as I've noticed a pattern of unfriendly service in Finland's cafes and restaurants. Overall, I left the restaurant feeling frustrated and disappointed by the lack of hospitality and courtesy. Also the Kana Feta Salad I ordered had so much vinegar that had to sip some water every now and then. A sour Euro 16.More

This sympathetic cafe with a French atmosphere is located next to the Töölö marketplace. Since 1994, this cafe has been a warm and homely living room for breakfasts, lunches, etc. In the memory of old times, we enjoyed after-dinner drinks here. You can also wash...your laundry here.More

The outdoor setting is great👌🏼☀️. But oh so disappointing that a salad ordered on the terrace costs 2,60e more than when ordered indoors😤. Friend ordered inside for this very reason and got salty service for it (and was told to wait indoors for her salad...and take it outside herself). This is enough to not make a return. Very disappointing 👎🏼More

Visited with a couple of friends on a monday morning. The place is nice and cosy, and its located in the heart of Töölö. The breakfast was around 10 euros and I was happy with my meal! Quite normal finnish style breakfast that wont leave...you hungry :)More

Cozy and nice-looking, great food and fair prices. A good place to chill. It was pretty full on Sunday at brunch time.

A nice place to have coffee or meet up with friends. Very handy for Scandic Park Hotel. Weirdly also has a washing machine in the back so customers sometimes come and do their washing while having a meal or a drink.

I needed a place where I can work, do my laundry and eat breakfast. And it's exactly the spot I needed. Decent prices, awesome quiche and wonderful pastries. If you find yourself with the same needs you should go give it a try.

we needed to do a couple of loads of laundry before heading to Estonia and did not have time to send it out. Our hotel told us about this place. We walked there mid morning. They told us we should have made a reservation for...the washer and dryer, but we got lucky and it was available for the next 2 hours. The machines are in the back corner so out of the way a bit. Coffee and bakery were good, beer was as well!More

Something here for a little breakfast of coffee in a sandwich and the cafe made me feel like I was in one I've been to in Paris. Just that very relaxing local vibe with good coffee and conversation. Stop by if you're in the area...and need a cup of coffee!More

In the Tolo area (tram 8), this delightful little cafe has full dinners, lots of desserts, selections of coffee teas and adult beverages, as well a real laundry - its only one washer and one dryer, but this is a great place to do your...clothes and enjoy the experience - cafe has a great history lesson tied to some comic strips (look it up!)More

If you wish to have a good basic breakfast, this is the place to go. Good value for money, and many options to choose from. However, the place might get quite crowded and noisy in rush hours.

Very unpleasant staff, angry and annoyed. Looks like they had never smiled in their life. Cakes are plain and boring. Really expensive. The whole place smells like cabbage.. maybe because there is laundry service in the same place. Very loud and full of old people...who push you when you carry your own stuff to the table. Will not come back and will not recommend others. No idea what the reputation is for. Maybe Finns never been to a good cafe and nice service. Zero points from us.More
