Cafe Roasberg is a relatively well-known cafe in Helsinki, located at Rautatientori square. With its good location, this cafe gained popularity and whenever you go there you can see a bunch of customers inside. It is surely a "fine" cafe but it is hard to...say that it deserves its fame.
I had a cappuccino and a slice of blueberry cheesecake. Cappuccino was great, smooth like I wanted which is rare in Helsinki, where most of the cafes use stronger beans and therefore have bitter coffees. With its 4.30 euro price tag, it is slightly above the Helsinki average, but not an important difference to mention. However, I can't be so positive about blueberry cheesecake. A really small slice of cheesecake costs 7 euros and it wasn't good at all. It was too sweet and lacked the balance that you would like to find in a cheesecake.
In addition to that, the place itself isn't really attractive too. It doesn't have a unique character, which is an important aspect to me regarding cafes.
One of two good points that I can make is service quality. The staff was friendly and service was fast enough.
In the end, Cafe Roasberg is an average cafe with high prices. With its good location it might seem attractive but consider crowdedness and high prices as well.More
