Well located cafe in walking area of Yliopistonkatu near Hansa shopping quarter. Good selection of tasty bakings, average coffee drinks and salad bar to choose and customize a fresh salad.

The size of the buns and cookies are enormous. You can easily slice the bun on muffin with your friend and still have enough to eat with coffee. Muffins with white chocolate and berries is highly recommended.

This place saved us cos we were looking for a place, which opens early on the weekend. Brahe cafes open at 9 a.m. and that may be really helpful. I've been there twice and there were some people in it, so I guess, this place is popular in Turku. The sandwiches were good, but overprices and I've got stomachache after... More

The special coffees are over priced, not at all worth the money. But at least one can "enjoy" them outside as there is a small terrace.

There is a small terrace with tables and chairs outside, even in winter time when it is freezing... More

Smoke travels easily to tables nearby and irritates non-smokers. I agree with you that should have been presented in courteous manner and tackfully. My sincere apologies, Also exemption should have been made for you, since out terrace... More

The dessert are really big... and very sugary. It is quite pricy, but you can easily share a muffin with someone else, as it is big, and as I already said, very sweet.

This place has huge muffins, cakes and other sweet pastries (also salads, sandwiches...), too big for one (well maybe muffins and some cakes are ok) but ideal for sharing. Coffees are great. Place on Yliopistonkatu is quite small and often packed but there is another one in Thalia nearby. This smaller place is cosy, Thalia is very noisy and not... More
