Arrived here after a long walk around the southern edge of the city and it was a very welcome sight. Large windows look out onto the sea which is only a few metres away. Good selection of smorgasbord style food with delicious coffee and hot chocolate. Friendly and helpful staff, very fast wi-fi and comfy seating. The ideal place to relax and recharge after some exercise. Popular with locals.

Most scenic location for a cafe....

The menu is good as well, except that the being a self service place, one cannot look forward to being served.

Very courteous and helpful staff at the counters can guide you to local specialities..

Wonderful coffee place that gives you a good finnish feel. Coffee is like typical finnish coffee, strong and a lot. The cakes were very yummy.

We had an amazing sun set to promote our pleasant getting together with friendly and lively discussions. Cafe Ursula was a perfect place for that with excellent coffee and fascinating breads and sweet cakes.

Cafe Ursula has been around since the Olympic Games were held in Helsinki in 1952. At that time it was a one of a kind experience in a city that was still recovering from the war, an outdoor cafe located at a beautiful spot by the sea shore. Today there are dozens of similar outdoor cafes at fine locations in Helsinki but Ursula is still among the favourites of the locals and the growing number of tourists visiting Helsinki and wandering on the shoreline of the city. The scenery is still just as stunning as it was in 1952 and in general the offerings are very good, though not cheap. However, the daily lunch is a good bargain. As in all similar locations when enjoying the services outdoors during the summer months you will need to be prepared to the greedy birds that are very quick in stealing anything from your plate. Also, later in the summer you are bound to have the company of the wasps that are hunting for anything sweet, also inside the cafe where all the bakery items for sale are kept on open tables or baskets. This may feel somewhat unpleasant but the fresh air and exceptional sea view towards the Suomenlinna fortress and other islands on the coastline should offset the negative experience.
