Probably the best coffee in town. A cosy cafe where you can sit and relax, friendly staff and a nice selection of treats. Popular among local coffee lovers.

Very good coffee, excellent choice of brewing methods and a clear explanation on the beans used. Lunch menu looked good. Plenty of people had lunch. We didn't.

Quality exceptional staff. In busy periods maintain composure and you do not feel stressed as a customer at all. The young girl with the red bun was fantastic and great at what she does, very calm aura. Classic nice street views.

We enjoyed good coffees but...they totally forgot our sandwiches even though we reminded them. "It did go into our system for some reason" is not a good enough excuse for a place like this. We got sandwiches way later with a lame "sorry about that"....More

Lunch was a tad expensive (€13.90) for lamb meatballs (4x huge ones), fresh and refreshing salad, and bread (all on the same plate). Unlike other lunch buffet deals for around the same price around the city, this cafe offered no coffee or salad bar. I'm...More

Great place to stop on a cold afternoon. Coffee is fine, and the atmosphere is a bit unusual. The ladies who run it....are very friendly and helpful. It's about five minutes from the shopping district and easily found.

THE place to go for if you're a coffee geek. I also highly recommend their cafés at Aleksanterinkatu (La Torre) and in Kamppi shopping center. Great lunch as well, but always full.

Great coffee. Didn't have anything else, but the snacks and ice cream looked good. They serve salad and smoothies as well.

Fratello Torrefazione is a third wave coffee shop; by knowing our supply chain we can guarantee the quality and taste of our coffees. All of our baristas have taken a barista exam, they both know how to make coffee but also the story behind each of our coffees. To us, a great cup of coffee is a piece of art and all the steps on the beans way to the cup are important.
