One of the oldest and well known cafes in the city center with a great atmosphere, always warm and cozy, popular and busy serving excellent lattes and cakes and sandwiches. It is in the middle of everything in Helsinki. If you are in the mood for a snack and want to taste something really Finnish try the dark rye bread with smoked salmon or egg sandwich. It is also one of the nicest places to meet up with friends or to take a break after a long day of shopping.

If there's one thing that Fazer Cafe can be relied upon to do and do it well, it's their consistent high standards in everything - from fresh, healthy & slightly exotic looking salads, 3 types of Finnish soup favourites and dessert selection to the impeccable (yet seasonally changed) decor and über friendly, patient service. Oh, and you can't walk away without a dose of their artery-clogging but oh-so- delectable hot choc (mit sahne oder ohne)... It's an institution ! (( this is my 5th or 6th visit in as many trips to Helsinki))

Great atmosphere, a truly traditional place to enjoy a cup of coffee and a delicious pastry. Loads of tourists though. Breakfast is a good deal on weekdays.

One of the old cafes in Helsinki. Tradition. Beautiful arched cafe room, auditively interesting. Just go to the inner part of the cafe with your sweet cakes - the tables in front are nothing special. Also a shop selling Fazer chocolates.
