Good coffee, good salads. DO NOT GO HERE TO DO YOUR LAUNDRY. Although they advertise this as a place to do your wash they have only one tiny, very slow, somewhat expensive machine. If you think this'll be a great combo of laundry and coffee you'll be sorely disappointed.

“An Europian oasis in the heart of the city”
Reviewed 7 October 2007

Tin Tin Tango by the Töölö Square is a true oasis for anyone who wishes to get away from all the streamlined and industrialized Wayne's/Robert's/Coffee Houses that seem to pop up in every corner.

It's a bit off route for the typical tourist, if you're just stopping by for the attractions, but just some 100 meters away from the tram stop of N:o 3 and defininely worth a visit.

Tin Tin Tango has a wide variety of breakfeasts and serves pastries, bread and sandwiches of many kinds - along with a nice setup off coffees and teas. And yes, they grind their own coffee. On weekdays you can pop in at 7 in the morning for your casual cup of coffee - or perhaps a prolonged breakfeast/brunch along with a bottle of wine or something a bit sturdier (full alcoholic rights). And on weekends the place is open until 2 AM - a popular place for drinking a few beers.

The atmposphere is genuinly European, with a Finnish twist. You can admire paintings portraying the famous comic book character in sometimes quite surprising surroundings or some of the temporary galleries, while listening to tangos, chansons or classical music. Tin Tin Tango attracts an international range of customers and is popular among the cultural crowd. The place isn't exactly cheap, but neither do prices hit the roof. Breakfeast, for examples ranges in between 6 and 10 euros. And the surroundings are just enough ragged for one not to feel out of place in a pair of jeans and a soddy t-shirt.

Tin Tin Tango also sports a laundry, a sauna and a glassed in, roofed terrace for smokers.

Thumbs up!

“I'm Loving It!”
Reviewed 2 September 2004

Oh My God I love Tin Tin Tango. I live in Töölö, so it's just around the corner.
The best thing about Tin Tin Tango is it's breakfasts and atmosphere. These are best experienced in the morning.
There is REALLY NOTHING BETTER than a Tin Tin Tango french breakfast in a cold Sunday morning.
Be smart and go to Tin Tin Tango when you're in Helsinki.
