“Good place to meet friends or business partners”
Reviewed 2 June 2013

Gran Delicato is one of the best cafes in Helsinki with a very unique atmosphere. The coffee is excellent and the sandwiches and salads are excellent lunch/afternoon snacks. It is usually quite full, but I've always found a table really fast since the cafe has a lot of seats.

The place doesn't work very well for confidential discussions, but for casual meetings and discussions the atmosphere is very good. Especially women seem to really like the place nowadays.

Great staff, good food, delicious coffee. Try some of the ciabatta breads with a cup of house blend coffee.

“A Sandwich Doesn't Get Any Better”
Reviewed 11 April 2013

Tasty and fresh! All 'real' ingredients. Excellent bread - not an easy thing to find in Finland where non-rye is involved. (an aside: Finnish Rye is EXCELLENT except for some lunatics starting to put sugar in their recipes)

Gran Delicato has two places - the original on Kalevankatu - NW area of 'downtown' - and on the Esplanade (#33 - not #29 as their website might show) - in a small mall smack in the center of 'downtown'. Prices are very reasonable-

It really makes one wonder how one could eat a Subway concoctios after realizing here what a sandwich CAN be. Salads nice but could hope they'd chuck the iceberg and replace with Romaine which is now readily available in Finland.
