“Delicious ciabattas”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

We actually were eating in the Kämp center Gran Delicato, but I didn't find a page of their own.

We were staying in the Glo Kluuvi hotel, which is in the same building. And since we didn't have a breakfast booked with our hotel we came here to eat.

We loved the parma ham, basil chiabatta - it was so delicious. Some hot tea and a sweets and our breakfast was complete.

Good and fast service, nice cashier will make any asked alterations to the chiabattas.

“Great lunch or coffee stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2013

A great stop for a sandwich and a coffee. Look out for the English menu's by the till. Wide range of baguettes and ciabatta's with cheeses, meats and salad. Also has a pasta and soup of the day which are popular with the lunchtime locals. The warren of rooms encourages you to stop and savour, you can curl up with a book, or just watch life go by on the street outside.

“Our favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We visit Gran Delicato multiple times a year but this original location mostly only during summers as we enjoy some late breakfast/lunch after visiting Hietaniemi flea market each Saturday and/or Sunday morning. Most of the times we order chiabattas (fresh high quality ingredients, olive oil is not spared) and ice frappes (with milk and sugar, usually contains a bit too much foam). The last time we also tried feta salad which was really good and fresh as well.

During last couple of years they have expanded the space in the original Kalevankatu location and also opened a new one at Galleria Esplanad (Kämp) ground floor although this new location is not as cozy. Although we liked the original smaller venue better, now there are no problems finding a free table although the shop seems to be quite busy every time we visit.

“Really nice neighbourhood cafe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2013

Really nice neighbourhood cafe in the design area of Helsinki. Run by what seems like a family of Greeks. Very good cafe type food, excellent coffee, nice atmosphere. I often stay in a nearby Hotel & always choose this cafe for breakfast/lunch rather than the Hotel restaurant.

“Good place, worth to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 June 2013

Best coffee I tried in Helsinki. For sure, It will be my "must go" place every time I visit Helsinki. I read through reviews on TripAdvisor and see that some people say "its so Italian". This is a Greek style, look closely on the photos on the wall! :)
