There are a lot of different ingredients from which you can build your own salad. The portions are large and it's reasonable priced. Location is great. Lots of vegan options too! Coffee, tea, cakes and sandwiches too.

This cafe is easily accessible and quite busy. I had a latte and a sandwich, both were OK but nothing extraordinary. They also managed to mess up my coffee order since they basically just put coffees on the counter in unknown order and whoever is waiting just grab them. The salads looked really fresh, but I was not impressed by... More

This is a very popular cafe, especially amongst young people. They have cheap and generous salads. You can choose what you want. The place is quite crowded at the lunch time although it is not so comfortable.

My friends were raving about the delicious salads in Johto Cafe, so I decided to give them ago and what can I say.. First of all the service was awful, the worker seemed very bored, and gave me dirty looks, lovely eh? And then the salad. The lettuce was already turning yellow, and they had actually used the bitter white... More

You can make your own salad with 3 or 4 options from 20 different (different chickens, watermelons, tzatziki, strawberry, feta, mushrooms etc). They are HUGE.

It’s very popular among young people in Helsinki. Their salad dishes are enormous and you can mix and match your salad with 2, 3 or 4 ingredients. Tasty and fresh food with very reasonable price. Sometimes the queues can be very long, so they should have more staff for peak times.

It's a good cafe and a very good choice for a light lunch. The prices are ok and the atmosphere is open and nice. I love their chai latte.

This is my favourite lunch cafeteria if I need to find a quick place near everything. The menu got salads and pastas. There's quite many options in the salad bar and the ingredients are mostly fresh. The queue might be frustratingly long but you don't need to wait salads in the table. There's lots of space, nice view to the... More

Prices are ok, but queuing the coffee for ages and the not so fresh donuts will not attract me to come again.

I had quick lunch here while shopping, a two-topping salad from the salad bar. It was actually quite good, but a bit expensive considering that most of the plate was just basic green salad. But for taste I cannot complain. Location of the cafe is very central, which is always a plus, but at the same time atmosphere is a... More
