Easy-going, simple, tasty, fast.. those words describe lunch @ Soppakeittiö Hietalahti very well. They serve three kinds of soup every day and bouillabaisse is always one of them. Open your mind and try something new (e.g. black salsify) and you won't be disappointed!

Recommended by a friend as an iconic Helsinki institution for its "fish soup" in a small shop opposite the butcher that sells reindeer. Didn't disappoint. Can get your fill also of the limitless bread supply.

I'm not a big fan of soup. But I loved this place. Good prices, high quality. Only soup and great bread. The family had fish soup, I had chicken and sesame soup. We all tastes each other's. The verdict was unanimous. Great place for a quick inexpensive (by Finnish standards) meal.

The place serves 3 different types of soups daily, that's it. The soup menu changes a little from day to day. Now, the important thing to note is that you have to be at the stall before 2pm to be sure that you get your selection or any soup :). We went on the first day slightly after 3pm and... More

Wife had pea soup, I had the seafood soup: we both are still raving about the soup. Huge hot servings quickly brought to your table. Eat your lunch and watch the market patrons go about their lives. Worth a return visit, which we did and that says it all. A must lunch spot when in Helsinki!!

Fantastic large bowls of hearty soup plus unlimited fresh bread with dipping oil for 9-10 euros. Can't do better than this for a lunch on the go.

We had the fish soup for the first time in 2011. Tried it again in 2015, and it is still the same good quality and value for money. The bread is lovely. Liked their olive oil and basil for dipping the bread. Great place for a quick lunch, not for hanging around for ages. We'll come again, perhaps sooner than... More
