Big queue but worth the wait for coffee and delicious hot chocolate and special pastries. Next time I'll go for a sausage to cook on the firepit!

Quite literally the best café i've visited in Helsinki, it was totally worth the 30 minute walk from our hotel. It's located on the edge of the sea which was all frozen over so we walked on it and there is a man made ice ride next to the café which was fun to try!

The café inside is small but very quirky, there is all kinds of books and memorabilia on the walls and even the ceiling. The standard filter coffee is ok, you get 5cents back every time you top up which is a great idea but we didn't do it because we thought it tasted a little bitter for us. The cinnamon bun was AMAZING and served warm, perfect for such a cold morning.

We sat by the fire outside for hours admiring the frozen sea, spoke to a local gentlemen who was out walking his dog and got a hot juice for 2 euros. There is music playing and blankets to keep warm, it was just perfect way to spend couple of hours with my other half. I can't wait to visit again.

Lovely authentic and unique little Cafe in a fantastic location on the lake/sea shore. Lots of seating outside with a great view and a fire to gather round. The hot chocolates and the cinnamon buns are delicious!

In winter it is a great experience to walk across the bay on the frozen ice to the cafe and sit in the little rowing boat that is frozen in place in the ice!

Unique place that should definitely be visited. The coffee was great, the broccoli pie as well and the cinnamon buns were as delicious as everyone says.
