    If you ignore the Starbucks at the entrance and go up the stairs, besides books, you'll find nice breakfasts for less than 10€ even on weekends + very nice and friendly service 👌

    Cozy place and friendly service but the prices are crazy. Very expensive compared to some other places in the neighborhood.

    The cafe locates inside & on the second floor of the book store - right next to Starbuck. You can have a pot of tea & a pot of coffee for 8E - such a steal :)

    When in need of caffeine order coffee portion (kahviannos) 3,9 €. The waitress will bring you sugar, milk and a coffee pot that holds 2 cups of coffee. It's the rare moderately priced item on the menu

    Cafe design by Alvar Aalto in second floor at "Akademiska Bokhandeln". One few café in Helsinki as still having table service. Food match the design.

    Staff is polite. The bookstore is awesome setting. Not the best place to do work though. Not very quiet, wooden chairs can become uncomfortable after half an hour of sitting

    Table service is such a rare commodity in Helsinki that this is a trusted friend. A peaceful place surrounded by books where you can drink a pot of decent tea and maybe eat a piece if cake.

    The ice cream portions and the breakfast trays are the best this place has to offer. In addition to the ambience and free wifi.
