    French style small bistro, almost makes you feel like you're in Paris.

    A lovely laid-back cafe & lunch restaurant almost hidden in the courtyard. Fresh pastas, salads and must-try desserts.

    Food is exceptionally good. Also have an espresso, it's probably one of the best coffees I have ever had! I heard the chef spent a whole week just to get the right kind of grind on the coffee beans.

    Perhaps the best service in Helsinki! And food prepared with care and passion.

    Friendly? Not my experience. Warning: do not move the outside chairs. The owner will shout profanities, while not coming to explain, then leave so no order can be made, TO SMOKE A CIGARET! We left.

    Whatever you go for it's going to be a win. Salads and sandwiches are great! Ask for the wines, too.

    Most handsome patron around. Also recommend the saksanpahkinatorttu with Arbois.

    Cozy old-school parisian-style cafe with a lot of heart. Home-made, organic, yummy, good-looking dishes. Just what's been missing in Helsinki.

    Hyviä leipiä sekä salaatteja ja halpaa kahvia. Alkoholikaan ei ole liian kallista! Suosittelen lämpimästi.
