An Ultimate Guide to the Best Helsinki Café

Finnish people consume more coffee per person than does any other nation in the world. Coffee culture in Finland is a very important part of the daily life and in Helsinki, for example, it is practically impossible to turn a corner without passing by a café or three. Here is a guide to the best Helsinki café, where you can experience the true Finnish culture and enjoy a cup of delicious coffee.

Good Life Coffee

Kolmas Linja 17, 00530 Helsinki

www.goodlifecoffee.fi

Their slogan is ‘avoid bad life’ and fittingly, as this cozy coffee bar is dedicated to make every cup great along with pastries from some of the best local bakeries. Try their special “Päivän suodatenkahvi” (filter coffee of the day), as displayed on the clipboard next to the record player. As the barista said, “filter coffee is kind of our thing.”

Kaffa Roastery

In the heart of the Helsinki Design District you’ll find the Kaffa Roastery. Kaffa doesn’t have tables, just bars, and it is located in the back corner of a larger building that sells vintage and designer housewares. Great variety of coffee, good design and hospitality – Kaffa has everything a perfect coffee place needs to.

Kahvila Sävy

This cute little café with a friendly and inviting atmosphere is a true gem. A family-run business, this café is only open in the daytime, and yet still has managed to be a popular place among the city’s coffee connoisseurs, who savour the excellent brews.

Hunaja Café

Siltavuorenranta 16, 00170 Helsinki

Hunaja Café is a great place in Helsinki, selling vegetarian and vegan food, organically grown coffee, and fresh smoothies. The café also has an incredibly relaxed, homey feel, requiring visitors to leave their shoes at the entryway, and with the interior more closely resembling a living room.

Johan & Nyström Concept

Kanavaranta 7C, 00160 Helsinki

This big Swedish specialty coffee roaster Johan & Nyström has opened its first shop in Finland and is located right on the water next to the Uspenski cathedral, near the presidential palace, and other tourist attractions like the Kauppatori market square and Helsinki cathedral. Outside, views of Kruununhaka, with many sailing ships and modern yachts and power-boats sharing harbour space. Not only the spectacular views, but also they offer a range of coffees and treats in a cozy, warm atmosphere with friendly staff.
