At the lunchtime buffet type table! Coffee/tea/drinks and bakery products also available. Beutiful place to visit eventhough you wouldn't go to see art collections. The best entrance from Ateneuminkuja.

Dirty disheson the tables, difficult to find a spot to sit on. Too little staff. Quite expensive, but quality ok.

A spot of tea and a piece of cake, with the gift shop temptations nearby ... the little bistro was busy but not crowded and there was an art installation overhead to enjoy as well.

The chevre salad seemed a bit expensive in comparison to the other products on the list, but was worth it. Also the moussaka on the lunch menu was very good.
