This is a casual yet cosy place for lunch and dinner. The risottos are usually pretty good. That said, if you are really hungry their portions are not the best but I personally appreciate their lunch menu as I do not stuff myself

The breakfast menu is the reason I come here. The place is in the center of the city, the breakfast prices are reasonable and it's pretty calm in the 2nd floor even though there's a busy street outside. My omelette was nice and good size...More

Finally tasty coffee. The sweet stuff was not convincing but the coffee was. A good hiding place from the usual rain...

The coffee is not really up with the best speciality coffee shops in Helsinki, or indeed other capitals. It is, however, of very good quality. What is nice, however, is that its location means that it is enough off the beaten track to mean that...More

Went for late lunch, @15:00, and had lovely ciabatta. The salmon filling was superbly complemented with fennel, a great combination. Flat white coffee just as you'd expect. I go here quite regularly since the coffee is better and cheaper than Starbucks...

Espresso is here always perfectly prepared by professional baristas. Freshly roasted coffee. Also tasty lunch. Little bit slow service and the place is so popular that it is usually hard to find table. Nice street views from the second floor.

La Torrefazione is a third wave coffee shop; by knowing our supply chain we can guarantee the quality and taste of our coffees. All of our baristas have taken a barista exam, they both know how to make coffee but also the story behind each of our coffees. To us, a great cup of coffee is a piece of art and all the steps on the beans way to the cup are important. We serve breakfast, lunch, salads and sandwiches. Our popular brunch is served during the weekend.
