Cosy atmosphere and the recent shop extension gives more people to sample the fantastic bagels and sumptuous cupcakes. Also the owners and staff are very nice people. Been in Helsinki almost 3 years now and by far my favourite cafe.

They have a nice selection of pastries and salty food with very good prices. Especially the bagels. The place is small and when it was full it was very noisy, but the atmosphere in the cafe is really nice. It is very popular so be prepared not to get a table.

This place is an amazing little spot of sunshine nestled in the design district of Helsinki. They have a great selection of fresh bagels with plenty of choice on filling and very nice coffee. It's a tiny little place with around 15 seats but I always find a seat with my longest wait only being 5 minutes and theres great... More

A perfect little american style Café with delicious cupcakes, great coffee and good bagels. One of the only cafés in Helsinki that delivers a latte to your doorstep.

I love love love the Brooklyn Cafe! The bagels, cupcakes, cookies and brownies are just fantastic. I don't really care for the coffees here (I've had better), but the baked goods are just phenomenal. I always get my cheat day treats from here and I definitely recommend to try both the sweet and salty options available.

I tried their muffins first time at the Flow festival and fell in love with them. This cafe is a cute small cafe with good service. The coffee is also delicious.

Stumbled across this after leaving a park with my kids. Saw the cupcakes in the window and decided to stop. The cupcakes were amazing and the iced Toffee macchiato was just as great. The employee was extremely friendly (forgot to get her name). Would definitely visit again if I had found it sooner!

This place has the best coffee in Southern Helsinki and it doesn't even cost an arm and a leg. The bagels are also decent. Only negative is that the place can be described as "cozy", so during peak hours it's rather tight. But the staff is really friendly and it's also perfect for takeaway and to walk to the seaside.

Hard to locate, friendly staff but such a tiny room it was actually hard to hear what he was telling me... We had looked for this place to sample some cupcakes ideally to order some for our wedding. They only had two on offer on a busy Saturday lunch time so that's quite a fail for me. They advertise gluten... More

Hi! So sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. The cafe is small indeed, therefore it can be very hard to hear when it is crowded. I assure you, if you had simply asked, our employee would've been happy to speak up :-) To clarify for others who will be returning/plan to return to our cafe, we do... More
