Beautiful summer Sunday, strolled over and grabbed a table outdoors. Great people watching! I had a very sweet and friendly waitress. She told me a bit about the history of this Helsinki institution. I had a delicious open faced shrimp sandwich with fresh dill and...More

Advertised as their speciality, the Napoleon cake is definitely freshly made, but I missed the WOW effect a truly masterfully prepared combination of sugar, butter and flour should induce to justify its calorie count. We discovered Ekberg while walking around the Design District, and were...More

We took a coffee and cake and then bought bread next door (separate shop). A cake called "Budapest" was quit good and a filtered coffee was so and so. The shop was a quiet and little sophisticated place

Lovely place to stop by for a coffee/tea with a pastry break. And if you are staying at the Hotel Indigo about a block away, I would come here for breakfast since it is a lot cheaper than the hotel.

The wife and I dropped in for cake and coffee for afternoon tea after reading about it on Trip. The coffee was as good as most I had tried in Helsinki....but the cakes are really tasty. Ekbergs uses recipes from the 1800s when the Tsars...More

Nice place for a cake and some hot chocolate. I got my favourite pie (lemon meringue) and it was delicious. The place is a little posh and expensive but nice overall. Free WiFi and clean bathrooms. The adjunct bakery with the same name is not...More
