“Cafe Salutorget”
Reviewed 31 December 2011

The Restaurant Salutorget has a small cafe next to it, just a half a dozen small tables. I like to go there in the mornings because it is such a quiet little place, if you go there before 10.30 you propably will be the only customer there. They have table service and they offer quite a long list of excellent teas, I usually have a Darjeeling. Apparently the tea is unlimitless as usually when I've nearly finished my first, second, even third cup, one of the staff
comes round and offers me a fresh cup. One of the nicer things is that they bring you honey free of charge, in most places the tiny pot of honey costs 50c.

Why I rated Salutorget Cafe only 4* is because sometimes it is a bit difficult to attract the staff's attention even though I might be the only customer there. But then again, they are young, enthusiastic, courteous and multi-lingual, so a perfect place to stop by if you only have a couple of hours to spend before you have to catch your cruise ship.

“Stylish restaurant with delicious food, excellent service and fair prices”
Reviewed 25 December 2011

The perfect place for a great meal in Helsinki - unique and scrumptous dishes from local delicacies, outstanding service by friendly but discreet staff, reasonable prices and a festive but relaxed atmosphere. Add the fabulous location in a gorgeously renovated bank building just across from Helsinki's main market square and the shores of the Baltic Sea, and you have everything you need for a fabulous dining experience! Even the bathrooms are something to see (as they're located in the old bank vault)!

“Glamorous, good food and polite service”
Reviewed 8 December 2011

We had fabulous Christmas lunch there. The best part was, that the food wasn't typical Finnish Christmas food, but classy and tasty scandinavian style dishes. There was three options to choose from starters, main course and dessert. The food was really good. Staff was very polite and nice. We didn't have to wait our food at all.

The decoration of the restaurant was glamorous. It isn't cheap chain restaurant and you can see it immediately when you enter the restaurant.

“hearty breakfast at salutorget cafe”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

It's hard to find a cafe in Helsinki that serves late breakfasts, so we were happily surprised on a late Sunday afternoon to find Salutorget Cafe still serving breakfast. They had three options, Continental, Scandinavian and Salutorgets Warm Breakfast.

We opted for Salutorgets Warm Breakfast of sausage, bacon & scrambled eggs (a rarity on breakfast menus, the other two options were way too healthy). It was a wonderful hearty breakfast, including croissants, marmalade, butter, toast, coffee and fresh juice. For approx 15e it's a bargain.

The service was very friendly and polite, and they kept our coffee cups filled. The cafe itself is a lovely 'enjoy coffee and read the paper as long as you like' kind of place, with huge windows and comfortable seats. It's also quite small, but an ideal place if you want to enjoy coffee & cake or a glass of wine with a friend.

The restaurant part of Salutorget is large and caters to larger groups, it also serves brunch (haven't tried it).

Salutoeget is just opposite the main market place in the center of Helsinki, so it's only a hop, skip and jump away from the main attractions.
