I'd say, this is probably the best place in Helsinki to have a sushi buffet. Price is 15€ and it's all up to you how well you want to be able to walk afterwords. They also have a salad buffet.

Had a late morning coffee stop here, was very surprised to find this place, the outside is quite unassuming. The coffee was good and the lunch spread look good too. Will have to stop and try that next time.

This was an exciting little find in Helsinki. Stumbled across it but really enjoyed our coffee and cake. Very interesting architecture and obviously very popular with the locals for a cheap lunch smorgasbord. Very helpful staff and great food.

Centrally located by the market place (and next to the tourist info) this stunning art deco cafe is well worth the visit. Excellent cakes and coffee and very friendly service.

This place doesn't give any clues from the outside to its fantastic interior. We only had a coffee and hot chocolate, both were very nice and the food looked good.

If you like cafeteria style restaurants with lots of sushi, this may be a good place to eat. Not knowing exactly how everything worked, I asked some of the staff and they were less than helpful. We opted for coffee and cake which was almost okay, not great and somewhat stale. Bottom line, go somewhere else!

Aschan Cafe Jugend is located near the market square, at the heart of the administrative centre of Helsinki city. Restaurant space is beautiful and suitable for families and even small kids. I ordered sushi lunch buffe (15 euros) which was tasty and fresh. I recommend!
