At the Qulma lunch buffet you'll stuff your belly with oven roasted potatoes (with side), salad, homemade bread and one of the three soups served. The food is tasty and fresh. They've stuck to their concept that works. The value for money is great!

One of my favorite brunches in Helsinki. Nice selection of food. More like lunch than breakfast, and I like it! Especially their fish dishes are great. I've been missing their great mint pesto - hope it'll be on the menu soon again.

We went there for brunch on a Saturday and were really really disappointed. There was not a single breakfast item like eggs, rolls, cheese, jam or anything else. Unfortunately we had to pay before entering the buffet, otherwise we would have just left right away....More
