Prices are from 6,60€ if you don't study in Finland. The food is healthy, you can choose from range of salads, vegetarian food and there is also coffee included. I think it's good place to fill your stomach without going bankrupt while you're visiting Helsinki...More

Great place IF u are a student. Food is not that extra delicious but I always eat it, since it costs only 2.60e. Enough Food And covers the main supper offset your daily nutrition. Staff is nice btw

A very good location just in the city center. The food is just so so but with student discount, it is a good place to fill up stomach. Open till quite late in weekdays, which is also very convenient.

Been here many times. Love the place so much. The food is basic but covers all the needs. The restaurant is self-service, functions like a school cafeteria, budgeted, full of student in town during lunch time. The location is great, close to the central station.

Only been here once, but it is intensely popular. I found the food a little gouty, and there is that bustling refectory feel, but I guess that is the idea. Cheap cheap food!

The Unicafe cafeteria chain is run by the Finnish university system, but it's open to the public. (The clientele appeared to be 99% students during my visit, though.) For Finnish students, lunch costs I believe 2.60 euro; for others, it costs 7 euro (more if...More
