The Nepolian is wonderful, and you need to try the Hot Chocolate. My wife and I came here for a mid day snack and it was delicious. The servers however are a different deal. We waited over 45 minutes to pay the bill. Not from the time we ordered, but from the time we finished eating. We asked the server... More

The next time you are Shopping in the design district of Helsinki why not sit down and take a moment to enjoy the delicious food, pastries and coffee at this wonderful location. It can get crowded but that is just a sign of the enormous popularity of this local icon!

One of the oldest cafes in Helsinki and still doing very well. Breakfast was wonderful and very pleasantly served. You want to have lots of time and linger over excellent coffee and a very pleasant and friendly environment.

Ekbergs was established in 1857 and some of the original detail still exists in and out of the cafe. It is a popular venue for both visitors and locals by offering delightful cakes, snacks, lunch buffet meals and pastries in the cafe and more reasonably priced items from the adjacent shop. Be assured that the service is quick and efficient... More

Based in the heart of Helsinki's design district, Ekbert is terrific for breakfast or lunch or an informal business meeting with coffee.

This venue certainly has period charm in terms of the interior - as do the cakes and pastries. (Amused to read the recent Swiss reviewer describing this place as cheap - it seemed nothing of the kind to us!) Tea and pastries perfectly acceptable without being spectacular. The service was in parts on the cool (verging on the disinterested) side.

Ekberg was busy with a cross section of locals... ladies meeting for coffee, students, tourists etc. For a reasonable EU11 you could settle in for as much as you liked from the breakfast buffet, and it looked like a few were planning on staying all day. The buffet selection was classic Scandinavian, and the coffee good and strong. Worth a... More

For what is known as the most traditional and premiere Café in Finland, this place could certainly use a visit from Gordon Ramsey... Never have I been so actively ignored by staff members in my life. And when we did get eye contact, we were told to have a seat. A good 10 minutes later, the staff is still busy... More

One of the things restaurants in Helsinki offer is a "lunch special" for 10-11 Euros. The Ekberg offers the special for 10 Euro and this includes soup, salad, main dish, desert, and coffee. My daughter and I ate at the Ekberg twice as the quality and service were very good. Would recommend to my friends.
