The best little cafe on the edge of the sea, beautiful beach with a stunning view, lovely staff. Well worth a trip out of Helsinki town to visit this area. Gorgeous spot for a long walk along the coastline. Stop for a coffee, glass of bubbles, snack, lunch or as the Finnish love, an ice cream! The cherry on top... More

The idea with cafe mellsten is outdoors. So for example now in the winter, we spent an hour walking the beach and on the frozen sea. Our 6 year old had good time although it was bit windy. So then with our appetite high, it's marvelous to step in to cafe mellsten. You can sit next to the fireplace or... More

Mellsten is a good cafe for pizza (!) and snacks. It serves main dishes as well as "quickies" - sandwiches etc. Menu changes with season. Acceptable food and reasonable service. Nice ambiance.

Café style experience where you order your food and drinks at the cash register and food is delivered to your table. Pizza was great and reasonably priced for Finland. (11-12 Euro). Pizza was very tasty and we did not go home hungry. The place is great if there is sunshine and you can sit outside and enjoy the stunning sea... More

A good snack by the sea side. Splendid location and very nice view. On one side the beach, yachts on the other. Ideal in summer or in a sunny winter day. Not a great selection of food, but it seems you may always find good pizzas and the soup of the day. Reasonable prices. Good, polite and efficient service that... More

Reasonable priced, nice selection of everything. Very nice view, good terrace! Rather go there than the Haukilahden Paviljonki next door.

This is one of my favorite places in Espoo. The sea and beaches nearby are wonderful and not as crowded as you might think. Their Pizzas are also some of the best I've had in Finland. Come here and have a beer and pizza on a warm summer evening, you will not be let down. The place itself is a... More

A nice venue with a view to the ocean, reasonable prices and lots to drink and eat. Haven't tasted the pizzas yet but still on my list!

This place has been "always" on the Mellsten beach and one of those "must to go" spots at least once in every summer. Atmosphere is relaxed, no need to wear the best sailing outfit and service is good. The place is famous for their pizzas which are tasty, crispy and thin. This place might need some face lift and renovation... More
