Well located cafe in walking area of Yliopistonkatu near Hansa shopping quarter. Good selection of tasty bakings, average coffee drinks and salad bar to choose and customize a fresh salad.

The size of the buns and cookies are enormous. You can easily slice the bun on muffin with your friend and still have enough to eat with coffee. Muffins with white chocolate and berries is highly recommended.

The dessert are really big... and very sugary. It is quite pricy, but you can easily share a muffin with someone else, as it is big, and as I already said, very sweet.
