I happened to be walking by Kaffecentralen and decided to drop in for coffee. What a great find! The coffee was one of the best I've had in Helsinki so I'll definitely go back again.

So far the best coffee I've had in Helsinki. Great taste, friendly staff and varied coffee making equipment. Also a cosy little park close by where you can enjoy your latte to go.

Stopped in to the location next to the Design Museum. The espresso and cappucino were average. The swan made in the foam was terrific.

The tiny boutique coffee shop and cafe is a popular stop for really good espresso and cappuccino. In season, even two open-air tables on the sidewalk.

Friendly staff, good coffee. Maybe ask for a double shot if you like it strong. Not many food options available apart from a few pastries.

At one of the three Kaffecentralen cafés you'll get the best coffee in town. They really know how to make coffee 😃 my favourite this summer- iced latte!

I went to Kaffecentralen on my last visit to Helsinki with an overseas Finnish friend. Since neither of us has lived in Finland for several years we decided to rely on tripadvisor on our choice of coffee shop. We were definitely not disappointed!

The coffee is delicious and staff is friendly. Although the place is more a shop than a cafe and mostly people buy to go. But we could still enjoy our lovely cups of coffee (cappuccino and latte) there. I definitely recommend the place!
