The hot chocolate was nothing special, and the pastry was the same. Go to a real cafe instead. And the bathrooms in the Kiasma museum are disgusting!

Compared to size the capuccino is probably the most expensive in Finland. Croissan was a bit dry by 1pm that we visited. No thumbs up except for the location.

A very nice place with modern clean design. 2 single beds will be standard in the room. Short menu but very tasty and best produce used. 2 steps away from the amazing architecture of the inside of the museum ...

It was November Friday, evening I visited. It was so dark in the restaurant, that it was impossible to read anything. Cafe was good and the pie was ok. I have to say that I'm not so keen on the sandwiches that has been packed to plastic.

The café offers a good place to relax. However, while the coffee here was good, the food was not that great. I would pass on eating here again.

For being at such a central and highly frequented place a surprisingly calm place, which was ok with us bringing in our cat (after we heard many no during the day) The food (we had a bit too watery mushroom soup) was reasonable priced

...but this was just a refreshing, satisfying lunch in front of the lovely infinity pool. You will love this easily accessible spot.

We ordered the soup of the day with mushrooms and white riesling wine. The soup was creamy but not too fat and had mushroom pieces in it. I enjoyed it very much! The portion was neither too small nor too big. The staff was friendly and smiling. The wine smelled of flowers and was really pleasant.

My husband and I had Sunday lunch here and really enjoyed the food. I had a veggie dish and the flavours were amazing. The staff are friendly and we love the space of the cafe and the museum.
