After visiting the Gallery we thought about having a lunch break and went to the Ateneum Bistro. The Mango Cheesecake I ordered was very delicious. They also had a lot of glutenfree and lactosefree options which were also good labeled.

This the perfect lunch spot in the center of Helsinki. Even if you don't visit the museum. € 10,50 for a complete buffet lunch, coffee included.

After pounding the galleries for more than two hours our feet needed a rest and we needed a "tea and a bun". This Bistro is really nice, excellent cake, friendly service PLUS bottomless ups of coffee and free iced water.

At the lunchtime buffet type table! Coffee/tea/drinks and bakery products also available. Beutiful place to visit eventhough you wouldn't go to see art collections. The best entrance from Ateneuminkuja.

Dirty disheson the tables, difficult to find a spot to sit on. Too little staff. Quite expensive, but quality ok.

A spot of tea and a piece of cake, with the gift shop temptations nearby ... the little bistro was busy but not crowded and there was an art installation overhead to enjoy as well.
