Espresso is here always perfectly prepared by professional baristas. Freshly roasted coffee. Also tasty lunch. Little bit slow service and the place is so popular that it is usually hard to find table. Nice street views from the second floor.

Centrally located (but can be hard to spot...) Might be best coffee in Helsinki and always some nice lunch dishes. It is popular, so can be crowded, but service is always friendly. Easy to recommend!

La Torrefazione is a third wave coffee shop; by knowing our supply chain we can guarantee the quality and taste of our coffees. All of our baristas have taken a barista exam, they both know how to make coffee but also the story behind each of our coffees. To us, a great cup of coffee is a piece of art and all the steps on the beans way to the cup are important. We serve breakfast, lunch, salads and sandwiches. Our popular brunch is served during the weekend.
