Favorite Coffee Spots in Helsinki
Last month, I travelled to Finland. It was my birthday and I've wanted to go to Helsinki since I was 5 years old. So I took a plane and spent 3 days is amazing Helsinki... I visited 3 great restaurants and found 3 great coffee shops. Surprisingly enough, Finland has great coffee spots and roasteries. I visited them all and were very impressed with all of them.
Johan & Nyström
I have visited before Johan & Nyström and it is one of my favorites in Stockholm, but as well in Helsinki! The coffee shop is at Hamringevägen next to the waterline in a beautiful brick building. The red bricks and interior design on this place makes you feel like you teleported yourself to Brooklyn. They have the biggest glutenfree selection I have ever seen in a coffee place in Europe, and that includes things that aren't sweet.
Good Life Coffee
Good Life Coffee has been popping up on my instagram feed for a while. I was very attracted to the amazing design on their coffee boxes. "Avoid Bad Life" is their motto, and they sure know how to make this work. They not only roast their own coffee, produce amazing merchandise and brew delicious coffee, but they make the best scrambled eggs in THE WORLD! They don't have a kitchen or a stove, but they make this heavenly airy and delicate eggs using their milk steamer. What??? a steamer? Yes! the regular milk steamer. This was by far my favorite place... And one of their roasters, actually hooked me up with some cascara, Bonus Points!
I don't quite remember how I landed here. I think the guys from Good Life Coffee sent me in this direction. But I ended up at Kahvila Sävy. They had a gluten free selection and a big of pastry selection. I tried some Kenyan brewed on V60 and it was great.

Thank you, this list was well-needed!!! I'm moving back to Finland next week, and really keen to start discovering the coffee scene in my native land after years of coffee drinking abroad. I also visited Johan & Nyström last autumn and it was so cool, such good coffee and cosy but urban atmosphere, really loved it!

I hope u got to discover them all and have some more tips for me on my next trip ;))))
As a Helsinki-lover I'm glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! You really succeeded to choose one of this city's best cafés :--) Next time you gotta try Galleria Keidas (boho chic, great breakfast), Café Kokko (amaxing raw cakes and coffee) and Brooklyn Café (best NY-style bagels in town)! ♡

Men hur kan man glömma Café Ekberg på Bulevarden just där spärvagnen stannar?

Eftersom den här artikeln rekommenderar kaféer med kvalitékaffe, inte kaféer.allmänt.

Just wanted to correct that Johan & Nyström cafe in Helsinki is at Kanalkajen 7, not Hamringevägen... It is in Skatudden, near Uspenski Cathedral (the big orthodox church) !
