Cafe Carusel: "A beauty by the sea side" Café Carusel Tip by Kirmaus

Café Carusel, Helsinki: 8 reviews and 5 photos

One of the top coffeehouses in Helsinki! Modern interior (a lot of wooden surfaces), spacious, high ceeling and big windows.

Makes a great ending point for a walk through the most beautiful areas of Helsinki (Punavuori, Ullanlinna, Eira). One can enjoy a cup of tea here while watching the sea side views. Especially off-season a good place when looking for something peaceful.

The terrace is a busy meeting point in the summer, but already as early as in April it starts to get busy on sunny days. One of the warmest places in Helsinki because sheltered of the wind.

Closed around 20th of Dec and 31st of January.

Favorite Dish: Unfortunately eating is nothing special here.

Panninis, sandwiches, cakes etc. In the lunch time (~ 11.00 - 14.00) soup and two warm dishes offered. Toasts with salad about 6.50. A soup with bread and coffee/tea costs 6.50. Once odered a portion of soup - it was ok.

For vegeterians not much: cheese panninis and tuna sandwiches.
