Kappeli: "For romantic winter evenings" Ravintola Kappeli Tip by Kirmaus

Ravintola Kappeli, Helsinki: 12 reviews and 17 photos

Kappeli is divided in two sections: a coffeehouse and a restaurant.

This coffeehouse is full of feeling! If you appreciate classical beauty, romantic atmosphere and big windows this is the place. The building itself is probably the most romantic in Helsinki: there's a taste of the classy Paris.

Though many people prefer the terrace in the summer, I love Kappeli most in the winter evenings. It's cold and dark outside but inside it's cosy: soft lightning, candles...

The clientele is a little older than in other cafes. Especially in the evenings you will find groups of middle aged people spending an evening here.

Favorite Dish: In the coffeehouse the normal stuff: sandwiches and cakes. Small portions. I have sometimes tried their cakes: ok, but nothing to die for. Their sandwiches have never appealed to me . The best choice is aubergine pie that is very filling and good.

In the lunch time (till 15.00) offered soup for 7.00 euros ( I consider it a bit expensive)
