“Siltanen is a popular bar/club at nights with wide selection of clubs (check what's on from their site). It gets packed for weekend nights and the crowd is usually international. During the days and early nights there's a peruvian restaurant called Onda that just moved there. Hands down the best lunch and brunch in town! There's also a nice and big sun terrace during summer months. Go.”

Cafe
“I've been going to Ekberg since I moved to Helsinki over 20 years ago. Ekberg is Finland's oldest bakery, patisserie and café, located in the city centre on the atmospheric Bulevardi. In the beautiful, newly renovated café you can let time sit still and enjoy delicious delicacies as well as a leisurely ambience. The Ekberg Café is open every day, with only certain holidays as an exception. The mornings begin with an appetizing and plentiful breakfast, which is served from a buffet from Monday to Sunday. Lunch is served at 11.00 on Monday to Friday.”
