Eating in Helsinki

Eating in Helsinki

I was only in Helsinki for about a day. Luckily, I found some great spots to eat at--special thanks to my airbnb host for his great tips!

cafe bar no. 9 eating in Helsinki

The salmon soup at Cafe Bar 9 was amazing. I had it with one of the local beers and some bread. This cafe/bar was full, but not crowded. You have to order at the bar, so don't sit at the table reading for twenty minutes wondering where you waiter is like I did.

Kaffa Roastery eating in Helsinki

I stopped at Moko Market because I heard there was coffee inside. And there was! Kaffa Roastery is in the back. Their coffee is amazing and definitely worth a visit. Plus, you can order pastries at the Moko Market side and take it over. Moko Market itself is really cool--like a Scandinavian Anthropology. I loved the artwork on the walls and the variety of home wares.

street food eating in Helsinki

I grabbed a toast burger at this street food truck on my way to the ferry station. I thought I took a photo of it but I can't find it -- so here's the truck! I also have no idea what the truck is called, but if you are taking the ferry over to Tallinn, it's the truck right across the street from that station. Nothing like non-American fast food!
