Delivo sends the welcoming aroma of fresh cinnamon buns wafting over the Helsinki neighbourhood of Munkkiniemi. For more capital café tips, see below.

While the famous Café Engel was out of commission, its home on Helsinki’s Senate Square under renovation for more than a year, we compiled our purely subjective list of other capital cafés to visit.

Our selection features cafés all over Helsinki and offers something for everyone.

Do you want a café experience that can include having a sauna or doing your laundry? Go for Tin Tin Tango in Töölö, just north of downtown.

Visiting Alvar Aalto's house in Munkkiniemi? Delivo's friendly atmosphere forms the perfect place to refuel in this tree-lined neighbourhood. 

Here's our list (photos and descriptions in the slideshow below; for directions see our map): Bulevardin Kahvisalonki (Boulevard Coffee Salon), Carusel, Delivo, Gran Delicato, Regatta, Succès, Tin Tin Tango and Villipuutarha (Wild Garden).
