Good tastes with responsibility

We serve Finnish ingredients, Fair trade and organic products. We are building a better world one bite at a time.

Lookout of facts and stories

The bookstore carries a large variety of fact and science books published by Finnish publishers. Emphasis in the selection is in history, society, culture, arts, economy, well-being and natural sciences, but other types of books are also available, including readers’ favourites, surprising authors, design and books about Helsinki.

If you can’t find a Finnish language book you are looking for, we’ll order it for you!

Tastes from morning to evening

The selection of the comfy and fresh coffee house evolves during the day – you may come and enjoy your morning coffee with fresh croissants, or have salad and soup for lunch or even refresh the night with a glass of wine.

Fair Trade and organic products are favoured at the coffee shop.
