COFFEE BEANS & BEINGS / POPULAR FINNISH BLOGGER WALKS YOU THROUGH 15 ICONIC HELSINKI NEIGHBORHOODS IN SEARCH OF COOL CAFE
Varpu is a Finn, who about a year ago founded a blog called Her Finland, which now boasts 800k viewers. Her Finland exists to assist in experiencing Finland and Finish culture. View Her Finland by clicking here.
Of course, PillartoPost.org is interested in world culture, but first things first. We wandered through Her Finland blog to determine, which coffee house in Finland is Varpu’s favorite.
Here’s what Mrs. Varpu wrote (sorry, guys she’s married):
“...The Helsinki Cafe Worth the Walk! A bridge away from Ruoholahti, there’s an island called Lauttasaari. And on that island, is my favorite coffee spot in Helsinki: Mutterikahvila or Café Mutteri. The address is Lauttasaarentie 2. See image, above.
“...It’s certainly a long walk away from the city center but so worth it. Everything I have ever tasted here is divine. They have the freshest rolls and the most mouthwatering sweet treats. The coffee is brewed perfectly. This tiny, wooden, old ferry-ticket-house-turned-cafe full of local life is the Helsinki cafe experience you need to have!”

Another voice: Because pillartopost.org blog (the one you are reading at the moment) is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, we find Helsinki to be Vancouver’s twin city when it comes to geography akin to island cities like Stockholm and Venice. We love older neighborhoods, tree-lined and comfortable. That’s why we preferred Ekberg, Bulevardi 9, Helsinki, one of the oldest café’s in Finland (1852), as our favorite Helsinki neighborhood coffee house. But, we’re only tourists—what do we know?
