REGATTA my favorite Cafe in Helsinki  |  Helsinki, Finland |  Such a lovely small local cafe overlooking the waters of the city of Helsinki. Unique, relaxed, cozy and very very local. I think I only counted five tables inside the cafe. A great selection of local Finnish delights ranging from the classic Cinnamon Buns to my own choice the Karelian pasties. During summer time they also have a whole outdoors area. Open daily from 10AM till 11PM.
A must try are the traditional Karelian pasties with eggbutter “karjalanpiirakat”. Nowadays in the most familiar and common recipe the pasties are made from a thin rye crust with a filling of rice. Butter, often mixed with boiled egg, is spread over the hot pasties before eating.
Something very characteristic of this cafe is that they do not charge your for the second cup of coffee, instead they pay you if you have it, quite unusual right. Located at Merikannontie 10, Helsinki, very close to Sibelius Monument. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
