How To Get To Cafe Regatta

Cafe Regatta Helsinki is located just beside Sibelius Park, in the Töölö suburb of the capital.

It is around a 30 minute walk from Helsinki Central Railway Station.

If you don’t fancy walking, the closest tram stop is Töölön halli. Although it’s still a 800m walk to the entrance of the red cottage doors. Totally worth it though!

What To Expect At Cafe Regatta Helsinki

The title of this blog kind of explains it, but Cafe Regatta Helsinki is one of our fondest memories of our trip to Finland.

Located by the sea, the traditional red cottage cafe has brought a part of the Finnish countryside to the middle of Helsinki.

The cottage building was originally owned by the famous coffee family, Paulig. It was built in 1887 as a shed for their fishnets to be stored, next to the family’s villa.

You can even buy sausages and cook them out on the firepit

From 1952 – 2002 there had been various summer cafes running in the building. That was until Cafe Regatta came along.

The cosy cafe is now famous for its fresh cinnamon buns, blueberry pie and other delicacies. Served in a charismatic and relaxed atmosphere, you will never experience anything like it.

We sat down amongst the locals one afternoon to enjoy a hot chocolate and escape the cold for half an hour and it was so refreshing. The quirky old decorations and rustic vibe really gave us a feel of traditional Finland.
