What a lovely cafe in the old town of Porvoo! Large and absolutely delicious cakes and good selection of teas and coffees. Enjoyed the sunny day on they idyllic backyard. Highly recommend.

If you are one of those who wish to visit joints "where locals go", please be advised that I never pick this place. I have nothing evil to say about it, and their bakery standards are probably as decent as they should be. But the place is over the top touristic and playing on some Russian-antique-19th century kitch charm. But check it out, though if you are a tourist. :-) A much more Finnish-style local coffee-and-bun-shop is Fanny a few more hundred meters further down the street.

I heard that Cafe Helmi was a sophisticated, upper class private home during the 1800s. Love the historical interior design and ambience. The outdoor courtyard is the gem.

The tea selection is very unique. We chose Japanese mint tea at €3@, lemon cake and strawberry cake at €6.5@. The cakes were tasty and the tea was our favourite. It is a cozy place to have a relaxing break after a tour in Porvoo Old Town.

Cafe with historical ambience, decorated with hundreds of antique pieces: furniture, portraits, dolls and toys.
Very good coffee and delicious home-made cakes.
