Friendly raw & vegan food in central shopping cent

4
Posted on 04 / 20 / 2016

Positives: Fresh food with nearly all vegan & raw options. The style is sandwiches and fruit (smoothies, frozen vegan yoghurt etc.) & it's at the top of one of the 2 largest, central shopping centres in the heart of Helsinki. Take away or sitting down is possible. The staff are super friendly & the pricing is average for the area. It's very clean & seems hygenic too.

Negatives: Considering it's location & menu, this should be speedy like a fast food restaurant but many times can be a bit slow. The sandwiches, whilst nice, have tons of fillings between 2 healthy but seperate pieces of bread - they're always awkward to eat without the filling spilling everywhere.

Pros: Friendliness, Menu range & vegan options, Fresh & tasty
Cons: Can be slow, Tricky to eat breads

Very Tasty

Posted on 01 / 15 / 2016

At freezing temperatures of -9 , I was so happy to find this very bright and fresh looking Restaurant in one of the Shopping Malls in Helsinki. I had a Johnny Cashew Sandwich made with delicious Scandinavian bread. It was filled with avocado, peppers and cashew cheese for €7,80. The friendly staff apologized that they didn't have any more coffee to serve and offered to make me my Smoothie without crushed ice. I had 1/2 a Greenthumb Smoothie for €4,80. At first I found that quite expensive but considering the ingredients and time of year and my location it was quite fair and I must say it was very filling too. The sandwich was definitely my food highlight of the day.

Vegan froyo!

Posted on 01 / 15 / 2016

I've only had frozen yoghurt here, since it used to be the only thing they served (initially not even vegan). I don't know any other place you could get vegan frozen yoghurt and it's really good with all the toppings!

Pros: froyo!
Cons: pricey, in the shopping mall

great food and great location

The food was not marked vegan but the ingredients were listed. Serves cashew cheese that tasted great as a filling for the sandwiches. It is located in the 'forum' shopping center, easy to recognise. The sandwiches were small but filling. A downside is that a sandwich costs over 7€.

Pros: great location, filling food, fake cheese
Cons: Expensive, food not listed as vegan

I took sir pesto sandwich with cashew cheese. It was really good, but a bit too oily for my liking. I really wanted to try the vegan frozen yoghurt, but the machine was broken so I couldn't. That being said, I will come here again.

Pros: Non-vegan items were clearly marked on menu, Amazing location
Cons: Eating the sandwiches could get messy

Delicious but expensive

Delicious coffee and sandwiches, kinda expensive though. Not that much places to sit. Also the location gives no privacy, its located in the middle of everything.

Good food, lots of vegan options, quite slow though. It is *inside* the shopping centre.

Nice little takeaway with a few seats located just inside the shopping centre near the street address given on HappyCow. Just near the street address there is a ground-level tunnel through the street shops to the glass doors of the shopping centre. It's just in the left as you go inside.

All the sandwiches can be vegan by selecting tofu rather than mozzarella. also nice smoothies and frozen vegan yoghurt ice cream.

The combo I had included a vegan sandwich, large smoothie and small ice cream and was about 16 EUR.

Pros: Vegan yoghurt ice cream (vanilla), Tasty sandwich
Cons: A bit messy to eat, Initially tricky to find from happy cow street add, Slow service

Vegan Frozen Yoghurt

4
Posted on 05 / 11 / 2015

They offer two choices of frozen yoghurt: natural organic frozen yoghurt and vegan soy vanilla yoghurt.
You can choose between three different cup sizes. The small one is 3,70 Euro.
Probably just the fruit toppings are vegan.

By the way, the shop is on the 3rd floor of the Forum shopping mall.

Inside Forum Shopping Centre

5
Posted on 08 / 10 / 2014

I am confused by the address listed above and by the exterior photo. It is now (June 2014) located on the 3rd floor of Forum shopping centre, not at 29 George Street Yrg. The description says dairy, but they have soy yogurt too.
I had a small (€3,70) frozen soy yogurt with blueberries and chopped kiwi toppings (several toppings to choose from) and a warm panini sandwich with pesto, avocado, tomato, arugula and crumbled tofu, total €10,50. Filling and good. Also available are coffee and tea, juices, smoothies and three other sandwiches, with soymilk and tofu options. Pleasant staff spoke English.

Pros: soy yogurt, pleasant staff

soy froyo!

Posted on 06 / 20 / 2014

this is the only place to get vegan froyo in helsinki: rich flavour of vanilla, balanced sweetness (if you want more you can choose sweeter toppings) and a good creamy texture :)

Totally recommendable!

Posted on 05 / 20 / 2014

It's a cafe on the top floor (Kukontori) at Forum shopping center, just next to Picnic cafe. They offer delicious sandwiches, juices and smoothies, coffee (ie.latte,ice latte, ice blended which has frozen yoghurt in it) and more.

All sandwiches can be made vegan (probably they ask if you want it with mozzarella or tofu, I can't remember anymore since I am a regular), also there is frozen soy yoghourt with many vegan topping options (different berries,dark chocolate,chocolate sauce,agave syrup and so on)and actually my omni friend liked the soy option more than the regular!Of course soy or almond milk for the drinks. Also most of the stuff is organic.

Quality-price ratio is great (just remember that Helsinki isn't very cheap so you can't compare it with places like Prague).

As a con I may add that even they have invested in nicer decor it still is at shopping center but still I usually enjoy the goods there. It's popular place so it's nice that they have new terrace too.

So, the conclusion is: you go there and enjoy!

Great place for a snack in city center

Posted on 02 / 15 / 2014

This place is situated in the heart of Helsinki, at the food court in the top floor of the mall called Forum. Their specialty is frozen yoghurt, which is also available as vegan soy version with a good assortment of different delicious toppings. All smoothies, juices and sandwiches are also available as vegan versions, so you can enjoy almost a complete meal here.

Pros: Vegan frozen yoghurt!, Everything available as vegan, Very central location
Cons: In sandwiches tofu isn't marinated/cooke
