First Review by SCos

Cosy vegetarian cafe - Edit

Super nice cafe with all-vegetarian dishes. Service-minded staff. Neighbourhood feeling. Nice to stop by when visiting the Aalto house. Outdoor seating in summer.

Pros: Friendly staff, Tasty veggie foods & nice non-alcoholic beverages

Cons: Not very centrally located in Helsinki

Hidden veggie gem! - Edit

Veggie has become one of my favorite spots in Helsinki. The owners - Greek-born brothers - are super friendly. Surprise them by saying "Jassu" (hello! in Greek) and you'll get an extra-large smile.

My favorite dish the gluten-free savory pies (with some secret sauce making them so juicy) are always available. Lunch menu is changing weekly. When there's veggie moussaka on the list, some people call in advance to make reservations! Soups (often vegan) are great too. The carrot-coconut cake is vegan and goes well with green tea, but I usually fall for the nutty chocolate cake...

The decor is beautiful combining light taverna kind of chairs and nice little things collected from flea-markets. The characteristic wooden wall and side service table are self-made of recycled materials. Large windows give to the terrace, which baths on the late afternoon sun. There's also a big park, beach and the famous Alvar Aalto house & studio in the neighborhood. Not located in the center of Helsinki but very well connected with tram number 4 + several busses. Still a hidden gem, but has huge potential in becoming very popular.

Not so vegan friendly - Edit

Those photos posted here contain animal products (milk/eggs) and the menu does not contain any vegan options. There are occasionally (two times per week at the moment) vegan lunch options.

Would give only one "cow" rating point but for some reason this system does not allow to give less than two cows for a vegetarian restaurant.

Pros: Cosy interior

Cons: They use animal products a lot, No vegan options available
