This little cafe, Cafe Cardemumma, is cute as a button and known for its delicious bakery products. The cakes, pies, quiches and cinnamon and cardamom rolls have their loyal fans. So much so, that when I chatted with the server while she was making my coffee and told her that I planned to write about them on this site, a customer from a near-by table insisted that I “must tell them and everyone that the cakes are just to die for”. I promised to do just that, because I do very much agree with her!
In addition to sweet things they have lunch salads and soups and have also started to offer brunch on Saturday mornings. Their coffee comes from the local Helsinki-based Kaffa Roastery and tea from The’-huone. Cardemumma is a lovely little addition to the Kallio scene, otherwise much dominated by bars and pubs.
