Café Talo is a great café right next to the Hakaniemi market hall. The coffees are really nice, so I recommend skipping the more bitter, expensive coffee when you visit the “kauppahalli” and stop by here instead after you’re done with your shopping! I love their high ceilings, randomly chosen furniture and wall colors. My favorite are the two armchairs that are on the left hand upper corner when you enter, probably the “most intimate public place” in Helsinki.
Café Talo is a place that’s ideal for a nice afternoon coffee or also a cocktail at night, or try their brunch on a lazy Sunday!
What’s also Interesting is their selection of boardgames and movies that you can choose for the place! Talo really invites you to spend hours there, try every drink on their menu and play a few games or just watch people pass by through the huge windows that give you a nice view on the main street of the Kallio district.
