Carusel “the house by the sea” is a cool café & restaurant in Kaivopuisto. Its round shape and the windows that are all the way from the ceiling to the floor guarantee that you will get a good view from where ever you sit. The place has a chilled out feeling.
In winter I go there for hot chocolate. I sit by the fire place inside and watch the snow falling outside. In summer I sit in one of the wooden couches outside and drink ice tea. The place changes a lot during the season, thanks to the big windows. It is, as the rest of Finland is, the best in summer time though!
There are concerts and other happenings around the year. They serve good breakfast, lunch, café and drinks, but I think the best thing you can eat there is their pizza!
