The most popular beach in Helsinki, “Hietsu”, finally got the kind of cafe and restaurant it deserves. Bistro BadenBaden opened up recently and I was pleasantly surprised with the style and the offering this new place has. Bistro BadenBaden has been decorated in a really fresh way, with many colors.
The menu includes a little bit of everything for everyone, like burgers, smoothies and cakes. They told me they cook and bake as many items themselves as possible. This year it’s been great when we’ve finally had some summer weather in Helsinki unlike last year. Let’s hope it will continue throughout the summer.
Hietsu beach is a local favorite and easily accessible with public transportation, by walking or by bike. There’s a city bike station almost next to Bistro BadenBaden. Are you ready to pack your speedos and sun lotion for your pop-up beach holiday in Helsinki? I’ve been a frequent guest this year so hope to see you there as well.
