KAPPELI – THE JEWEL OF ESPLANADI
Kappeli was built in 1867 in the middle of Esplanadi, in the heart of Helsinki. It was the place to be – and the place to be seen. It started out as a place where people came together, and it has stayed that way ever since. Kappeli witnessed the Golden Age of Finnish Art. Art that still adorns our walls.
Today, Kappeli offers a unique restaurant experience including a bar, café, restaurant, banqueting rooms in the cellar and an outdoor terrace. We are open every day.
Pure Finnish ingredients take pride of place in our menus. We are inspired by the dramatically changing seasons and their flavours and colours. We see ourselves as custodians of Finnish culinary culture. Our approach is classic cuisine that appeals to all the senses while paying respect to the art of cooking.
We are proud of our bread freshly baked in our own bakery and the selection of cakes and sweets at the café, all lovingly made by our skilled pastry cooks.
Kappeli’s café is one of the most traditional meeting places in Helsinki. In addition to a range of delicious sweet and savoury options, we serve traditional salmon soup from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Learn more about the café >>
