A chocolate kiss on a glazed spring veranda

Helsinki, -2 degrees

If yesterday was a regular super snowy winter day, today was a clear sign of spring! This morning the sunbeams were exceptionally bright! The air felt brisky and we had about 0 degrees, even plus degrees in the sun! The snowflakes glistened on the crusts of snow while the birds were singing!

What would be a better day to enjoy a good cup of Italian coffee on the glazed veranda of one of Helsinki's oldest cafés Kappeli in the company of one of my best friends?

I especially liked the colorful gingerbread they had today, and I bought one of Finland's most popular treats, a Brunberg kiss, for my friend, I was so happy to see her! Have you ever tried them? Can't you just feel the sweet soft foam taste on your lips? Yummy!

  1. so far i like your site i have just a few suggestions:
    maybe you could make your site to appear a little bit more personal than generally giving informations for example
    generally its well build and written but some things are missing for example here:

    Nolla is a restaurant that serves both luunch and a la carte. Food is served from early morning until late night. In the evenings the restaurant is a popular place to meet up with friends. Dj's play music. Nolla also hosts trendy clubs.
    this is a very generic description of that place, it doesn't make me want to go there, maybe u should say what kind of dishes and cocktails it serves not all but the best ones, why should i eat a certain dish there etc.
    also this:

    Accomodation in a quiet environment, AEL-Hotel is situated close to the AEL Center for Technical Training in Malminkartano, approx. 10km from the Helsinki city centre.
    nice description of a hotel but maybe u should have some pictures of it and better maybe u could have people that went there in some point to review the hotel, it just makes it even more personal if i know that someone has been there and they loved it then i will consider going.
    most of your descriptions are well written but there are flaws here and there.
    i am not trying to critisize or anything u are doing a great work u just asked my advice and i am trying to help u out as much as i can

    1. Thank you for your suggestions, I cherish them all! I will take into consideration everything you said, kind of adding tripadvisor to our page, that is at least what I understand. For sure you've got a point, let's see how much it would cost us though. We always have to keep in mind that we are the official tourist office of Helsinki, so our main task is to give neutral information about places and sights.
