Cinnamon bun from Leipomo Keisari
Tadaa, today is Official Cinnamon Bun day so there’s honestly no better time to list my favourite places for a sweet treat when in Helsinki.
1. Kanniston Leipomo
This bakery is especially good for takeaway and their cinnamon bun was once voted as the best one in Helsinki by Helsingin Sanomat. There’s six bakeries in the centre, but the one in Punavuori is my favorite.
2. Cafe Fleuriste
This cute and small cafe in Punavuori district might give you french vibes but the cinnamon buns taste like Finland 😉
3. Cafe Esplanadi
Here you can get the biggest cinnamon buns ever! If you are not too hungry, share it with a friend.
4. Leipomo Keisari
Also my favorite for a takeaway bun. The cinnamon swirl is so good 😉 There’s several in the centre but the one in Kruununhaka is my favorite!
5. Cafe Regatta
Cute and tiny cafe right next to the sea. The cinnamon buns taste especially good after a little hike in Seurasaari island which is not too far away.
