Cafe Ursula, Helsinki…lovely setting

9.45am Sunday morning, BeRt and I walked along the coast down to the southern tip of the city and went to the Cafe Ursula in the park of Kaivopuisto which over looked the island of Soumenlina – lovely setting from which you can admire the wonderful sight of the Gulf of Finland.

There is a wide selection of pastries and local bakeries to choose from to go along with your coffee. Their pastries are quite tasty and sandwiches and cakes are good too. I watched with keen interest at a couple had champagne breakfast on a neighbouring table. (the tables are quite close to one another). The round shape of the main room is interesting and makes observing the view pleasant. The sun shines directly onto the front of the café, and the outdoor terrace would be great to lounge around during the summer months.

I hear this place was first set up as a temporary facility for the 1952 Olympic games. It is still here. This has to be one of the classic coffee houses in Helsinki.This is still the true truth as I still say it as it is…
