Lovely container café
Why locals love it
Run by hippies, this beautiful cafe located right by the old seaport offers you a totally new way of looking at Helsinki. The unique surroundings with a graffiti fence, an urban garden, a common sauna and skateboard spots create a cool atmosphere. Various events are also held in the area in summer
Why you should visit it
As its name implies (ihana=lovely) Ihana kahvila is a wonderful meeting place. Have a cup of coffee, a piece of raw cake and admire the urban culture and the sea view. The trip here is an adventure itself as you'll have to walk through a construction site – just follow the signs and you'll find your way.
