Hidden just a bit below street level across from the University of Helsinki, this distinctly American-style café is a popular hangout for faculty and students alike. With a menu straight from Santa Monica (and translated into Finnish), Espresso Edge whips up great smoothies (EUR3-4), lattes (EUR2-4), soups (EUR4-6.50), sandwiches (Eur4-6.50), salads (EUR7) and sweets (EUR2-4). Vegetarians will fare well here, as well as those who prefer organic ( luomu in Finnish) and fair-trade ( reilukauppa ) products. Bring a book and stay for hours or drop in for a quick, healthy lunch amongst the locals.
