Brunch is a safe bet when you are hungry and craving for comfort food as it is relatively cheap, and you mostly get loads of hearty food.

And, what’s more, it is a very family friendly way of eating as you can bring your kids along. 

One of the first to serve trendy brunch was Dylan (, now a chain of casual eateries.

They have two very popular branches in central Helsinki, Dylan Milk (Porkkalankatu 5) and Block by Dylan (Eteläesplanadi 2) that serve only breakfast, lunch and brunch.

Making a reservation for the brunch is highly recommended.

The very stylish yet informal Block has nice views over the market and sea.

Sandro (Kolmas linja 17 & Tehtaankatu 34, is one of the most popular brunch places in Helsinki.

The brunch is often fully booked weeks beforehand, so make a reservation.

They serve excellent North African food and the atmosphere is relaxed.
