PLACES TO EAT
Hakaniemi Market Square
The owner of the cosy coffee tent, Raija Kaattari, has been making porridge for the locals for over 40 years. Salmon sandwiches and home-baked goodies go well with coffee too.
Hakaniemi Market Hall
The small soup restaurant is popular during lunchtime. The menu changes daily but bouillabaisse and a vegetarian option are always available.
Kuja Bar & Bistro
The bistro-style restaurant serves casual food until late hours. A hearty brunch is available on Sundays.
