Last week I told you about Löyly. Now it’s time to look at the two other restaurants in the area of Hernesaari.
In May we had an unexpected heat wave in Helsinki. Hopefully there’s more of that in store this summer. Anyway, the area of Hernesaari was full of people enjoying this rare phenomenon.
First, you will stumble upon Birgitta. They have a lovely terrace and great burgers. You can find quality coffee, pastries and drinks here too.
The building itself has a very cool design and it was the log house of the year in 2014 awarded by the Finnish log house manufacturers’ alliance.
It’s definitely a place to people watch, as it’s right by the shoreline and a path going to Hernesaaren ranta. Great views of the sea too.
In the middle, you will find Löyly but if you walk on, you will be greeted by Hernesaaren Ranta.
You can arrive with your own boat, as there is a dock reserved for this.
Sitting here you can gaze at the boats coming and going.
A disco ball means a dance floor.
I’m not sure if there’s a dance floor in this tent too.
In these containers, you will find different restaurants. This area is closed in winter.
My daughter attended a concert here called Summerburst and saw Kygo among others. I however will be going to see a Finnish band called Eppu Normaali in August.
I still haven’t had a chance to try Cone’s. They have crepes filled with sweet or savoury goodies. It’s on my bucket list for this summer.
There’s many places to sit and enjoy your food.
Would you like to sit on a beach chair or perhaps by the table?
I think I’d choose a beach chair.
We tried Thai Papaya’s fare – very tasty with fresh ingredients.
Wouldn’t it be cool to sit in a booth like this with your friends?
The partying continues throughout the night.
Have you been to either of these places? Do you have nice summer restaurants where you live?
