You can sample autumn flavours at the airport’s restaurants from the beginning of September.

The autumn flatbread (€6.40) is rich with fresh spices. The flatbread is filled with couscous and gets its flavour from lemon-chilli seasoned cabbage and toasted sweet pepper. Did you know that couscous, common to Northern African cuisine, is an excellent source of natural vegetable protein?

The flatbread is available from the following cafés as of 1 September: 

  • Café Tori (gates 26–27)
  • Go! Café (gate 20)
  • Seasons Café (gate 14)
  • Coffee Spoon (terminal 2)

Yoghurt made in our own kitchen

The flavours of autumn nature are preserved in yoghurt made in the cafés’ own kitchen.  The soft and rich lingonberry-apple yoghurt (€3.90) is a perfect breakfast or snack, and it can also be taken on the plane.  Available from the following cafés as of 1 September: 

  • Café Tori (gates 26–27)
  • Café Alvar (gate 24)
  • Go! Café (gate 20)
  • Coffee Spoon (terminal 2)

Local baker’s apple-fudge Danish pastries

This season’s Danish pastries are made by the skilful hands of bakers at the pH7 patisserie in Tuusula. The melt-in-your-mouth apple-fudge Danish pastry (€4.50) gets its taste from apple sections, genuine vanilla crème, and a fudge sauce made with a recipe closely guarded by the local patisserie.

You can treat yourself to an apple-fudge Danish pastry at the following cafés as of 1 September:  

  • Café Tori (gates 26–27)
  • Café Alvar (gate 24)
  • Fly Inn Deli (gate 27)
  • Go! Café (gate 20)
  • Seasons Café (gate 14)
  • Coffee Spoon (terminal 2)

Tasty pumpkin latte

The autumn world of flavours is supplemented by the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte (€5.50–6.50), which tastes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. This popular coffee drink is crowned with whipped cream. The Starbucks cafés are located at gate 32 and in terminal 2.
