It’s early in the morning, and you find yourself at the airport with a coffee in hand and a rumbling stomach. You’re facing a long flight and have very specific culinary preferences, or your airline of choice won’t be serving a mid-air breakfast.
Helsinki Airport shops and restaurants provide a range of tasty snacks that you can grab while shopping tax-free, and eat later on the plane – without breaking the travel budget. Here are our top suggestions:
'Swing by Cafe Tori (Gates 26-27) for a classic porridge, a healthy mango-chia version or a fresh fruit salad (€3.90-5.40).
You can also find chia bowls in T1’s Johan & Nyström (Gate 13).
If you’re in need of a heartier meal, give Tapio Café’s (Gate 24) bacon and egg bagel a go (€6.90).
Another good option is the Wine & View (Gate 26) breakfast: for €9.90, you get a croissant with brie, ham and lettuce, yoghurt with granola and cloudberry jam, and an Americano.
Upper Crust (Gate 19) specialize in baguettes. Start your morning flight well with a Salmon or Ham Benedict Baguette (€6.90-7.50). Prefer to assemble your own breakfast?
Try out Fly Inn (Gate 27), who serve a plentiful breakfast buffet 6am-10am daily for €16.90.
Or, go to the Alepa store (Terminal 2, arrivals hall 2B) for anything from fruit and vegetables to snack on, to sandwiches, Karelian pies, and your favourite sweet and salty treats.
