Club Helsinki is a night club that hosts performances from some of the world's best musicians. This doesn't take anything away from the quality of the food served at their cafe next door. In this video, we include a very quick glimpse of the club during off hours, but the bulk of the report is concerned with the food. We show a quick view of the inside before settling for a seat in the front room where the sun gave us better light for filming.

Ben, our waiter was very knowledgeable about the food and made us feel right at home. We came between lunch and dinner to take advantage of the lighting and the low traffic. Though it is a good place for afternoon tea and dessert, we had dinner.

Anne had the special leek soup and Steve the house Borscht. Both soups were delicious and healthy tasting.

Steve's main course was the Finnish Meatballs which came with mashed potatoes, a light gravy and a lovely cucumber salad. Anne's dish was the Midnight Train to Moscow. We highly recommend this house specialty which is a combination of delicious apple chicken sausage, cooked red cabbage and potato latkes which all went extremely well together and were accompanied by homemade blueberry compote, applesauce, and sour cream.

The quality and the originality of the food deserves a high rating. This is a nice place to relax and have healthy comfort food.
