Good Place To Work Helsinki – Café Tarina

Good Place To Work Helsinki – Café Tarina

Lately, I’ve worked a lot from cafés and other places while ”on the road”. And I thought it would be good idea to start sharing my good finds in here too. No matter how trendy “sport” this is, finding a good remote work place isn’t easy, especially when in need for good WiFi, power outlets and reasonable prices. There are few listings up around the internet, but I thought I could add my own comments and reviews of places I can recommend for working, meetings and similar.

First up is Helsinki, capital of Finland. And in there, a place bit far from the city centre, nevertheless good. It’s a café with a hint of bistro, called Café Tarina. It comes with excellent service, relaxed, cool and quiet atmosphere, fast Wifi (ask for the password) and excellent cinnamon rolls. On the minus side, it’s far from city centre (appr. 20mins with public transport) , it’s crowded and a bit noisy during lunch rush hour, Helsinki priced, and it has no power outlets easily available. So remember extra power and some more cash for a good and productive work day.

I might make it a Monday tradition to add more places like this here, so stay tuned if and when you also like your workdays with cinnamon rolls and good coffee. They’ll come with a tag “good place to work”. Until that, let’s keep on typing and surviving another work week the best we can.
