One very gray and rainy Sunday in Helsinki, we wanted to do something fun together, so we decided to go out to visit some museums (click the link to read more) and for lunch. This time the lunch place was something new for us: The Mumin Kaffe, a caféteria with all the Moomin characters!
The Moomins used to be a part of our own childhood, so of course, we like Iris to get to know with them too. Iris doesn’t watch that much cartoons yet, but she already knows the Moomin characters. The Moomins are very deep in Finnish kid’s culture and their pictures are everywhere.
Have to say that that combination is a brilliant idea - child-friendly café, the Moomins, enjoyable atmosphere with fresh decoration and Finnish design and pastry. We tried their fresh salads and toasts with lots of good coffee. Iris’ absolutely favourite thing was the baby’s chair: a swing! How fun is that! Iris loved to swing while eating her salty pie.
The most genius idea is the playground for kids who have already enjoyed their food and drinks. There are Moomin toys and books and good space to play. Iris played with older kids while we watched her from our table and took one cup more coffee. Elias also read a Moomin book with her and she wanted to have them all!
There are already three Moomin cafés in the central area of Helsinki, and they’re opening more cafés in Stockholm this spring.

The Mumin Kaffe is not just for the kids and their families, but it is for everyone who likes the Moomins. There were also couples and friends without children. That is because we Finns love the Moomins. What a nice concept!
