Fazer Café Kluuvikatu 3
+358 20 729 6702
Fazer Café Kluuvikatu 3 has been in the heart of Helsinki ever since its founding in 1891. It is far more than a café; it is also a delicacy shop for outstandingly delicious treats. Karl Fazer’s advice to his descendants was Carpe Diem–seize the day when opportunities present themselves, but be well prepared for doing so. Karl was always a step ahead of his time, and we continue to honour that heritage.
Two great loves
Karl Fazer was 18 years old when he decided to fulfil his dream and study to become a confectioner. To achieve this, he needed to go all the way to St. Petersburg, Berlin and Paris. Returning to Helsinki, on 17 September 1891, Karl Fazer established a café that soon became the most popular in the city and the place to be seen.
One fine day, Berta Blomqvist also came into the café. The young beauty enraptured Fazer and soon the couple were inseparable. After their wedding, Berta and Karl worked side by side developing recipes and the café from morning till night.
From café to icon
Fazer´s products were excellent and through the production of chocolate, his reputation grew internationally. Customers liked the happy Karl Fazer who did everything possible to exceed his customers´ expectations. Up to 2,000 pastries could be sold in one day.
Over the years, Fazer presented the world with ever more delicious pastries. As the business passed from one generation to the next, the Fazer name became an icon. And all this had its beginning in 1891 with one young man´s love for taste sensations.
