Calling all Punavuori people! There is a new cafe in the neighborhood! Levain is the place and it is on point with the trend, menu, and atmosphere. Rumor has it everything is made in house too, only outsourcing to local suppliers for special offers.
This morning is the second time I have eaten here. After only opening its doors a week ago, popularity has picked up! I am grateful to see the healthy business for a one of a kind experience vs having just another franchise chain to conform to, but Punavuori is special like that. Almost everything is one of a kind here.
Levain is no exception with authenticity. After previously housing a trendy restaurant a few months last year, it closed their doors for the Christmas holiday (a common practice in Helsinki). For months afterward, they kept a sign in the window extending their “holiday” vacation into the early months of spring.
Finally, as Spring rolls around, this new beautiful little space graced our neighborhood with some delicious eats and treats. If you’re in the area, it is a must, you won’t be disappointed!
