As we walked along the lovely Esplanade in the middle of Helsinki, we couldn't help but notice a very attractive building that lured us in. It wasn't time for lunch or dinner, but we thought we would have a glass of wine. There is a cafeteria-style line and I was very tempted by a cake displayed there: we were told it was Daim (pronounced "dime") Cake, chocolate and nuts and someone said corn, but that may have been a translation problem. Anyway, with two glasses of wine and a piece of cake, we found a pleasant place to sit in one of the glassed-in corners of the restaurant and enjoyed our snack. The cake was delicious! I always like to try a really local treat and this was a great one.Everything else in the display case looked fresh and inviting too. I would certainly recommend it as a pleasant place to have lunch.
