Picnic-themed outdoor cafe in the heart of Helsinki, in Suvilahti.


Bringing more culture to the city

Katarsis is a new cafe concept in Helsinki, combining chillaxing, picnic and electronic music. We are open on July and August from Tuesday to Sunday. During the weekends, we have local electronic music DJs performing.

Our story

Katarsis brings picnic to the city. Katarsis has gotten influenced by the alternative culture of Berlin’s Kreuzberg, the eclectic Fitzroy in Melbourne and the new area of Mile-Ex in Montreal which is blooming from an old industrial area.


Katarsis is located in a park in Suvilahti with great accessibility.


Katarsis (Catharsis) from the Greek word “purification” refers to the purification of emotions through art or any extreme change in emotion that results in renewal and restoration. The mission of cafe Katarsis is similarly to offer relaxing experiences after a stressful spring.

Our values

We aim to provide locally produced plant-focused food. We avoid using plastic and aim to minimize our food waste.
