The Moomin theme is present also in the café’s selection of food and delicacies.

Moomin Coffee serves a selection of sandwiches, like Sniff’s delicious chocolate bread, as well as Little My’s strawberry-vanilla valley, which is an enormous ice-cream sundae, and of course Moominmamma’s sweet pancakes, which are available with two different toppings. Also other dishes have potential for being a crowd-pleaser: one sandwich has eggs for eyes and the other meatballs.

“Ruby hunt is our way to combat boredom at the airport”

 

In addition to the delicious and eye-pleasing delicacies the Moomin Coffee café offers a possibility to go on a thrilling hunt for the missing ruby to help Moomintroll to find the lost gems. In the new Ruby Hunt AR game, passengers get to help Moomintroll fix his broken ruby by going on a treasure hunt around the airport.

“The Ruby hunt is similar to a treasure hunt which is a familiar game at children’s birthday parties, however augmented reality has been added,” Tero Asikainen from SSP Finland, the company behind the café, tells Moomin.com. “Sometimes a five hour layover can be a drag so the Ruby hunt is our way to combat boredom.”
