Any adventure will become a tad lovelier after a moment spent Moominously. The cosy new Moomin Coffee café sees passengers off for their flights with treats inspired by Moominvalley in magical surroundings built to make the experience Moominous. Located at Helsinki Airport next to gate 40 at the Non-Schengen area, Moomin Coffee café is the world’s first Moomin branded café at an airport.
Moomin Coffee café offers passengers the opportunity to enjoy delicious food in the relaxed and warm ambiance that is familiar from the Moomin stories.
Delicacies inspired by Moominvalley and Moominmamma’s recipes
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.
“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.
Each poster includes a new adventure.
“Sometimes a five hour layover can be a drag so the Ruby hunt is our way to combat boredom,” Tero Asikainen from SSP Finland tells Moomin.com.
You can play Ruby Hunt after security controls at Terminal 2 and non-Schengen terminal. In order to start the ruby hunt you will need to download the Arilyn AR –application and the map.
The route has been brought into effect in collaboration with ZOAN, Arilyn and Hartwall Jaffa.
