The recipe for the massive success of Sis Deli + Café, a chain of deli-cum-cafés in Helsinki, is clever branding, carefully chosen organic ingredients from local suppliers, and a simple, no-nonsense interior by design studio Muotohiomo using furniture and wall decorations by Finnish Artek and Klaus Haapaniemi.

Behind it all are sisters Any Syrmä and Kaisa Leikola who were missing a modern take on the national culinary classics and wanted to offer a wholesome alternative to the conventional fast food. From the freshly baked rolls served from seven a.m. in the morning right down to the biodegradable packaging, Sis Deli + Café points to a refreshingly new way of eating mindfully even when you are in a hurry.
