Recommended by the Kiruna tourist office, and it appears to be very popular! French press coffee, desserts and light lunches. I had an excellent crustless cheese quiche. Cafe Safari is an easy walk from the tourist office, city hall, the church, and the bus platform area.

Kiruna offers no plethora of great cafes, this is surely the best on offer. An abundant supply of sweets and salt.A character in the city where you hang out with tourists and residents

Looks like most of Kiruna goes there for coffee and cake and no surprise there. Great service, great coffee, great cakes, ticks all the boxes in my book.

Coffee/cappuccino is really tasty. They have a quite large selection of pastries and sandwiches, not too bad. Overall a good option to warm you up when it's freezing outside.

Nice café in central Kiruna. Good option for a light and quick lunch (sandwiches, salads, quiche, etc). Delicious desserts, cakes and pastries. Also for takeaway.

When we arrived to be seated we were not acknowledged for a while. After we ordered food came at different times. Some people finished their dinners while other peoples just arrived. When our food came they brought the wrong order. I do give them credit however they compensated us with a free meal for the screw up, but by that... More

Very popular for fika. Fairly large offering of sandwiches and pastries. Decent coffee/more than decent tea. Unique seating areas upstairs with communal magazines for guests to borrow. Well staffed to meet the demands of peak times.

Called in for something small and ordered a couple of ciabattas. The reindeer meat was great. Quaint layout with comfortable seating. Worth a call in here.

So we had our noon break there. The atmosphere was very nice and cozy with many locals. The reindeer sandwich was okay. But the cakes are delicious. Worth a try!

Went here for lunch and ordered a panini and muffin. They were both pretty good, but I probably should've ordered something else on the menu. I could kinda tell that what I ordered wasn't their specialty. I'd definitely ask whoever worked there what I should get next time. The atmosphere was the place's strongest point. I sat upstairs on a... More
