Busy with guests, great service, good selection of typical Norwegian lunch choices, great chocolate (even white chocolate polar bears) and good coffee. The ambience is very Longyearbyen -mix of locals, explorers, miners and tourists. Enjoy!

We had a wonderful soup lunch here whilst in Longyearbyen. Great bread to go with it and excellent coffee. What more could you need? Highly recommended

We had a delicious lunch here. Kids ate pizza, grilled ham & chs, tomato soup. Grown-ups had Thai noodle salad as well as a chili con carne. Good mix of options. The adult meals came with tasty sides of salad and freshly baked bread. Generous portions. They also sell chocolates which my kids were eyeing. We will have to go... More

This is a popular cafe among the Locals and Tourists. Sometimes very crowded. A variety of Sandwicher, salads and Cakes plus home made Luxury Chocklades. We had Sandwiches and Water. Value for money

Very nice decoration and atmosphere. It smells all around the shopping center! Increvable! Great choice of delicious fine chocolates they make there. Quite expensive but the northernmost chocolaterie of the planet!

Fruene is located in the small shopingcenter, Lompensenteret, in the center of the small town. They serve good lunch, cakes, and some homemade chocolates. Everything tastes fine. We had lunch there one day. The gulasjsoup is as good as you will find in its homeland Hungary, and sanwiches tastes good as well. The wine is good and cheap (relatively). Service... More

We were in Longyearbyen to join an Arctic Expedition and arrived a day earlier, so were looking for somewhere for lunch. On a walk up the main...and only... street, on a bright sunny day, we saw people dining at outdoor seating, and liked what we saw. We ventured inside where pre- made sandwiches and rolls were available, but you could... More

Visited here with a group of friends this week. We had disembarked from our ship and nowhere was open. They opened up for us to have hot drinks while we waited for the shops etc to open. Great hot chocolate and excellent customer service. We were a large group so it was worth their while but they were the only... More

Like all visitors to Longyearbyen, when you arrive you may be hungry. We walked up the street and the first place we saw was full of people eating and speaking many languages. This seemed like a good recommendation to stop. The initial response is you may need to be local to find out how to order. Not so. English is... More
