It did not look so cozy from the outside, but on the inside it was nice and cozy. The food was just fine not to fancy but value for the money. The todays soup was great, we took it 2 days in a row. The staff was very nice.

Lovely coffee and lunch. We took home a lot more home made chocolate than anticipated. You can also buy pictures from photographers which are on display in the store. We think the prices are a bit excessive.

I visited Longyearbyen with my brother and elderly mother. This cafe became our favourite place to stop for lunch with a good range of hot and cold food and daily specials. The prices are very reasonable in comparison to other local places and the portion sizes are HUGE. Fantastic chocolates too!

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
