“Great for an excellent club sandwich”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

This little cafe sits tucked away across the harbour from the Marina Hotel - and just near the Viking Museum. We went there yesterday for a quick, late lunch snack. Chose the Club Sandwich and it was quite simply the best one I have ever had (and I've had lots) in my life.
My wife had a delicious chocolate cake, served warm.
A simple, unpretentious cafe with lovely food.
Charming proprietor too.
