Great little cafe for treats in Henningsvaer. It’s also random but they sell a ton of candles that are colorful and super pretty. It's a great place to stop and enjoy the local flavor.

Fresh sandwiches made on the minute with salmon/shrimps. The cinnamon rolls and vanille pastries are a must for a nice roadtrip on the day ahead.

We stayed in Henningsvær for 2 nights and went for breakfast there both mornings. We loved both visits! Everything is perfect - from the delicious cakes to the cinnamon rolls and not to mention the shrimp on a slice of bread! Coffee is great, too....More

Beside production of candle lights, this is also a retro cafe that serves all what you expect to find, and more. Located close to everything in Henningsvær, this is a great place to start exploring this small town. Pictures taken in July 2018

This is a charming spot in Henningsvær. Honest, warm and really good carrotcake (make it themselves). Soya latte good as well.
