In a town that is starving for reasonable food and service it's not surprising that this comes top just now. But check again in 6 months. I was impressed today anyway. Both meat and fish were good. (Did not try desert - and they have never heard of Calvados). Photo of fois gras starter.

Typical Danish cafe with an ok menu and the same kind of price range of around 120-180 dkk per person for a set of food and drinks.

A perfectly fine afternoon lunch. The pasta dish was good and a nice size portion, but perhaps a bit oily. Price and quality match. A really nice feature is the big outdoor space, where you can enjoy your meal in the sun or shade.

We had lunch here with the family. Friendly staff, good food, nice atmosphere. They have a children's menu with three choices (all with French fries which could be better but the food was good).

A nice litte cafe. Have a small but decent brunch at a good price (for Denmark). Friendly staff, especially one dark haired girl. Worth a morning visit!

Upon arrival we were greeted by a nice staff. The brunch could have been more fun (bread spreads, sallads ect)and at least contained some complementary juice. The bread was however fresh and lovely! The location was very central.

We had a salat and a chicken sandwich - both were really good, and with juicy chicken inside. Service was good. The cafe/restaurant are though a bit worn down.

Went here for late dinner with our family. Ate two burgers and two wraps, burgers were good and taste, wraps were basic good. Service was fast when we came, but when we were leaving, no one came to ask about bill. Atmosphere seemed more like a bar than a restourant. All and all good basic place.
