Located right in the town square of Longyearbyen, and really easy to find once you know to look for the skateboard ramp directly opposite the cafe. Besides the story value of telling friends that you went to the northernmost bakery, cafe and chocolatier in the world, it's actually a wonderfully great place to visit in town. As you step inside, you'll smell the freshly baked breads and pastries, and freshly ground coffee. There a several savoury meals on offer too, with a variety of sandwiches and pizzas available. Without doubt, our favourite treat was the glazed cinnamon scrolls, and be sure to ask for it to be served warm. The chocolates were very cute, and a nice gift for those back home... taking full advantage of the polar bears in the region.

As a testament to the quality of the cafe, we noticed that many locals dropped in for lunch. The walls were filled with many beautiful wildlife photographs, many of which could be bought from the gallery.

Overall, great little cafe in a cute little town!

Always busy, crowdy and finding a table is often a battle, but this is the only place where you will get a decent coffee, home made ice-cream, good pastries and chocolates. Fruene Kaffe does not have WiFi, but this is an advantage - you will not find there people with laptops, just families and friends chatting, making the place warm and cosy despite the temperatures outside.

Just a coffe and a danish or a full meal?? Informal place with food of high quality. It seems to be a very poppular place in the city centre of Longyearbyen

Very friendly and well run café in the middle of Longyearbyen. Here you will definitely meet the locals as well.

They have a reasonable selection of food, if not large. What they do serve, they do serve well. This time I went with the pasta salad. Not only tasty, but also a lot of food if you are really hungry.

It's usually quite full around noon on weekdays as a quite a few locals have their lunch there.
