We came here for a bit to eat and while the food is good, it was a bit pricey (even for Denmark). €26 for a plate of nachos, a chicken sandwich and two beers. I understood from the signage that the place is volunteer-only, which might explain the 3 or 4 staff standing behind the counter looking at their phones,... More

Great café with great food operated by volunteers from all over europe. Often live music and djs at the café in the evening. There is also a big concert venue at Gimle as well as a night club in the weekends.
