It opens at 10am ...so nice to come in for coffee (nok 25 +) and pastry, but the soups are delicious and filling for less than 100 nok. Full of locals and in season, tourists, and the speciality is actually chocolate. But so much more...More

Food options in Longyearbyen are limited, but this place was so good we kept coming back. Simple sandwiches - salmon and egg salad, for example, on some of the best bread rolls I've ever had. A wide range of coffees, teas, beer, soft drinks. And...More

This cafe was very warm and cosy and seemed very popular.. the food was delicious and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The portion sizes were surprisingly surprisingly. Overall I would recommend this to anyone and would definitely return back :)

Good quality sandwiches and specials for lunch here, good coffee and some very fine chocolate as it doubles as a chocolatier. Good for gifts and for yourself.

This is at the back of a shopping precinct but offers really nice freshly prepared cafe food and excellent coffees at a reasonable price,

Given that options for food variety are limited in Longyearbyen, it is important for visitors to know that absolutely fabulous coffee and snacks (and tasty breakfast and lunch items) can be found at Fruene. It is also the world's northernmost chocolate maker, with hand-made chocolates...More

The place is nice and convenient. We had waffles (a bit too greasy) and vanilla buns for breakfast. We also had lunch with sandwiches. Too bad they have no wifi.

For me I only had one day there and could have done with a lot more but we used it as a port for our cruise around Svalbard. I did dog sledding at Longyearbyen with Green Dog which was very good. There are many other things... More
