Open and airy cafe in the culture house, next to the library. Open 11-16 every day. Serve coffees, hot chocolate, a variety of cakes and baked goods as well as wraps etc for lunch. Plenty of seating.

We visited Rabalder several times during our stay in Longyearbyen. It is a cool place, relaxed atmosphere, very friendly employees and excellent tasting food. Can highly recommend it!

Right in the centre of town, lovely place for coffee or hot chocolate - and the best cinnamon rolls in town. A place for locals too. Friendly service and highly recommended for lunch or a snack.

I needed a cup of coffee and a snack after a hard morning riding in a dog carriage. Rabalder filled the bill as it serves excellent coffee and cakes. As I was in Norway I decided to have a Norwegian waffle with brown cheese and...an espresso. In fact it was pretty good. Staff were very pleasant and the cafe is well appointed. It is also next door to the Library...which is very modern and light with many books and helpful staffMore

we had been to this coffee shop the previous day but it had already closed for the day. Went for coffee and cake and found it open. it is situated with a common entrance to the local "library" The menu is varied and you go...to the counter and order what you want. We ordered two latte coffees and a pastry. The coffee came in a glass and was a bit different to what I expected but nevertheless it was good. The pastry looked better than it was but still it was tasty.More
