The Café



The Café/shop is a pice of well preserved faroese history, still in use today.  On the ground floor we have a nice little kiosk with all the expected products - here we have to mention the delicious ice cream, that people tend to drive all the way to Fámjin to eat. In the summer we also offer newly baked wafles, which the guests absolutely love. In the summer it is usual, to se a lot of tourist sitting outside the house, on the nice stone terrace, enjoying an ice-cream or a wafle. The house also has a nice room on the attic - her groups of up to 20 people can be seated, if the weather isn't at its best. Toilet is also in the house.

The Café

About 125 years old, the small café   is a historical landmark for the village.


Established in the late 1800's by the Mortensen family of Tvøroyri, the house was run as a local market for the villagers. Here, the villagers bought what they themselves couldn't grow or hunt. Here you had a chat and solved all the troubles in the world.


Today, the house is almost just as it was back then, and when visiting, you feel like you are in another century.


In the summertime, the house is a café and kiosk, with a large outdoor terrace on both ground- and 1. floor..
