Café Fríða is more than a café, it is a food experience and a storytelling café, where guest will feel the culture of the Northern Faroe Islands.
The café is named after the first ship built by the Faroese people. It was pioneer Nólsoyar Páll that had Royndin Fríða built, 250 years ago, Royndin Fríða was built illegally and in hiding. Today it is recognized to have had great significance for the faroese people.
The café is located on Klaksvik’s main road, and on the other side of the café is the beach with a great view over the village and the bay. This is where Royndin Fríða laid duck in between trips to Europe.
From the balcony you have a great view towards the home and boathouses of Nólsoyar Páll and his family. These are now being rebuilt and restored as museums and monuments.
The café is run by a team of younger and older men and women. The staff is friendly, well trained and if possible always willing to chat and share local stories with guests.
Café Fríða welcomed its first guests the 1st of March 2014.
