Great place to sit down and relax after a stroll through Henningvær. This place seems to be always filled with customers, and no wonder why. They have plenty of different cakes to choose from, great and tasty sandwiches and it seems to be even possible to order pizza. And the price, it's too good to be true for Norwegian standards....

As we live in Svolvaer we often take a sunday-trip to Henningsvaer. Walking around Henningsvaer is a great experience, any time of the year. This nice, cozy, Cafe often rounds up our trip. Great small pastries and good coffee.

Super cozy and comfortable cafe with very nice pastries. It is beautifully decorated with comfy chairs and couches as well as standard tables. You are surrounded by the luminous hand dipped candles used to decorate the space which is really charming. Fresh hot pastries baked all day, can't beat it!

Very nice and cozy. Great lunch menu, and good variety of cakes and pastries. You can also buy beautiful handdipped candles, and they sometimes offers customers to make their own candles.

We totally love the look of this cafe. So so chic and pretty. The cakes are pretty awesome too, it feels like home to be here. The cashier/waitress is also a very friendly woman. This place has made a memory for us. 😊

Last day in Lofoten had the very common cold rainy weather, so needed a space to sit and relax - this place is perfect, large, with comfortable chairs and big windows. Also great wifi! Coffee "ok" which means it's better than pretty much all of Lofoten except maybe "Bacalao" in Svolvær. Food and cake good too, so recommend as a... More

Henningsvær lysstøperi og kafé is a cozy café in the middle of Henningsvær with a good range of pastries, food, coffee and other drinks of high quality. In the afternoon they serve wood oven-fired pizzas as well. Recommended for a tasty lunch!

Although it may get really crowded during July and August, this cafe is worth a visit. They have some superb cookies, and especially cinnamon rolls. Along with very good coffee and interesting furnishing it should be a stop in your visit in Henningsvær!
