At the edge of the pier on Indre Kvarøy, you’ll find the bustling life at Tampen Café—a surprisingly urban lunch spot in the midst of an exciting, small coastal community.

At Tampen Café, you’ll discover a lunch spot with a beautiful view, intriguing interior, and a warm, down-to-earth atmosphere. The menu includes coffee and other café drinks, delicious lunch options, homemade cakes, and Tampen’s own ice cream, as well as exciting drinks and snacks from local small producers.

The friendly hosts will warmly welcome you, quickly making you feel at home in the little island community. It’s so cozy, in fact, that you’ll need to take off your shoes when you come inside. And what could be better than sitting in your socks, wiggling your toes, with good food, a great view, and pleasant company?

For groups

Tampen Café also offers meeting facilities with lunch for groups of up to 20 people. Contact them by email for inquiries and booking.
