Nice place for a beer with a good view of the harbour. It is in a quieter end of the town near a museum, on the way to the breakwater and lighthouse.

The decoration differs from the mainstream cafes. You can cover your apettite with one of the cold and hot dishes they serve and there are quite enough board games to spend the rest 2-3 hours there. Mostly a place for students, slow and happy.
