They have tasty waffles, served both as salty meals and sweet desserts. The gelatos were also good, I believe they are made on the spot. The cafe had a nice design and atmosphere to it.

Found this place a few years ago and was super happy with the delectable salmon waffle and the blueberry milkshake. So visiting now, had high expectations. Happily, they were exceeded - this bistro serves excellent price/quality ratio, topped with very friendly service.

TLDR: The instagrammable café in Rovaniemi, food and gelato is TOO GOOD. Check out their ”main ice cream bar”, sugar_rovaniemi from Instagram. If you know trendy young adults from Rovaniemi, you have seen Café 21, Yuca (Mexican food) and Sugar (spectacular ice cream) in your...social media feed. They also have ”normal ice cream booths” around the town. I mean, our reason to visit Rovaniemi was actually Sugar. We went to Café 21 for a quick lunch. As they have just reopened after covid, they serve resricted menu. We had El Pollos and Portobellos (burgers). Even our kids liked the El Pollos - had my spouse to taste it so he can made us something similar at home. Everything is instagrammable, but also delicious. As Sugar doesn’t have it’s own TripAdvisor page I’m gonna say something about it here. It serves gelato, bubble waffles and ”fantasy ice cream”. My kids danced out of happiness eating their portions, also ”Holy moly!” and ”OMG!” were heard. The ice cream booth’s back has a butterfly painting and you can take a picture of yourself with butterfly wings. I would take every kid and ice cream and fun-loving adults there in summer. You really should see their IG: @sugar_rovaniemiMore

We loved the place and had coffee and cake there twice. The staff is very friendly and attentive. Cake is super delicious and fair priced.

Good cocktails, excellent atmosphere and good, original tapas-style food. Informal and lively, well informed employees.

We are here during peak hours and the service was exceptionally slow as the sheer number of guests far outweighed the staff. The food however was good and so were the drinks and dessert 😊 The locals here like the place too, so strongly recommend!
