Hammerhavns Kiosken, Hammerhavn

A good sandwich is underrated, if you ask us. And at Hammerhavnens Kiosken, just a short way outside Sandvig, you can sink your teeth into a really good one. Perhaps even the best sandwich on Bornholm. People gladly make the trip across the island to enjoy one of the kiosk's freshly-made sandwiches for lunch, and with the view of Hammershus and the Baltic Sea, Hammeshavns Kiosken is without a doubt one of our favourite lunch spots.

If sandwiches aren't to your liking, the kiosk also offers other dishes such as salads, toasts, and sausages. Have a drink as well! Choose from cold or warm beverages, or satisfy your sweet tooth with homemade cakes and ice cream.

Opening hours: Varies throughout the year, see opening hours here.

Det Griser, Allinge

Are you on the hunt for one of Bornholm's perhaps best roast pork burgers (and a big one at that) with crispy fries, delicious onion rings and refreshing drinks? Then stop by Det Griser at the harbour in Allinge.

Det Griser's menu is short and simple, and that's only a positive thing. Because then you know that a lot of love is put into the food - and that results in tasty food!

Most of the food at Det Griser is homemade, home-pickled and home-stirred. You can e.g. sink your teeth into a big roast pork burger with crispy pork rinds, a luxery hot dog with delicious toppings and a halloumi burger with ramson mayo. Don't miss out on a round of fries, onion rings or chili cheese tops as a side. 

Det Griser is open all day (see opening hours), so you can also enjoy dinner here, if that works better for you.

Opening hours: Varies throughout spring, summer and autumn, see opening hours here.

Norresan, Gudhjem

Down by the harbour in the northern part of Gudhjem, you will find the cosy, little coffee bar and café Norresan. Sip on a lovely brew of coffee and assuage your hunger with local, homemade food in the form of light dishes. Often you'll be able to get a "sandwich of the day" consisting of homemade bread and lovely spreads. Norresan is also known for it's delicious potato on ryebread. Take your lunch to-go or enjoy it inside the beautiful Norresan or in their outdoor area with a breathtaking view of the Baltic Sea.

Besides the terrific lunch, Norresan is also the place to go if you're in the mood for a steaming cup of coffee, a superb gin & tonic, or a refreshing lemonade. In summer, Norresan is also a fantastic place to watch the sunset with a drink in your hand.

Christiansøpigens Sild, Svaneke

Every summer, the small fish factory at the harbour in Svaneke, Christiansøpigens Sild, opens up for their little shop, which is also known as Silden.

Here you can satisfy your lunchtime hunger with a round of crisp and well-prepared fish n chips: Fresh cod in crispy, deep-fried batter, great fries (or chips if you will) and homemade remoulade. Simple, but extremely delicious and a place we like to visit several times during the summer.

Christiansøpigens Sild - or Silden - only serves fish n chips, and for this reason, they absolutely know what they are doing when it comes to preparation of the food. It's fresh and greasy - everything a good round of fish n chips should be.

The shop is only open during high season (June, July and August), so hurry up before the season is over. 

Address: Gruset 7, 3740 Svaneke

Bakkarøgeriet, Pedersker

Bornholm is known for its smokehouses. So why not eat smoked fish for lunch while here? There are a bunch of terrific smokehouses on Bornholm, but Bakkarøgeriet is one of our favourites for lunch. Everyday the smokehouse prepares a fresh batch of smoked goods: salmon, mackerel, shrimp, and, of course, the local speciality, smoked herring. One of the really popular dishes at Bakkarøgeriet is their "Stjerneskud", which we can definitely recommend! 

The place is a traditional Bornholmer smokehouse combined with a restaurant; fish specialities along with the local dish, Sol over Gudhjem (Sun above Gudhjem) are what's on the menu. If the weather is nice, enjoy your lunch on the smokehouse's terrace, overlooking the Baltic Sea.
