For both museum visitors and locals alike, Freya Cafe will open this May inside the new Nordic Museum on the Market St. side. The space (above) is still under construction.
Prepared by City Catering, the menu spans several Scandinavian countries from a Swedish-inspired “personal smörgåsbord” to Danish smørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches) and “The Hund” and “Great Dane” sausage dogs. The cafe will also offer a selection of aquavit, reports Seattle Weekly.
These are mostly small, shareable plates with prices in the $8-12 range.
Together with the upcoming opening of the Skål Beer Hall on Ballard Ave., it seems Ballard is getting a bit of a re-infusion of Scandinavian cuisine and beverages.
When Freya opens, its hours will be Tuesday to Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (open until 8 p.m. Thursdays). The Nordic Museum’s grand opening is slated for May 5th.
