Where to drink coffee?
Kaffebanken is the perfect place to make a stop when you are in Nordby. It has great coffee and even more important the most delicious almond croissant! The owners are always friendly and for the children they make babyccinos, which Theodora loves:)
When in Sønderho, you have to visit the Tre Søstre. It is probably the island's smallest café, with great food to go. They have delicious cakes and sandwiches, great coffee and juices and homemade Italian ice cream!
Where to eat?
Come here and enjoy organic and Italian inspired Cuisine from the sweetest local family. Cafe Aroma have great pasta dishes, pizza and there own brewed beer. The restaurant has an easy and relaxed atmosphere and a child friendly menu and surroundings. Great value for money.
Sønderho Kro is a beautiful and historical restaurant. It is one of the oldest Inns in Denmark and has a stunning view and surroundings. They use local products in their New Nordic Cuisine that embraces the old Danish culture in a contemporary way. We suggest going here to enjoy lunch in their idyllic garden.
A few years ago this old Inn got renovated and newly furnished with respect for Fanø Krogaard’s history and origin. It has the cosiest and most authentic restaurant with an amazing view over the sea and the many seals!
For the kids it is a must to go and eat pancakes at the Pancake house! We always go there at least once during our stay. They have both sweet and salty crepes and a kids menu:)
What to do?
The Forest playground is probably the most popular place for Theodora. Here her mother Carolin already climbed on the tree trunks when she was little. It is located in the middle of the island (easiest to access with the car) in a beautiful nature area. The playground consists of a lot of different equipment all made from forest materials.
Fanø Vaffel & Bolsjehus
At Fanø Vaffel & Bolsjehus they make traditional Danish hard candy, such as the famous Bolsjer. Here you can sign up for a candy cooking class and see them make the candy from scratch. This is a nice activity for kids and something Carolin remembers dearly from her own childhood.
In the middle of the main road in Nordby you find the old glass factory. It is always fascinating to come into the little boutique and see the glass blowers in action, creating art with their own hands and the same blowing techniques that were already used 2000 years ago.
