Museum's Nordic-inspired Restaurant

Now Open For Breakfast And Lunch

Ballard's beloved Nordic café is back!

Enjoy culinary delights from Café Hagen before or after your visit. Called a "little slice of Scandinavian heaven," Café Hagen also has two popular locations in South Lake Union and Queen Anne. We're delighted to partner with them for the best in Nordic cuisine at the Museum's restaurant Freya. 

At Freya, we're now serving up artisan breads and pastries made fresh every day with a lot of love and hygge. Look for open-faced sandwiches, quiche, salads, soup, desserts, and more. Enjoy hot coffee, espresso, or tea as well as a selection of iced drinks. Take home a loaf or specially made buns for home consumption. Check the menu for new Nordic cuisine and Ballard brunch or lunch favorites:
