Ballard's newest Nordic café.

The Museum houses one of the city’s newest hotspots for Nordic cuisine, Freya. Freya offers a delicious menu of smørrebrød, personal smørgåsbord, Danish Dogs made with Uli’s Famous Sausage, and treats such as pepperkakor and toscakaka, along with other Scandinavian favorites. Freya also features craft cocktails made with fresh ingredients and liqueurs such as Aquavit and Brennivín. Chef Brendan Arntz, of Seattle’s innovative, award-winning City Catering Company, crafted the menu using the foundations of Nordic cuisine, influenced by the progressive palate of the typical Pacific Northwest foodie.

Freya is pleased to introduce Fika, a daily afternoon break from 3–5pm featuring $1 off pastries and 50% off cookies.
