We visited the cafe twice for lunch in our 3-day holiday in Rovaniemi. I recommend their waffle and creamy salmon soup. Also don't forget to have a cup of complementary coffee after your lunch. Comfortable environment and reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Service was friendly. Food OK. Cocktails not worth the $$ Wine list good, but 9Euro for a small glass?

We stopped at this place several times to have a drink (or two :)). The cocktails are delicious and the price is reasonable for Finland prices. However, I can't say anything about the food because we did not have time to try it.

The service was lightning quick. An inspirational menu forced us to have the best lunch in a long, long time. The funky chicken waffle was brilliant!

Cafe & Bar 21 has an unusual menu with main dishes on waffles. Additionally there are some Lapland dishes, like reindeer meat and a Lapland platter which pulled us in and were nice. Still you can better head further north for more authentic Lapland dishes

Really filling meal, great atmosphere. Good value for money considering it’s in Finland. They do sweet and savoury waffles. I decided to start with a salad and then have a sweet waffle. Ice cream is tasty and I even got a cake to take away...More
