This café is located in No. 6 on the historic Sjøgata street in Mosjøen, in a long row of well-maintained wooden houses that date back to the 18th and 19th century.
A cultural café
Gilles Café does far more than serve good food – it is a cultural café that often offers great concerts. While the house itself preserves its 19th-century appearance, the interior is more inspired by the 1960s and 1970s. Suffice it to say that the café has a rather special ambience.
Year round, almost every Wednesday evening features a sushi and tapas buffet. Every weekday there is a hot buffet. From the à la carte menu you can order steaks, chicken, seafood, light dishes and more. Monday evenings are reserved for the Gilles Quiz. The café is fully licensed.
Gilles’ cultural calendar features a large number of concerts large and small throughout the year. During the summer, the largest concerts are held in Gilles Garden, the café’s own pleasant garden. Norwegian artists as well as foreign groups draw appreciative audiences of locals and tourists.
Mosjøen is the oldest town in Helgeland. Its events calendar always list a wide variety of exhibitions, performances, concerts and cultural festival throughout the year.
