Hovden is an old fishing village in the municipality Bø on the seaward side of Vesterålen, where sky and sea meet in the horizon. In these contrasting environments you can experience coastal culture in an active fishing village, close to nature and forces of nature, a wild and beautiful landscape and an inclusive community that currently consists of thirteen locals.
Storhavet kafé is located in an old school building from 1928 with a cozy atmosphere and a pleasant hostess.
We serve homemade dishes using local produce and products mostly of fish, both traditional and some with a new twist. We also have tasty cakes, coffee, alcoholic beverages and local history if you would like to hear.
The cafe is open every day (except Tuesdays) in June, July and August. The rest of the year it´s open some weekends in the spring and autumn. We are available for bookings of groups through the whole year, even outside the regular opening hours.
In the cafe we have capacity for up to 30 guests at long tables or 40 with single tables.
