Cafe Arken is a lunch restaurant with alcohol serving rights, situated in the Arken building at Åbo Akademi. You can enjoy a tasty and nourishing low priced lunch, including a salad buffet and homemade bread in an old fashioned factory environment. The lunch menu offers several different choices from traditional home cooking to more internationally inspired dishes. We cater for special diets such as vegan, lactose and gluten free. In addition to lunch we provide a wide range of Fair Trade coffees and teas, soft drinks, lunch salads, filled baguettes, pastries and cakes.

The main dining area seats 168 guests at a time, with a few tables outside in the lobby. A cabinet with 32 seats is available for lunch and general meetings, it's ideal for an undisturbed meeting with a separate lunch buffet.

During the period 1st of April-31st of October we are able to host outdoor festival style events that can be tailored according to your wishes and needs. The forecourt at Arken is an ideal location for these types of events.
