We would like to pay homage to this lovely, beaming face: Gurli Riis Holmen, owner, magical hostess and talented chef of @baklandetskydsstation
Baklandet Skydsstation has been the historical darling of Trondheim since Gurli started running it 11 years ago. It is widely known for its warm kos vibes and delicious home cooked menu by Gurli herself. National Geographic Travel even named it the best café of the year in 2012, saying it was perhaps the most cozy cafe in all of Scandinavia!
Sadly (for Trondheim), she has decided to close the doors and retire - although she hopes for a new driver, a new creative force that will carry the this little city gem further.
According to Gurli "- it is very important to emphasize that this is not about corona, and this is not about bankruptcy. I quit because I think it's good to quit now, while I still have only good memories of the place, and all regular guests still have good memories of the place. Now I can say with Shakespeare that when the end is good, everything is good."
We wish you all the best Gurli, and want to thank you for being such a positive, driving force in our beloved city - your sunny disposition and warmth will be missed! #homeofnordicflavours
