The concept of a café connects is often connected with Copenhagen-smart designer decor, cafe latte and newspapers on long sticks. In stark contrast to this is "The archipelago's smallest Café". It always sails – and this is how it should be.

The archipelago's smallest Café is on board the motor ferry Højestene which is the stable lifeline from Svendborg to Skarø and Drejø. On the two islands there are less than 100 people altogether. The ferry sails in a triangle, and the trip lasts between half an hour and an hour and fifteen minutes.

If the ferry's passengers want enjoy a hot drink on board, they had to bring a thermos themselves. But now the facilities of one of the ferry's two small salons has been upgraded considerably. An inspirational member of the crew got the idea to establish a self-service café in the salon. Now, in a corner there is hung a solid mahogany shelf with curb.

The shelf which if just a quarter of a square meter is practically all of the café. In all its simplicity, functioning includes an electric kettle, some cups and letters with coffee and tea. Everything for self-service.

Credit cards? No! The cash register is a small suspended mailbox. When you have dumped five kroner in it, one can sit down in the upholstered armchairs of the ferry and enjoy a warm drink plus free of charge - the view of South Funen with good conscience.
