I used to live in Bergen, and pop into this bar whenever I am in town. A visual treat or assault, according to taste. A bustling, cosy, friendly place. I am quiet at ease going there on my own, day or night. Seems to be...More

You have to go to appreciate this place, photos do not do it justice. Great bar with a really good beer selection. Friendly staff and very unusual interior. Waffles with sour cream and jam were lovely.

I had heard about Waffles in Norway, and had been searching for the best place. This is it!! But beware, it's hard to top these. Once you eat them you just want to keep coming back. These are NOT Belgian waffles, they are much thinner...More

The vibe here is chill and comfortable. The decor is a site to see and the waffles are out of this world. I had the Caledonia with syrup, briefly and nuts. Highly recommend if you want something different and unique.
