We had the Fish soup, the Fjord tapas and 2 expresso. The fish soup taste good: some pieces of fish, crayfish & vegetables, generous. The Fjordtapas tasted good too BUT the variety was short (only 3) and were not big enough to call them tapas....More

Cozy atmosphere and very friendly stuff! The burgers were good accompanied with potato wedges. For those with a sweet tooth I recommend the satisfying chocolate or carrot cake.

Although the food was accepable, the service was poor to horrible. The kitchen closed without announcing it and we could not have deserts. The waitress never cleaned out table untill we specifically asked her to do it. After so she left it half cleaned.

Came here multiple times on my day trips to Alesund. Each time was delicious, affordable (for Norway), and the ambiance was comfortable and relaxing. Carrot cake is a must - best I've ever had! Wonderful food!!!!

Ordered pulled pork sandwich on a rainy day. Cafe is cozy, food was delicious especially the olive bread, didn't try their coffee and carrot cake though, too full. May be next time ! The cafe is spacious too!

But maybe that's just a Europe thing... anyway this place was a gem. Cozy atmosphere in which I felt you can "live slow."
