Stood waiting at the bar, two meters from the barmaid, but only persons closest to the barmaid got served. I'm tall, with enough white hair to be seen. After 3-4-5 minutes I left for better service in the neighbourhood.

The variety and the quality of the beer at the place is really outstanding. The prices are really high for a budget traveler, but normal for Norway - Stavanger. You can also taste the beers before ordering.

A pleasant place for a quick coffee. The heaters (under the tables outside) help to make the cold bearable, as would the blankets and sheepskin throws if you weren't wrapped up for cold weather. The latte was nice, as was the cappuccino, but the pastry...More
