Coffee break

Quiet place on a Sunday morning to stop for a coffee. Can sit in or out. Slow but workable wifi. Prices are reasonable and service is friendly.

One more place off the main cruise ship paths to discover some local beers and good food. Here the food is fresh and the service was friendly and fast. I enjoyed the classy atmosphere but felt perfect with a 6 year-old hanging on to me as well. In the theater district close to the old opera house, it's well positioned... More

This restaurant is great for all occasions with great food that doesn't ruin a students economy. Try the daily specials, they're especially delicious. My favourite is definately the fish soup.

Nice place to stay, eat and drink. We went there twice during our stay in Bergen. Relaxing, friendly and you can eat seafood, well cooked and at reasonable prices (for Norwegian standard)

Reasonable prices and and relaxed ambiance make this a popular place. They serve an assortment of sandwiches and omelettes as well as some heartier dishes like burgers and fish soup. I had the bacalao which was really good., Friendly service and free wifi as well. Good location right by the city centre.

I'm fairly easy to please, but this place is awful. Not sure why the reviews are good. Horrible coffee. Not much better than black colored sour water. Chairs are very uncomfortable. You have to lean forward the entire time because the backs lean too far down. Antiseptic decor.

It's a really nice place, that I can namedrop to most of my friends in Bergen and everyone knows of it, the food tastes good, the hot beverages does too, but I find it to be a bit too expensive for my taste.
