Saw the reviews of this place and had to visit. We weren't disappointed.

The staff are super friendly and will discuss the local beers with you. The beers are excellent. Very craft, very tasty. Price wise... Its Bergen. Compared to beer in England it is expensive. Around £9 - £10 for a large glass. But the quality is very good and you won't find cheaper anywhere else.

We stopped for a waffle on our second visit. You get a massive and interesting variety of toppings, not just for the sweet toothed. We had one topped with caramel, chocolate and nuts. It was delicious. Once again the staff were friendly and enthusiastic with their recommendations.

Finally the decor, this is a cave of wonders. There's so much on the walls, ceilings that it will keep you entertained.

This place is great to enjoy a drink, munch a waffle and chill in relaxed, friendly and quirky surroundings.

Do not miss this unique restaurant! The decor is funky and unique, and they play retro music. Their waffles are fantastic, and come in many varieties - you can get them with peanut butter and jelly or with Brie and nuts. The coffee is terrific, and staff are very friendly.

Holy yes! So damn good. The waffles, the decorations, everything. I would have come back a thousand times over just to try every type of waffle on the menu. The waffle with brie and syrup was incredible.

We came for lunch on a cold, wet day and it was very quiet, only 4 tables occupied. The decor is.......well......eclectic to say the least! Very funky, very quirky with all sorts of stuff everywhere. Don't forget to look up, there are all sorts of things on the ceiling as well. The waffles are nice, freshly prepared, I had one with brie, maple syrup and peanuts (sounds strange, but it worked), hubby went for traditional jam and sour cream. So, it is only waffles, nothing outstanding, but it is a cute place to visit.

We were there after the celebration of the 17th of may. Odered 2 coffees, we were told it would take sometime to come. After 40 minutes wait for our 2 coffees we had to leave to meet with family. We went to the counter to say we were cancelling our order and were told that it was our fault and were not offer our money back (we did take other products). What a bad customer service spirit! I can understand that they were stressed and busy, but not accepting to cancel our order after 40 minutes wait, that is terrible!!

The interior alone is worth going for, but the coffee, drinks and food , especially the variety of waffles also makes this place worth a look. The lady who is usually behind the bar is so friendly and helpful and always seems genuinely happy to see you back. Highly recommend :)

I went to BarBarista to sample the Ægir microbrews. It was a delightful place to spend a couple of hours reading and enjoying some very good beer. I tried the IPA and the porter; both were very good. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming and the atmosphere was cozy; there is a tiny outdoor garden, but it was a bit wet on the day I was there (pretty typical for Bergen). Only one complaint: although my iPhone showed a Barbarista secured wifi network, the staff weren't able to help me log on (though they did offer to let me use their teminal); maybe the wifi was set up by someone who wasn't there that day. Anyway, I had a great time.

Wrote up this place two years ago. Stopped in in Oct. and discovered that nothing has changed. Atmosphere the same. Staff still great. Still offer local newspapers. The waffles are still tasty and the coffee is still excellent. And we still like stopping there. It's a great place to step out of the rain, get coffee and a waffle and watch the world go by.
