Great atmosphere, perfect service and wonderful cafe and wafles. All we needed after having been walking for a bit seeing Kongsberg. We would definately go back to this littel gem!

Let you shoulders down and enjoy homemade limonade, sandwiches og a cup of coffie. You`re always met with a welcomming smile a friendly service. Vintage style cafe were ther doesn`t seem to be two of anything :) Selection of magazines, newspapers and books to relax with. Sit outside on sunny days.

Of alle the cafes in Kongsberg this is the best one. They serve really good coffee and nice homemade cakes. The interior is awesome with old signs and posters. There are also things you can buy here like dresses, earrings etc. Worth a visit!

Very cosy, homelike. The coffee was not so good. We ate cakes (carrotmuffin and pecan-cake) and they tasted very good, especially the carrot-muffin. Besides the food, it is in a cosy retro-style, with things from 50's and 60's decorating the rooms. They also sell home-made, retro-designed table-cloths, clothes for children, jewelry and so on. An interesting place.

Thank Ingebjørg B
